Our Story

In an age of individualism and spiritual autonomy, Love Zion exemplifies family and community. It is a place to learn, a place to grow, a place to be challenged, a place to worship, a place to serve, a place to struggle, and a place to triumph, a growing multi-generational fellowship where the wisdom of the past meets the innovation of the future with hope in the present. With a 30 year history of meeting the spiritual and social needs of North Philadelphia the best is yet to come. Welcome Home.

Our Mission

Love Zion Baptist Church has been impacting North Philadelphia through service and the word of God since 1984. We endeavor to be an ever-growing family of believers, following the teachings and example of Jesus the Christ, holistically transforming our local community and world through the love of God while being continually transformed ourselves.

  • Christ centered with Jesus Christ as the center of all we do.

  • Discipleship focused affirming Jesus’s instruction to make disciples of mankind.

  • Mission purposed as we engage the world, locally and globally, in the obedience to the Great Commission.
