We pray that Zion Church is a pathway that leads you to God’s profound and personal love for you.
We hope that every sermon, song, and opportunity for service inspires you to know that God’s loving presence in your life is active.
We believe that it is not by accident that you have visited this website but that you are here because there is a beautiful plan for your life that God is unfolding.
We are humbled by and grateful for the opportunity to join you and God as His loving intention for your life is revealed.
We are expectant that God’s relentless love will transform us all.
Blessings and peace,
Pastor Keith and First Lady Vicki Battle

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that in its original form is without error. We believe that the Bible is the final and sole authority for all Christian life and practice.
We believe in the eternal existence and Personhood of God. We believe that God is One in essence, but has revealed Himself in three distinct personalities – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son. We believe in His preexistence, His incarnation, His virgin birth, His physical death, His bodily resurrection from the grave, His ascension into heaven, and His imminent return to receive His church and to one day rule on earth for 1,000 years.
We believe that all people are born sinners and are therefore separated from God and His holiness.
We believe that people cannot save themselves and make right their relationship with God through good deeds.
We believe that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way by which people can be saved.
We believe in the resurrection of the human body, the eternal existence of all people either in heaven or hell and in divine judgment and rewards.
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit who convicts, regenerates, baptizes, indwells, fills, enlightens, seals, and empowers believers for godly living.
We believe that the church is the spiritual body of which Christ is the Head.
We believe that there is one church and one body of Christ made up of many different people, denominations, cultures, worship, and ministry styles. Therefore, we seek unity within the body of Christ on essential doctrinal positions, and liberty on non-essentials.
