The German Evangelical Lutheran Zion Congregation of Unaltered Augsburg Confession was organized in 1873 by a group of Lutheran settlers in the Hampton, Nebraska area. The first church building was dedicated in 1877. The second church building was dedicated in 1883. It burned in 1896, and was replaced the next year by the present edifice. Construction costs for the present building totaled $6,850. A school has been administered in conjunction with the Zion congregation.

Zion Lutheran Church is the mother church for two other Lutheran congregations, one in Polk, Nebraska, and one in Hampton, Nebraska.
