See, I will bring them from the land of the north and gather them from the ends of the earth. Jeremiah 31:8. They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer… praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved. Acts 2:42,47
The vision of Zion Church is threefold: up-reach (worship), out-reach (evangelism) and in-reach (discipleship) by approaching people with various backgrounds. This involves trusting in the LORD, spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and helping people grow to become true disciples of Christ through Worship, Communion, Bible Study, Prayer, and Fellowship.

Statement of faith
Bible: We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, living Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
God: We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19)
Jesus: We believe that Jesus is 100% God and 100% man, born to a virgin, lead a sinless perfect life, died on the cross as a punishment for the sins of men, rose again after three days and will return again in full power and glory. (Romans 1:3-4)
Man: We believe man as a creation of God, but due to his disobedience to God inherited sin and hence separated from God, and is totally incapable of redeeming himself and restoring the broken relationship with God. (Romans 3:23)
Sin: We believe sin is disobedience to God. This separates a holy, righteous and loving God from His most beloved creation, man. (1 John 3:4)
Salvation: We believe salvation is achieved only by God’s grace through faith alone in His only begotten son Lord Jesus Christ and His atonement work on the cross. (Ephesians 2:8)
Gospel: We believe Gospel is the good news about God sending down His only begotten son as a man to live a perfect life, die as a substitute for mankind’s sin and rise again from the dead the third day. Everyone who truly believes this message with a repentant heart is granted salvation. (John 3:16)
Baptism: We believe baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. Taking baptism does not make anyone a Christian, but it is what a true Christian takes part in to express his/her inward conviction. (Acts 2:38)
Church: We believe that Church is the body of Christ, who is its Head. Church is universal consisting of all the believers in Lord Jesus Christ purchased by His precious blood. The Church identifies itself through local representation of believers. (Acts 20:28, Ephesians 1:22-23)
Fellowship: We believe in the importance of gathering of believers to have fellowship with God and with each other for mutual edification. (Hebrews 10:25)
Heaven: We believe that Heaven is a place of eternal life with God, angels and all those who are purchased by the precious blood of Lord Jesus Christ. (John 14:2-3)
Hell: We believe that hell is a place of eternal damnation for Satan, demons and all those who are judged at the Great White Throne because of unforgiven sins and unbelief in Christ. (Matthew 25:41)
