To all who are weary and need rest; to all who are lonely and want friendship; to all who mourn and need comfort; to all who pray, and to all who do not, but ought; to all who sin and need a Savior; and to all whosoever will – this Church opens wide the door and says in the name of the Lord Jesus. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. (I Chronicles 16:29)
Rev. Dr. Frank M. Davis, Pastor

ZION BAPTIST CHURCH COVID-19 RESPONSE
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Only One who gives Healing, Help and Hope!
I pray that all is well and that you and your family are prospering and in good health as we face the challenges, changes, and crises of this troubled world.
As I consider my love for God, and my love, care and concern for the Health and Well-being of the Zion Baptist Church Membership, I write this letter to both encourage and inform you as we, among other problems, deal with this terrifying enemy called “Coronavirus” or “COVID-19”.
First, let me encourage you to be careful, not fearful, but “Faithful” and “Prayerful”! Remembering the Words of our God (Isaiah 41:10) “Fear thou not; for I am with thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
Truly, these last seven months have been a difficult season for all of us. We have suffered death of loved ones, sickness, and isolation. Because of the “Pandemic”, we have even been compelled to change our Christian methods as it relates to Kingdom Building Work. More specifically, underlying health conditions and pre-existing circumstances, deny many of us the privilege of assembling for Worship, thus missing the blessed reward of Christian Fellowship.
For those of you who are unable to attend our Worship Services, be assured that the Church is praying for you. We value your membership and your presence in the sanctuary is dearly missed. Praise God for affording us the capability of “Live Streaming” all of our services. And we hope that you have been blessed by it with a sense of Worship and Fellowship.
For those who have been attending our Worship Services, Thank You for your presence, participation, and prayers.
May we forever be reminded that all of us are precious in His sight.
I thank God for a compassionate and competent Church Staff who have shown extraordinary cooperation, doing all that is necessary to secure the Church operation in these trying and troubled days. Praise and Glory to God for allowing our doors to remain open even in the midst of the “Pandemic”.
Because of God’s Grace we are still able to secure our office operational responsibilities, as well as maintain our Wednesday Night Mid-Week Praise Prayer Service at 7:00 pm, Sunday School at 9:00 am, and Sunday Morning Worship at 10:30 am.
Thank God for our Prayer Moderators and please join us in prayer on our Prayer Line daily at 8:00 am, 12 noon and 6:00 pm. (1-712-432-3900: Code 283505#). Prayer is the answer to all of our questions and the solution to all of our problems.
I encourage each of to be “Faithful” and “Prayerful”. Again, “Thank you” for your constant love, fervent prayers and faithful support! May you be kept by God’s Grace.
Blessings and Peace,
Rev Dr Frank M Davis, Pastor

Our Historical Perspective
Zion Baptist Church then
Zion Baptist Church Present Day
The Zion archival collection is now available!!! The archive is deposited at Denver's Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library 2401 Welton Street, Denver, Colorado 80205, reflects Zion's rich and dynamic history from 1863-2019. Zion's documents can be used at the library by the general public for research projects and enjoyment.
Zion's collections consist of a variety of information including the 9-volume 4,000 page book, They Came to Colorado with the Dust of Slavery on Their Backs: The History of Zion Baptist Church 1863-2001. This includes various obituaries, souvenir programs, and photographs. The materials were collected and donated by Zion Historians Annette R Groves, Clementine W Pigford, and Kathryne A L McKinney (deceased).
Please feel free to use these valuable documents about one of Colorado's treasures.
The oldest African American Church in Denver
A Colorado Historical Landmark
Zion’s members have played sterling roles in our city, state, and nation. They have been ex-slaves, laborers, politicians, preachers, teachers, writers, musicians, artists, lawyers, doctors, activists, and many other folk. In many cases they have been the first to act upon and reach for opportunities that traditionally had been denied our people.
Zion Baptist Church was founded by a small group of people that came from other territories and towns. They came to Colorado with limited resources, little education, and wagons filled with determination. Historical records recognize November 15, 1865 as Zion’s official date of origin.
