Mt. Zion Church Doctrine
The original writings are inspired by God and is without error. It is accurate in all matters to which it speaks, spiritual, historical, and scientific and in context. The Scriptures are one book of the Old and New Testaments and are the foundation of the faith. They teach us about God, what is right, what is good, what is wrong, what is evil, and how we can be forgiven and have a relationship with God. (Ps. 19:7 II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:21).
Man is created in the image and likeness of God. In Adam, all mankind fell into sin with the result that all men are sinners. Men are justly condemned to eternal judgment under the wrath or anger of God and can do nothing to merit salvation. Without Christ, a person will suffer the wrath of God. (Gen. 1, Gen. 2 & 3, Rom. 2:2,3,5; Eph. 2:8,9; Gen. 1:27, 9:6; Rom. 3:23; 5:12; Eph. 2:1)
The eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, being born of the virgin Mary, and is perfectly God and perfectly man. He died physically on the cross and was bodily resurrected three days later, and thereafter bodily ascended to heaven. (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1: 18-25, John 1:1, 14, 18; 5:18; 1 Cor. 15: 3-4, Heb. 1:1-9; 4:15 5:8; I John 5:20; I Tim. 2:5)
Salvation is given to those men whom God reveals Himself to and are drawn to Christ by the Holy Spirit. The only means to their salvation is belief in Christ’s substitutionary death on the cross and His resurrection. If a person is in Christ they will have life and life eternal through the salvation that Christ has accomplished. People that are believers in Christ are saved by Grace through faith in Christ alone, by the Word of God alone, for God's glory alone. (Acts 4:12; 13:38,39; I Cor. 15:1-4; Rom. 4:4,5; 5:1; John 3:16; Eph. 2:8-10; Acts 16:31; Eph. 1:4,5; Rom. 8:29-30)

Dispensations and Time Periods
The blessed and only hope of the church is the imminent return of Christ. Christ will return to restore all things. The events of the return of Christ take place in the following order: the rapture of the church, the tribulation, the second advent, the establishment of the reign of Christ on earth for one thousand years, and finally the eternal state of punishment for the unsaved and the eternal state of blessing for the saved. (Acts 1:11, Titus 2:13; I Thess. 1:10; 4:13-18; 5:4-10; John 14:1-3; Matt. 24:21, 29, 30; 25:31-46; Rev. 3:10, 20:1-6; 11-15)
