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.
Religious Connection, Doctrine, and Practice
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 of the world's redemption; and brings people of 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.
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.
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 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 His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
