STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

 

The Word of God is at the foundation of all we do.

We welcome and equip people to follow Christ and live authentic faith.

We are a family that demonstrates our faith in Christ

by the way we love, support, and teach one another.

 

Immanuel Lutheran School is aligned with the doctrine and confessions

of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

 

 

WE BELIEVE...

ž in one God in Three Persons, the Holy Trinity--Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14

ž that the Bible is God’s message to man and that it is the only source and standard of Christian teaching. 2 Tim. 3:14-17

ž that man is sinful by nature and in need of salvation. Rom. 3:23, 6:23

ž that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to be our Savior. John 3:16-17, 14:6, Rom. 5:8

ž that God provides salvation and life through faith alone in Jesus Christ. Rom. 3:28, Eph. 2:8-9

ž that God desires each Christian to respond to His love in Christ by dedicating his daily life to the glory of God. John 15:1-6

 

 

BELIEF AND PRACTICE

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.

 

 

WORKING TOGETHER

In a community of caring and committed individuals, disagreements will occasionally arise. At Immanuel we follow the directives given in Matt. 18:15-22:

 

“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.

"Then Peter came up and said to Him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
