Our Mission

We are a church that has gathered weekly in Tioga around Christ and His Word for over 120 years. Our mission is to show the love of Jesus through what we teach and do. To this end, we seek the eternal blessing of knowing Jesus and making Him known. Whether in worshiping in song, teaching the Bible, or serving as disciples, our desire is to show the finished work of Christ on the cross and His gracious love for sinners forgiven by His sacrifice. We are evangelical in profession, evangelistic in practice, and look forward to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Our History

“‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4) This truth was close to the hearts and minds of the early pioneers that settled in this area. While they came to gain a livelihood, they understood that bread alone was not enough to have a happy living. A congregation where God's Word would be preached and the Sacraments administered was needed. So congregations were established, and Zion Lutheran Church has worshiped since 1903.
