Who We Are

Our Mission

Our Mission is to reach the lost with the saving Gospel of Christ and equip the saved for a life of Christian service. (Matt. 28:19-20; Eph, 2:8-9)

A Strong Foundation and A History of Faith

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) is a denomination that confesses the historic, orthodox Christian faith, a faith built on “the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone” (Eph. 2:20).

Immanuel Lutheran Church in Columbus, Nebraska, was chartered in 1883 and is a member of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. The church's 1,400+ members view the Bible as the true and inspired Word of God and believe that salvation is by God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ.

Worship Services

Immanuel offers three worship services each weekend, including contemporary and traditional services.

School and Daycare

Christ-centered education is provided in the elementary school (K-8), pre-school, and two daycare operations.

Giving Back

Immanuel tithes its general fund to support the worldwide mission activities of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Several mission trips to foreign countries have been sponsored by individual members and support from the "Endowment Fund." Immanuel offers support for the local Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, Harbor of Hope, and other community service activities. Members are encouraged to see themselves as missionaries and the community as a mission field.

Family Life Center

The Immanuel Family Life Center (FLC), just east of the church, provides the setting for contemporary worship services, Confirmation and Bible classes, and houses the downtown daycare operation. Facilities for small meetings to large banquets are available for Immanuel member use. For more information contact the church office.
