Our Mission & Vision

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith

We believe that a person can attain salvation through faith in God and Jesus Christ. Baptists also believe in the sanctity of the Bible. They practice baptism but believe that the person must be wholly immersed in water

Baptists believe that faith is a matter between God and the individual (religious freedom). To them it means the advocacy of absolute liberty of conscience.

Our Theme

  There is a Balance in Life 

John 10:10


The scales of life are always tilted one way or another. It becomes our responsibility to maintain a balance. Our approach at Little Zion Baptist Church is to minister to the whole being which includes the Mind, Body and Soul.

An individual cannot dichotomize themselves. It is impossible to split yourself down the middle and be spiritual one day, political another day, forget about your economic well being and go live life any and every way you please. There is a balance in Life.

 In the book of John, chapter 10 and verse 10 it states: The thief does not come except to steal, and kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

 The abundant life consists of an abundance of love, joy, peace, and the rest of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). Jesus came that people may have life in Him that is meaningful, purposeful, joyful, and eternal. We receive this abundant life the moment we accept Him as our Savior.

 Jesus promises us a life far better than we could ever imagine, a concept reminiscent of 1 Corinthians 2:9. Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man, The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

 The apostle Paul tells us that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, and he does it by His power, a power that is at work within us if we belong to Him (Ephesians 3:20).

 Whether you want to accept this or not we are Spiritual, Social, Political and Economic well beings. Our lives are tied to these areas. But before we begin to have visions of lavish homes, expensive cars, worldwide cruises, and more money than we know what to do with, we need to pause and think about what Jesus teaches regarding this abundant life.

 In terms of economic, academic, and social status, most Christians do not come from the privileged classes. Clearly, then, abundant life does not consist of an abundance of material things.

 Join us at Little Zion Baptist Church and learn more about The Balance in Life. The experience is inspirational, enlightening and fulfilling. We are hear to help you grow and enjoy life. It is done through the word of God.


Our Beliefs & Values

1. Jesus is Lord

Baptists believe that Jesus Christ, being eternally God, only begotten Son and the visible expression of the invisible God, effectively procured salvation for all creation through his death, burial and resurrection. He is the one assigned by God the Father to rule with authority over all of creation. Every area of the believer’s life and the life of the church is to be subject to the Lord.

2. The Word of God is the Authoritative Rule of Faith and Practice

Baptists believe that God communicates his will through the inspired Word of God. For Baptists, the Bible is the final authority in matters of faith and practice.  It is to be interpreted responsibly under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit within the community of faith.

3. The Priesthood of All Believers

The Bible affirms the value of each person as having been created in the image of God, and also declares each person morally responsible for his/her own nature and behaviour. Baptists believe that inherent in the worth of each person is also the right and competency of each individual personally to deal directly with God through Jesus Christ. This principle also suggests our responsibility to serve other believers in intercession and nurture: we are priests to each other.  Baptists believe that no group or individual has any right to compel others—forcefully or politically—to believe or worship as they do. Rather, Baptists have historically been champions of religious liberty.

4. A Believers’ Church

Baptists believe that Jesus Christ chooses to form his church by bringing together believers for the purpose of worship, witness, fellowship and ministry (both spiritual and social). Baptists recognize the church universal as all who truly profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. They also profess their understanding of the church as being visibly expressed in local congregations. Each local church must thus be made up of believers who, upon their profession of faith and their baptism (almost always by immersion), are incorporated into the local church through the activity of the Holy Spirit. Baptists believe that Believers’ Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances required by the New Testament and are to be administered by the local church.

5. Mission and Evangelism

We have a story to tell that is mandated by our Lord in the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20. Our calling is to share God’s message of love and salvation with each person.   Each Christian has a duty to share their faith with others.  Baptists continue to be very active in mission efforts, both in local and global contexts. We recognize that mission is not just evangelism, but also includes promoting justice, social welfare, healing, education and peace in the world.  It is a holistic approach that expresses care for both the needs of the human soul and the social needs that affect all of life.

6. Church Autonomy and Association

Government in a local church is controlled by the principles of the priesthood of all believers, the Lordship of Christ, the authority of the Scriptures and the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit. Christ, present in the lives of congregational members, leads them corporately to discover and obey his mind and will. Such ‘congregational government’ calls for and expresses the equality and responsibility of believers under the Lordship of Christ. Baptist churches also recognize the need to temper the exercise of their autonomy in order to ‘associate’ by linking regionally, nationally and internationally for ministry, mission, support and fellowship.

7. Freedom and Equality

Emerging from our convictions about the priesthood of all believers, we affirm that in Jesus Christ all people are equal. Each one is free to be in relationship with God and to express a faith that is not coerced. Faith cannot be predetermined by someone else, but is the right of and responsibility of each individual as they seek a relationship with God based on their own personal commitments. A further extension of the principle of the Lordship of Christ and the priesthood of believers is to be found in the Baptist conviction that there must exist a separation between the church and civil governments.
