In 1965 Zion Baptist Church was born from the vision of Pastor Jack Glass after a day and a half of prayer and fasting. Pastor Glass saw a need for a church which would stand for God’s truth and honour whatever the cost, outside the camp, separated unto Christ, bearing His reproach. With the help of Mike Hawkins, a church elder, an evangelical constitution was drawn up which would be reflected in the church’s name Zion Sovereign Grace Baptist. The name means, raised up, and reflects the church’s testimony proclaiming that she has been raised up by God to stand for path of biblical truths in a day of apostasy.
Our mission is to wholeheartedly follow Jesus and faithfully make Jesus followers so that the blessing of Jesus’ reign is known by everyone.
