We invite you to join us online at 8:00 am if you cannot attend in person. While we recognize online experience cannot replace face-to-face gathering, we understand the complexities of work, travel, and illness, and hope this option is a great alternative for when you’re unable to make it in person.
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear and believe this Good News have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
As it says in John 14:6, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Salvation is only given through Christ. His is the once-for-all-time sacrifice for sin.
The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
Zion Lutheran is an LCMS Church in Mayer.
A Lutheran is a Christian who believes and confesses the teachings of the Bible as explained by Martin Luther and other theologians during the early 16th century. These theologians sought to correct errors that were being taught by the Christian church during this era, with the hope of having a more biblical, Christ-centered, and unified church. The foundations of their teachings stemmed from a few guiding principles. We gather together to worship the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as He has revealed Himself to the world through His Word.
Zion Lutheran commits to the use of the historic liturgical framework as a means for structuring our worship, this provides a structure for what happens in the services each week. We are blessed to be able to gather as a family of faith around the Word and Sacraments, receiving the gifts of forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation.
