Mission and Vision


As a faith community empowered by God’s grace to live in and act through Christ, we share love through worship, service, ministry, and fellowship.


Seeking to embody God’s loving grace, the people of First Evangelical Lutheran Church are called by the Holy Spirit to:

  • Welcome and nurture all people.
  • Reach out and respond to the needs of our downtown Nashville community and the world.
  • Grow in faith through Lutheran worship and fellowship.
  • Develop, care for, and share our gifts and resources.
