School Mission & Philosophy

Our Mission

The purpose of Immanuel Lutheran School is for the students to have true faith in the Triune God through the power of the Holy Spirit each student would know and love Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and would integrate His love and purpose into their lives.

Our Philosophy

Immanuel’s philosophy drawn from scripture is to train up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord so that he/she will grow and remain with Christ. As guided by the Holy Spirit, our school – with the church and parents cooperating as a body of Christ – strives to educate every child to be an academically successful student, a socially responsible citizen, and a Christian witness to his/her fellow human beings.

Our school is an important ministry of our congregation and helps fulfill each of the congregation’s five functions: education, worship, evangelism, service, and fellowship.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Immanuel Lutheran School is to draw families closer to the person of Jesus Christ and assure them of his gifts, namely, the abundance of life on earth and the endless life in heaven.

CREDO OF IMMANUEL LUTHERAN SCHOOL

We believe that Christian education is commanded by God to the church through the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:18-19)

We believe that Christian education is powered by the Holy Spirit and has God’s promises for success.
(Proverbs 22:6, Matthew 28:20)

We believe that Christian education is commanded by God to the Christian home and is primarily the responsibility of the parents. (Deuteronomy 6:6, 7)

We believe that Christian education must prepare God’s children to worship the Triune God, to proclaim the saving grace of Jesus Christ, to serve God and people throughout their lives, and to fellowship with one another.

We believe that a Christian education must consist of a general education encompassing all of God’s creation and all phases of the child’s life.

We believe that the work of Christian education within a parish rests upon the entire congregation. The congregation not only provides the means to create and maintain agencies for Christian education within its bounds, but it also assumes the responsibility for their conduct.

We believe that Immanuel Lutheran School must be committed to provide for the educational requirements of the state, of the local school districts, and of area Lutheran high schools.
