Motto and Mission




Too often the Church is focused on its own agenda instead of the Kingdom's agenda.  If we were asked what our vision or dream would be for our church, we would say to fulfill HIS true purpose for Her.  It is our belief that since the Church belongs to Christ that our deepest desire should be to fulfill HIS purpose.  We believe that what Christ wants from our church is only a dream unless we make it come true.  Therefore, we must be going in Evangelism, growing in Discipleship, glorifying God in Worship, gathering in Fellowship, and giving in Ministry.  Each ministry should reflect some aspect of each one of these functions.  Until what Christ wants from our church is fulfilled, we will never make HIS dream come true.



The body of Zion Rest Missionary Baptist Church strives to make HIS dream come true by:
GOING in evangelism,
GROWING in discipleship,
GLORIFYING God in worship,
GATHERING in fellowship, and
GIVING in ministry.



Our purpose is to lead others into a vital and personal relationship with Jesus Christ, anticipating HIS imminent return.


Our Vision

Our vision is best reflected in the words of our Savior in Matthew 28:18-20 (GNT), 18 Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples; baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”  


Matthew 25:35-40 (NKJV) 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Although the latter section is eschatological in its context, we value its principles.
