Latest news for our Zion family this Lord's Day

Sunday is Coming!

And we don't want you to miss a single moment!

God has blessed our church family with so many exciting things that are happening - check out everything that is coming up. 

The Power Of Sonship
Jesus is the Son of God par excellance. There is no One like Him. Yet He shares His sonship with believers by having them adopted into His family. God is a father to the fatherless, which means we properly fear Him, receive His grace and blessings, and are discipled and disciplined by Him. This is taught in the biblical doctrine of adoption, a doctrine the Reformed tradition has long cherished. But this is not an impersonal doctrine to check off and a theology exam; adoption is about the Holy Spirit who lives within believers! He is the "Spirit of adoption," and that brings powerful benefits!

But Christians must also be discerning. Want to go to "black belt" levels of Christian thinking? There is a "sonship theology" that has become very popular in certain circles. How should we evaluate such thinking? Understanding what the "sonship movement" is can help us understand the challenges within. There are definite concerns if we put so much emphasis on family relationships that ignore biblical truth.
