Statement of Beliefs for Emmaus Lutheran School and Preschool

Emmaus Lutheran School and Preschool uses the standards and beliefs set forth by thy Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

We want to ensure that current and prospective families have a clear understanding of what we         believe, and what will be taught in our classes.

Understand that you do not have to have the same beliefs, but that our ideals will not be compromised in our curriculum and classrooms.

 

Dear Parents: Thank you for your interest in our school. We have adopted an admissions policy that opens the school to families who are like-minded spiritually, who are supportive of our philosophy, objectives, and standards of education, and whose children meet our enrollment standards. Our purpose is to serve families who desire not simply a private education, but a distinctively Christian education for their children. Before applying for admission to our school, please read the “Statement of Beliefs” sheet provided below. This school unashamedly believes, teaches, and practices the lordship of Jesus Christ and acknowledges the authority of God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures, without reservation. For example, if a question regarding biblical lifestyles arises in chapel or your child’s classroom, the teacher will answer from a biblical viewpoint consistent with our mission and belief statement.

If your beliefs and lifestyle choices are not in agreement with our beliefs, the teacher’s answer may create conflict in your child’s heart and mind. Biblical principles are integrated into every subject taught at our school. Our staff is committed not only to academic excellence, but also to teaching students how to apply the truths of God’s Word to every aspect of life. If you are in agreement with the teachings of God’s Word, this school will complement the beliefs and ideals your child is taught at home.   We look forward to partnering with you to educate your child in God’s truth.
