Who We Are
Zion Lutheran Church has been serving the Crete community for over 150 years. Zion proclaims the truth about our Savior Jesus around Crete, Illinois and the world. We are partnered with the other churches of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, united in faith, mission, and teaching. As men, women and children united in faith and worship by the Word of God, the WELS exists to make disciples throughout the world for time and for eternity, using the gospel to win the lost for Christ and to nurture believers for lives of Christian service, all to the Glory of God.
Zion is one of two congregations that supports and operates Illinois Lutheran Schools, a Pre-K through 12th grade academic program founded on God's Word. It serves students from the church and community, providing students a wide range of opportunities to grow spiritually, academically and socially. You can find out more by visiting www.ilhs.org.
Inspired by the love of Christ our Savior, we are determined to seek and to save the lost, and to teach his believers to do the same.
