At the heart of who we are is the good news of the Gospel, which is that the triune God—Father/Mother, Son/Christ, and Holy Spirit—creates, redeems, sustains, inspires, and rules all things and all people. Christ has called the church to care for the poor, the marginalized, and all those who are in need of love: all of God’s people. The mission of God in Christ gives shape and substance to the life and work of the Church. Below is just a glimpse of how First Presbyterian Church of Lincoln, Illinois participates in the mission of the church both locally and globally.
Christ has given the Church all the gifts necessary to not only proclaim but also embody the reign of God here on earth. It is our hope that you will share your gifts with us to further God’s reign of love in Lincoln and beyond.
At First Presbyterian Church we believe in order to make an lasting and transformational impact we need to develop relationships.
A major portion of our church budget goes to local organizations. We believe the church is called to care for the community beyond the walls of the church. The organizations we support are:
Habitat for Humanity
Logan County Health Dept. and Dental Services
Lincoln/Logan Food Pantry
