In obedience to Christ's command to make disciples, at Hope Lutheran School we endeavor to help children know Jesus as their Savior, to serve God and one another in their daily living, and to fully develop and use the abilities God has given them.
Hope's mission is to teach God's Word and share Christ's love with all.
Hope Lutheran is a part of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). The LCMS is a mission-oriented and Bible-based denomination that confesses the historic, orthodox Christian faith in the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; a faith built on..., "the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone" (Eph. 2:20). With the Universal Christian Church, the LCMS teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God, who created all that exists; became man to suffer, die, and rise again for the world's redemption; and brings people to faith and new life through His Word and Sacraments. We believe, without reservation, that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and practice.
A sinner is justified by grace alone (sola gratia) through faith alone (sola fide) for the sake of Christ alone (solus Christus), a truth revealed to us in Scripture alone (sola Scriptura).
There is nothing in us and nothing we do that moves God to forgive us. God is gracious to us because of Jesus Christ and because of Him alone.
By His suffering and death, as the substitute for all people, Jesus Christ, our Lord, purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for all. 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.
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and the Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for all people.
