As a member church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Mt. Zion honors Martin Luther's belief that the church is always being 're-formed' or undergoing change in service to God's will for creation.
As expressed in the words of the ELCA's website,
"The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
ELCA teaching or theology serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching or theology prepares members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit helps to create, strengthen, and sustain faith in Jesus Christ and the life we have in him. That life-giving work continues every day, as Martin Luther explained in the Small Catechism: the Holy Spirit “calls, gathers, enlightens and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth and preserves it in union with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.”
As such, we believe that we are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace members and visitors as whole people – questions, complexities, and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world."
