2 Pillars Church is all about the gospel ("good news") of Jesus. Everything we do centers around the good news of Jesus' life, death, resurrection, reign, and rule. The gospel is the drum we beat and the note we sound. We are all about Jesus.
We are also a church on mission which means we do not simply exist for ourselves, but rather we want others to hear the good news of Jesus, see His effect in our lives, and be drawn into the gospel of Jesus too.
2 Pillars Church was born out of a desire to see a gospel-centered, missionally-focused church in the downtown heart of Lincoln. God began stirring this desire in Pastor Todd in late 2007. In December of 2009, the Bumgarners uprooted their lives from St. Louis and moved to Lincoln to begin the hard work of starting a church from scratch.
As God was faithful, a small band of disciples began to form gathering for times of vision casting and prayer for the first four months of 2010. In May of 2010, a Commitment Phase commenced and the result was 27 adults who were willing to commit to seeing this vision take root. 2 Pillars Church officially went public on September 12, 2010 and God has been faithful to continue to establish, build, and grow His church.
In February of 2016, 2 Pillars Church sent out a group of people to plant another congregation in the northeast area of Lincoln at which time "2 Pillars Church" became one church consisting of two neighborhood congregations: 2 Pillars Church-Near South and 2 Pillars Church-Northeast.
The name, 2 Pillars, spawns out of two Old Testament passages which describe the same event: 1 Kings 7:15-22 and 2 Chronicles 3:15-17. These two passage recount the two pillars that King Solomon constructed in front of the temple, naming them Jachin and Boaz. The name Jachin means “He establishes.” The name Boaz means “in Him is strength.”
2 Pillars Church only exists because God has established it. As Jesus continues His work by His Spirit through 2 Pillars Church, this name serves as a reminder that this whole thing was brought forth by Him alone and for Him alone. As 2 Pillars Church grows and as we grow as individuals, we must always remember that our strength is in Him who created us.
Our Vision is to reach the unreached for Christ and to transform the city of Lincoln by loving God and loving people.
This is a vision that is bigger than us, but includes us.
As a church, we are partnered together on a larger scale with the Acts 29 Network as well as Converge Worldwide and The Omaha Regional Chapter of The Gospel Coalition.
