About our Church

Zion Christian Assembly and Ministries International, Incorporated


We are a full-gospel, Pentecostal-charismatic fellowship with a Baptist history, located in the rapidly changing rural setting of Dawson County, Georgia.

 

Our music and singing promotes an atmosphere during our praise and worship in a contemporary style.


The messages from our pastor and guest ministers will help you develop

a sustainable confidence

through life-application messages of good news

emphasizing a life-style based on the written Word of God.

We believe the Bible is the final authority for life in every situation.


Our mission is to show the compassion, comfort and care of Jesus as we learn, live, and share the message of Jesus.

"The LORD dwells in Zion!" Joel 3:21 NIV

What to expect

WE PRAISE and WORSHIP the LORD based on SCRIPTURE


You will notice people clap their hands while singing, during the message, and other appropriate times during our worship.


During the Pastor's Message & Service Length


There is interaction during the messages the Pastor delivers with laughter, affirmations of ‘amen’, and it is all in order and uplifting! Pentecostal expressions abound around us as we individually and corporately worship the risen Savior.


The sermons are practical and help you deal with real life issues. Multi-media is provided along with the messages, which helps you follow the Pastor’s message and also helps you take notes for later study.


What you learn on the weekend, you’ll be able to use during the week.


Services vary in length from 60 to 90 minutes – not much when you consider the benefit you receive.

 

WHAT WE WEAR


When it comes to attire, you'll see some people wearing suits and ties, ladies in dresses and high-heels,and others wearing khakis or jeans and a polo.


Seriously.we are concerned more about meeting your real life needs, and less about what you're wearing.


When you are here we want to help you connect with the personal hope and practical help that God gives!


Psalm 47 (excerpts from The Message) 

Applause, everyone. Bravo, bravissimo!

    Shout God-songs at the top of your lungs!

God Most High is stunning,

    astride land and ocean.


Loud cheers as God climbs the mountain,

    a ram’s horn blast at the summit.

Sing songs to God, sing out!

    Sing to our King, sing praise!

He’s Lord over earth,

    so sing your best songs to God.

God is Lord of godless nations—

    sovereign, he’s King of the mountain.

Princes from all over are gathered,

    people of Abraham’s God.

The powers of earth are God’s—

    he soars over all.


"You are the light of the world. ...Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16 NIV

Sherri's degree in Business Administration, and many years experience in executive church business administration and organization provides a solid foundation for assisting her husband in leading the church and outreach ministries.
