Philosophy:


LIFE! Lutheran School, a ministry of participating Lutheran congregations, is established as a Lutheran Christian school for the purpose of academic and spiritual instruction grounded in scriptural truth as understood from a Lutheran perspective.

Through our Lord’s Word and the power of His Holy Spirit, we nurture and strengthen children in their relationship with the only true God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We teach God’s law, which expresses His expectations for us and our need for the Savior; and the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, which teaches His love and forgiveness for us. We daily share faith in Jesus Christ as a free gift of the Holy Spirit, and His forgiveness of sin as the only means of salvation.

We believe that God is the center of all life and living. Out of this conviction, we provide high quality educational experiences that nurture children’s growth in all areas: Spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional. Our school creates an atmosphere, in which children are valued and respected, are taught to respect and live peaceably with others, and are inspired to extend their vision and love beyond themselves.

LIFE! Lutheran School works together with churches and families to create the most effective learning environment for discovering the truth of God’s Word, and for experiencing and preparing for Christian living. We believe that this Christian community equips our children to become productive, positive contributors to their family, church and society. We teach children to find in their present and future lives opportunities to communicate God’s love in word and deed. By the grace of God, in Christ, we will strive to do all things to glorify God.

Christian Beliefs

With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

Grace Alone

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

Faith Alone

By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

Scripture Alone

The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.

Questions

How can LIFE! Lutheran School offer education that is both "high quality" and "affordable"?

LIFE! Lutheran School has been supported financially by four churches as well as many individuals and families for thirty years. These churches and individuals contribute to LIFE! Lutheran School out of a commitment to their Lord, Jesus. In essence, they have said, “Here is part of the means, now tell families about God’s love for them as you give their children a quality education.”

Are only Lutherans eligible?

No. We accept members of other churches and also children whose families do not attend church. This is one of the purposes for maintaining Lutheran schools; Sharing the story of Jesus with families who come to us for a superior education.
