About Us

  About Us  


All people and all ages are welcome to attend Zion.  Come dressed up or dressed down.  However you come, you are welcome here.  God’s grace welcomes you, no matter who you are or where you come from—and so do we. We believe that Jesus Christ is the true Savior of all people. By his perfect life, innocent death, and triumphant resurrection he saves all lost sinners even without our help. Jesus Christ makes us special people, right with God and ready for life! We learn this from the Bible, God’s message of grace and guidance for us. Whether you are a life-long Christian or a curious observer with little religious background, we would love to share our worship with you

There is so much that could be shared about Zion, like our building plans, vision, and programs.   There is also so much more we'd like to do, and maybe you can be part of that mission.  We are proud to be a part of the great Gainesville community and looking for ways that our church community can have a greater positive impact in this great  community.  This is an exciting time to be a part of Zion.   Come and find out.

So who are we?
  • Zion: Through all of life's ups and downs, the peaks and valleys, we are a church that finds comfort and hope in our heavenly home which is often referred to as Mt. Zion in the Bible.  
  • Lutheran: we don't worship Martin Luther; we do stand with him on the importance of proclaiming all that Scripture teaches and we rejoice with him that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  The Lutheran Confessions do not create our doctrine; the Bible does; the Lutheran Confessions simply reflect Scripture's light.
  • Church: At it's simplest, "church" is just an assembly/gathering; in our culture, the word leans more toward a physical & tangible building.  Both are true.  At our physical property (church) on 34th St. & 16th Ave., we assemble as individuals (church) to have our hearts refreshed by God's good Word and to encourage one another as we go about our days.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  You can call us any time at 352-376-9940 or drop us an email at p.b.wrobel3@gmail.com.  As always, you are invited to visit us Sunday morning at 10:30 AM.
