Zion Spring Baptist Church



Shine in the love of God's grace, every day.

Zion Spring has been serving the faithful for over eighty years. Our mission is to spiritually uplift our community, and work towards a greater good and the advancement of GOD's kingdom here on earth. We are tireless in our efforts to feed the hungry and clothe the poor as demonstrations of the Gospel for those who have yet to embrace their faith. We are a refuge to those seeking spiritual healing and we strive to encourage others to  embrace the path that will lead them to Jesus Christ and a brand new life.  Our faith causes us to endeavor to serve all people. We do not discriminate. We merely attempt to support our fellow man, and bear witness to the transforming power of GOD, the light of His love, and the tenderness of His care for  His creation.

Our Vision

At the Zion Spring Baptist Church, we engage to address the spiritual as well as physical needs of our neighbors here in the Avondale community of Birmingham, Alabama.  We endeavor to teach and demonstrate the love of GOD in practical ways while continuing to affirm our commitment to humbly carry out Christ's command to ‘love thy neighbor as thyself.’


Zion Spring is affiliated with the National Baptist Convention of America, Inc, where Reverend Samuel Tolbert is our President.  We are members of the New Era Progressive Baptist State Convention of Alabama, where Pastor Robert M. Alexander, Jr. (First Missionary Baptist Church, East Boyles) is our President.  And we are members of the Village Spring Manly District Association, where Pastor Q.E.
