Welcome to Immanuel Lutheran School in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Lutheran schools touch lives by sharing Jesus Christ with students and families. God’s Word is taught, and the principles of God’s love are shared. Under God’s blessing, we eagerly anticipate each year of blessings of spiritual and academic growth as we share the caring Christ.
God’s Word gives us ample direction as to the purpose of the ministry of our church and school.
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
II Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
I John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love
God, and keep His commandments.
We eagerly look forward to each school year as it gives us the opportunity, on a regular basis, to proclaim the Gospel which is our responsibility, privilege and joy.
The mission of Immanuel Lutheran School is to assist parents by providing a Christ-centered comprehensive education so that students live a life of service to God.
- the purpose of Christian education is to provide quality education founded in God’s Word and guided by the Holy Spirit to cultivate Christian values. We believe marriage means uniting one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2:18-25) and God forbids intimate sexual activity outside of a marriage between a man a woman.
- all persons are sinful and are in need of renewal by Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament.
- by instruction in God’s Word, the Christian child learns to know the relationship he/she has with God in Jesus Christ and receives strengthening for his/her faith and life through that instruction. God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen. 2:18-25). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of God’s creative work.
- each child is a redeemed child of God through faith in Christ and because of this the Word of God is to be interwoven through the entire education of the child. In keeping with Scriptures, we believe life is sacred and man was created in God’s image. For that reason, human life is inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. Therefore, we are called to defend, protect, and value all human life (Ps. 139).
