What We Believe
- We believe that a Christian school, in which every subject is taught from a Christian point of view and where the teaching reflects the spirit of Christ, can be more successful in leading children to a vital Christian life than any other agency except the Christian home.
- We believe that Word of Life Lutheran School thus supplements the religious training that the child receives at home and, in some cases, is the main source of training through which a child learns about his or her Savior.
- We believe that the Word of Life Lutheran School must serve as a mission agency in the community.
- We believe that Word of Life Lutheran School follows the directives of our Lord, “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you,” and thus makes HIM the focal point of its educational process.
- We believe that this school, in all its teachings and practices, subscribes to and supports the doctrines and doctrinal practices of the evangelical Lutheran Church, and specifically the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
- We believe that the Word of Life Lutheran School, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and viewing the student through the cross of Christ, is concerned with the child’s total needs: physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
- We believe that Word of Life Lutheran School is an agency of ministry for Ascension, Timothy and St. Lucas Lutheran congregations.
