What We Believe:

We believe that the only true God is the Triune God; one God made of three distinct and separate persons. He is revealed in Holy Scripture as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Holy Spirit works in Baptism, giving eternal life and forgiveness of sins to people of any age.
 
We believe the Gospel gives forgiveness and reconciliation.
 
We believe in the Apostles, Nicene, Athanasian Creeds, as well as the Book of Concord (1580) are faithful summaries of Biblical teaching.
 
We believe that through the church God equips and empowers believers to serve Him by serving others and sharing the good news about Jesus.
 
We believe it is important to Sing His praises; and to share in His sacraments.

History:

Trinity Lutheran Church is the oldest Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Founded in 1881 we continue to Connect People to Christ in His Word and Love. While Trinity had a humble beginning, it has an illustrious history-which testifies to the grace and mercy of Almighty God. 

The Civil War had been over for sixteen years, and the Nebraska Territory had been a state for fourteen. In 1881 Lincoln was a booming prairie town with a population of thirteen thousand, the capitol of the state, and growing so fast that it still lacked paved streets, water and sewage systems. A massive immigration of Europeans seeking a better life in this new country was underway (by 1891 Lincoln’s population doubled). Among those immigrants were the German Lutherans who founded Trinity Lutheran Church.
