"Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord" (Zech.4:6) 

 There is a Mandate on this Ministry

 Zion Baptist Church, 128 years of rich and proud history; proclaiming the Gospel at 10 Josephine Street, Berryville, Virginia under the leadership of the energetic, hospitable, gregarious and anointed visionary, Reverend Delbert Hicks with the graceful and amiable First Lady Cecilia Hicks serving by his side.

 Soon to celebrate 129 years of faithfulness and ministry: souls are still being nourished and saved, with the infalliable, impregnable, will not return to Him void, Word of God.  Zion where the Word is magnified and the Spirit of the Lord hovers us.  Weekly the Word is being taught in Sunday School at 10:00 a.m. and at 11:00 a.m. Morning Worship commences;  Bible Study and Prayer Service is on Wednesday's at 7:00 So you get a fresh Rhema Word and a fresh perspective on a weekly basis.
Zion "The Ship" where God always "Shows Up."  And we continue to strive for excellence.
