Welcome to Zion Chester. Though you may be a stranger to us, you are not a stranger to God. It is our hope that your moments with us will be warm and spiritually uplifting to the extent that you will want to worship with us. If you are searching for a "Church Home", we hope that your search has ended. "Come thou with us and we will do thee good." (Numbers 10:29) - We invite you to look around our website, and get a feel for our church.

Our Mission is to know Christ and make Him known in our church, community, and the global community. Jesus said, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations" (Matt. 28:19a), and, "But ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Our Jerusalem, is the community we live in. Our Judea is the city of Chester. Our Samaria is the state of Virginia, and our uttermost parts of the earth is the nation and the world. Each of us are called to be ministers of Christ Jesus. To that end we commit ourselves to God's mandate to know his Son, Jesus the Christ, as our personal Lord and Savior, and to make Him known the world over.

Church Motto:
"A Church and People of God, on Fire With the Holy Spirit"
Matthew 3:11

Because of Calvary,
