About Us

Serving the community of Hollidaysburg since 1803.

Who we Are

Zion Lutheran Church is one of the 115 Lutheran Churches in the Allegheny Synod and part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

We are followers of Jesus Christ who serve, worship, and teach in his name. We are a sacramental church, believing that God is present in the water and word of Holy Baptism and the bread and wine of Holy Communion. We are a creedal church, following in the rich and ancient traditions of the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds. We are a scriptural church, for the Bible is the bedrock of our worship and the standard of our teachings. We are a people of grace, believing that we are saved by the gift of God’s grace alone—not by anything we do. As Jesus followers it is our mission to continue his ministry, “making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).”
