Zion Christian Seminary is an online and in person Bible college that is affiliated with New Heaven and New Earth (NHNE) Church. Time, location, and finances are not a factor as we strive to be accessible to anyone who is hungry to learn God’s Word. We believe that the one true God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth can be found through His Word in the Bible. We strive to bring Christians of diverse backgrounds together by setting aside traditions and focusing on studying the words of the book that unites us, the Holy Bible (Psalms 119:165). As we work toward this goal, we hope all will achieve freedom, peace, and love (Jn 8:32, Gal 5:22, Rom 14:19) centered on the standard of God’s truth.
We seek to shape the spirits of those who study with us, giving them a fuller understanding of God’s Word and helping them truly embody the reality of God’s image and likeness.
Zion Christian Seminary College shares the responsibility of spreading the Word of God based on the Holy Bible. The objectives of the college are centered on the following:
- Through acceptance that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
- Through understanding that God fulfills just as He promises (Isaiah 14:24).
- Through the awakening of a desire to involve one’s life in Christian service to the glory of God (Colossians 1:9-10, Matthew 16:27, Revelation 22:12)
- Through the exercising of the ability to discern truth from lies (I John 4:6).
We believe that the Holy Bible is the word of God, recorded by men who were inspired by the Spirit of God. The collection of the sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, contain truth without any error. The Bible is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard of all conduct, creeds, and opinions (2 Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-20; Isaiah 8:20; John 17:17).
We believe that there is one living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Creator and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love (Exodus 20:2-3, John 17:3, I Corinthians 8:6, I Timothy 1:17, Revelation 4:11). We believe that God is understood in three distinct forms, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus is the Son of God through whom we can know God (Mt 11:27). Jesus was born according to prophecy (Mt 1:18-23). He worked and spoke on behalf of God (Jn 5:19, Jn 17:8), died for the sins of humanity, and resurrected on the third day, all according to prophecy (1 Cor 15:3-4). Jesus is both one with the Father (Jn 10:30) and sitting at the right hand of God eternally in authority over all creation (Acts 7:55-56). We believe that it is only through Jesus that we can have salvation and eternal life (Jn 11:25-26, Jn 14:6).
The Holy Spirit works within the hearts of believers to teach, convict, sanctify, comfort, strengthen, and encourage (Rom 8:26, 1 Cor 2:10-14, Gal 5:22-23, Eph 3:16); it also gives the power to speak God’s words on God’s behalf (2 Pt 1:21). But the Holy Spirit that came at the Pentecost was only a down payment of what God has promised us (2 Cor 1:22, 2 Cor 5:5, Eph 1:14). The fullness of God’s Holy Spirit will come upon us when we are fully changed (1 Cor 15:51-54), when the kingdom comes, and when God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven (Mt 6:10, Rv 21:1-7).
We believe it is God’s desire for all of humanity to learn the truth, be saved, and receive eternal life together with Him (1 Tm 2:4, 1 Jn 2:25). This incredible blessing is not something we can earn through our actions; rather, it is something we receive by the grace of God through faith in the blood of Jesus (Eph 2:8-9). True saving faith is living faith in Jesus, his work, and all of his teachings leading to holiness (Jas 2:17-18).
We believe that all believers are meant to be united as one body of Christ, working together for the glory of the Lord, and to bring others to salvation as commanded by the Lord according to the great commission that God desires for all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth (I Corinthians 12:12-27, John 17:21-23, Matthew 28:19-29, I Timothy 2:4).
