1. We believe that God created us to glorify and enjoy Him forever. The fall of man into sin distorted our original purpose, but God has redeemed the church from the world through Christ as a new creation to fulfill that creational goal. This happens most prominently in our Worship when we gather together as the body of Christ. True Worship occurs when believers joyfully draw near to God, with their whole being, by Christ’s righteousness, guided by God’s Word to glorify him and enjoy fellowship with Him. The Word of God teaches us that the public gathering of God’s people is fundamental to the life of the Christian because it is in this context that God interacts with his people through His Word and Spirit. In our Worship, God speaks to us in the reading and preaching of his word and the administering of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. In our Worship, we speak back to God in our singing, praying, and responding to his Word. Worship is central at Zion because we believe that it is in the gathering of God’s people on the Lord’s Day that we fellowship uniquely with our God .
  • We believe that the church is a worshipping community that has been given the mission by God of spreading his Worship throughout the world through expanding his church. The mission of the church is spiritual in nature, and it is linked to the task of Christ her head, which is to seek and save the lost through the preaching of the gospel. At Zion, we desire to be vessels of God’s grace used to carry the message of Christ’s work and what it accomplished to our neighbors in Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Willow Spring, and throughout the world.
  • We believe that the church is the family of God and that Christians are brothers and sisters in Christ called to love and support one another after the pattern of Christ’s love for us. We, therefore, desire to Walk together in the grace of Christ, praying for one another, serving one another, bearing one another’s burdens, and encouraging one another’s faith and obedience to our heavenly Father. Our desire in all things is to bring glory to God by edifying his people so that we increasingly conform to the image of our savior Jesus and grow up into spiritual maturity.
