Who We Are

The purpose of our church is to transform lives with the power of the Gospel of Jesus through the process of ministry that engages both believers and those who are seeking a relationship with God through worship, discipleship, serving, evangelism, and fellowship.

We are a diverse group of believers in Jesus Christ, walking together on a journey of faith. We are teachers, farmers, businessmen, homemakers, and people of many other occupations. As different as we are, we hold the common belief that the Bible is God’s Word, and it gives us direction for how to live our lives.

We believe that a personal relationship with Jesus is the only way to experience eternal life with God the Father. Through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, we are able to have a relationship through faith in which the Holy Spirit lives in us. We know that we are sinful people and we rely on God’s daily grace and forgiveness in order to have this personal relationship.

About Inman

Established in 1887, Inman, Kansas is a rural community of 1,200, located between Hutchinson and McPherson and an easy 50-minute drive from Wichita. People choose to live in Inman for a slower-paced personal life, small-town values, and quality schools. Inman has many amenities of a larger town, including a public library, wellness center, doctor’s clinic, dentist, nursing home, two banks, two parks, shopping and eating establishments.

Life enriching opportunities abound within the community.  Five local churches are united by the Inman Ministerial Alliance, and the museum, senior citizen center, and various clubs host recreational activities throughout the year. Inman Elementary and Junior-Senior High Schools are classified 2A by the Kansas State High School Activities Association, with an average of 40 students per grade level. Go Teutons!

Strengths

Greatest Strengths: Zoar is blessed with a strong heritage and a core of mature, committed believers who have faithfully worshipped and served together for many years. We tend to have relatively long pastor tenures, averaging ten years, with few transitions. A recent congregational exercise identified our core values: children and youth, Bible knowledge, giving, tradition, and world missions. Additionally, we identified our aspirational values: prayer, lost people/cultural relevance/evangelism, grace oriented/loving relationships, and small groups.

 
 

Worship

We believe that gathering together as the Body of Christ for worship is the greatest privilege we have as God’s people. Our worship services include a blended style of music, contemporary Biblical messages, and warm fellowship. Throughout the year, we celebrate special times of worship through communion, Christmas services, testimony services, baptisms, and missions festivals.
