Joy to you in the wonderful Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

“We exist to bring the message and example of Jesus Christ to Greater Boston and beyond.” Yes, this, our mission statement, is ambitious, and yes, we admit we will never accomplish it perfectly. But thanks be to God for nevertheless entrusting us with the keys of His Kingdom through His Holy Word in the Bible, and His precious Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

As Lutheran Christians we believe, teach and confess Christ crucified, risen, and coming again on the Last Day.  We also heed His admonition to love our neighbors as ourselves.  All this we do in an atmosphere of liturgical reverence, a high regard for His gift of music, and even a healthy sense of humor which acknowledges that we are saved by grace, not works!

Please consider your new or expanded participation in our exciting ministries located “deep” downtown in the beautiful and accessible Back Bay area of America’s most walkable city!  The volunteers and staff of First Lutheran stand ready to help you “let your light so shine before others that people will see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven” (Matthew 5:16)!

Thanks for reading this; and may God richly bless your day!

Yours for Christ and His Kingdom,
Ingo R. Dutzmann, Senior Pastor

Pastoral Epistles Study, Jan. 13 2019

In our second study of Paul’s pastoral epistles (1&2 Timothy and Titus), we examined the first chapter of 1 Timothy. In this first part of his letter to Timothy, who is in charge of the church at Ephesus, it is clear that Paul’s warning to the Ephesian elders in Acts 20 has come true – the church is plagued by […]

Pastoral Epistles Study, Jan. 6 2019

In our first study of Paul’s pastoral epistles (1&2 Timothy and Titus), we reviewed the historical background of the letters. The letters are named for their recipients, two young pastors that had helped Paul on his missionary journeys. Paul addresses each of them as his “dear son,” and both young men are mentioned elsewhere in the Bible. Timothy is mentioned […]
