Frequently Asked Questions

When are your services?

Our worship service on Sunday starts at 10am. Sunday School for all ages starts at 9am each week.  We are located in Kurten, Texas off of Hwy 21 about 9 miles east of College Station/Bryan. Take the Kurten exit onto Texas 21 Business and then right on North FM 2038. Our address is 977 N FM 2038.  We have people who come from all around to attend our church.  We hope to see you soon!

What about childcare?

Zion loves kids and we value young families! We offer nursery services for newborns - 3 years old during the service.   We have a children's moment during the service for ages 5 and under 2-3 times a month.  Before the sermon our 4-5 year olds can choose to leave and go to children's church.   All of our workers are screened and have background checks, but more importantly they love kids.

What makes Zion unique?

At Zion we have a passion to see everyone in our community and out lying areas come to know Jesus Christ as Lord.  We understand that life has it's struggles, but we believe that the church is the place to come when times are tough.  We want to encourage you to take your next step in your walk with God and we want to provide opportunties for you to see true life change.   True life transformation comes through sound Biblical teaching focused on Jesus Christ.  This teaching is proclaimed from the pulpit and throughout all of our ministries. Zion is purposeful in welcoming visitors and encouraging them to get involved in the fellowship.

What is Zion’s worship in song like?

Our music is a combination of contemporary songs and classic hymns. Finding a balance of the old and new is a challenge, yet a delight. We believe lyrical content is more important than style. We value all generations and seek to find a mix that allows all people to engage in authentic worship each week. Our services have a choir and our worship pastor on the piano and occaisionally he is accompanied by a guitarist.   The purpose of the praise team is to facilitate corporate worship; it is not about performance or entertainment. Our goal is to make God the center of our worship. It is not about us, it is all about Him!

What is Zion’s preaching like?

We believe in preaching the full counsel of God. Our pastors typically preach through entire books of the Bible . We find this gives the people a fuller picture of who God is and how great His Word is. Throughout the year there are a few short topical sermon series, holiday themed sermons, or sermons about the vision of the church. We spend time in both the Old and New Testaments. During the school year, our Community Groups will often have sermon based studies which help to apply what we have learned on Sunday mornings in a more personal way.

What does Zion believe?

Our Beliefs and Vision

We are a non-denominational Evangelical Bible church. We believe that the Bible is inerrant and that every word in the Bible is God breathed. We believe that God is One and that He has a triune nature of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe and preach the God-ordained Lordship of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. We believe the core Christian foundation doctrines of salvation by faith in Christ alone, redemption through the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, the renewing of the mind by the Word of God, and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Our church emphasizes that Christian service, discipleship, and fellowship are necessary for a believer’s spiritual maturity. We believe in the coming return of Jesus Christ, the Day of Judgment, the thousand-year reign of Christ, eternal life for those who believe, and eternal hell for those who do not. We practice the common Christian ordinances of baptism in water and communion, the singing of songs and hymns, and teaching and preaching from the Bible with the purpose of life application. We are firmly committed to the great commission of the Lord Jesus Christ—the spreading of the gospel for the salvation of people’s souls with a heavy emphasis on making disciples. A complete view of our Doctrinal Beliefs and Practices can be viewed HERE or by downloading our booklet (PDF) HERE.

How can I know Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord?

 

This is an important question and you can watch the video above or read about it for yourself. If you prefer to read about it, grab a Bible such as a NIV or NASB translation or go to http://www.biblegateway.com and follow along.

God is Holy ~ 1 Peter 1:16 and Matthew 5:48

What do these verses tell us about who God is?

All have Sinned ~ Romans 3:23

What does this tell us about all people? Have you sinned? Do you fall short of the Glory of God?

Penalty for Sin ~ Romans 6:23

What is the penalty for sin?

Death means both physical death and spiritual death. We are eternally separated from God and sent to hell forever. But, God in His great love has provided the answer to our greatest problem.

Jesus Christ is the Answer ~ John 3:16, 1 Peter 2:24 and Romans 10:9-10

What does confess mean? What does believe mean? Agree with God about your sinful condition and acknowledge that you cannot make it to heaven without Christ. Repent (turn from your sin) and trust Him as your Savior. Obey His Word.

Do you want to put your trust in Christ alone for eternal life as the only way to overcome sin?

If so, follow the guideline in Romans 10: 9-10 and begin a new life with Christ.

If you have decided to repent, believe, and follow Jesus Christ, contact us today.
