Our Mission & Vision.

The current First Parish in Lincoln resulted from a 1942 merger of Lincoln’s Congregational and Unitarian churches.  That merger is reflected in Christian and Humanist elements of our Sunday services, and also in our intent to be a “big tent” spiritual home for persons of all faith backgrounds.

Our historic roots are quite visible each Sunday as the congregation recites a Covenant and a Call to Ministry.

First Parish’s statement of Values, Mission, and Vision complements and elaborates on the core concepts of the Covenant and Call to Ministry in a way that reflects our big spiritual tent.   This statement, which describes what FPL tries to do and hopes to be, can be found on our Mission & Vision page here, or using the button below.
