Welcome to First Lutheran Church. Here we stand on the foundation of Jesus Christ and His Word. We are a historic congregation with worship, study, and life together that treasure the truth and beauty of Biblical Lutheran theology and the culture of the Reformation Era as well as doctrinally pure expressions of the Christian faith and life from around the globe and throughout history. First Lutheran has been serving and worshiping in the Knoxville community since 1869. Come to First Lutheran Church to receive and serve our God and our neighbors in need.

In Christ’s service,

Rev. Paul Bushur, Pastor
