Zion Statement of Faith

Trinity with Crown, Cross, and DoveWith the universal Christian Church, Zion Lutheran Church teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

Being “Lutheran,” our congregation accepts and teaches the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.


Sunday – 8:30 am Divine Service uses the traditional Lutheran hymnal liturgy. An organ leads the music. Communion is celebrated on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month.
Sunday – 10:45 am Divine Service is a blended worship style using a varied printed liturgy (creative worship). The music is both contemporary and traditional. The music is lead by piano, guitar and organ. Communion is celebrated on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month.
Saturday – 5:00 pm Contemporary Service is a worship style that uses a projection screen for music and liturgy. The service is held in the chapel area in the back of the sanctuary.

Zion & Dakota Boys & Girls Ranch Partnership

DBR 2Zion Lutheran Church has partnered in Ministry with Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch. Zion’s Associate Pastor spends 10 hours each week in ministry at the Western Plains facility in Bismarck. His work is with High School age youth.

This partnership includes a sponsorship program for each of the youth, providing gifts at Christmas and Easter baskets during the Easter season.

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is dedicated to helping at-risk children and their families as an expression of our joy and faith in Jesus Christ, following Christ’s example to serve the needs of others.

Each young person is different and each young person has different needs. As a result each young person will respond to help differently. Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch has developed many programs to help young people in a way that will work for them.
