More Than A Tradition

Living with identity, value and purpose

Making disciples of

Jesus Christ

for the transformation of the world

Each person is a unique creation of God and, through grace, is a child of God. The people of First Lutheran Church welcome all because God welcomes all, without regard for race or culture, sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status, physical or mental challenges, imprisonment, addictions, socio-economic circumstances, or anything else that too often divides us. First Lutheran Church is a spiritual community that celebrates the gifts of God that can empower us to engage in the struggles of life, to care for each other, and to serve Christ where we work and live. Our unity is in Christ.

“I remember the first worship service I attended at First Lutheran Church. What a wonderful experience it was! Upon entering the church and observing members, it was quite clear that First Lutheran was a community that cared. Jesus will meet us where we are and he loves us regardless if we are the woman at the well or the man with leprosy. The unconditional love of Christ is reflected in the community of First Lutheran. It is a place of belonging, a place of love, a spiritual home and a family of believers. Christ's love is reflected at First Lutheran through their mission, along with their desire for an inclusive community. Each Sunday, I am spiritually inspired by the sermons which renew my desire to lead as Jesus led by being kind-hearted, empathetic and doing all things with love in my heart. I am excited to serve First Lutheran and our Lincoln community.”

Amy Harrison

At First Lutheran, we believe we are called to a life of

discipleship that is fueled by

worship and prayer, learning and serving.


We desire to grow in our understanding of what it means to be disciples of Christ and ambassadors of his love and grace.
