Youth 2-1-15 (4)Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Mt. Zion Cumberland Presbyterian Church is to love God, to love and serve others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. Through that love and service we are to proclaim the name of Jesus through our words and actions.  We have all been placed on this earth for God’s purpose.  Therefore, we will strive as a church and as individuals of the church to fulfill our mission of proclaiming Christ in word and in deed.

 

What we believe: 

The Bible – We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, the only infallible rule for faith and practice.

The Trinity – We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ – We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  We affirm his virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, sacrificial death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his personal return in power and glory.

Salvation – We believe everyone has sinned, lost communion with God, and under condemnation.  Salvation is the free gift of God to everyone who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for our sins on the cross.  Those who believe are eternally secure in Him.

The Church – We believe the church is the body of Christ and consists of everyone who has become children of God by faith.  Jesus Christ is the head of the Church.  Individual congregations are to be governed by elders, who serve as under shepherds.

The Sacraments – We believe there are two sacraments ordained by Christ: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

The Lord’s Day – We believe the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day, the Christian Sabbath, which is to be kept holy unto the Lord.  It is a day of rest and worship of the triune God, and commemorates the resurrection of Christ.

Things to Come – We believe at the Last Day, Jesus Christ will come to judge the living and the dead.  There will be a resurrection of the just and the unjust.  The righteous will enter into eternal blessedness and the wicked into eternal condemnation.
