What We Believe
Philosophy of Education
It is the philosophy of Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School that the education provided its students will be, above all else, Christ-centered and Christian-based. Christian education is an outgrowth of the “Great Commission”, which Christ has given to His church. Each child is a gift from God, and should be educated in a loving but disciplined Christian environment.
The Christian school serves as a partner with parents, assisting them in the Christian education of their children, a task recognized as the parent’s primary responsibility. The standard of measurement in defining our school will be the Word of God and the doctrines, teachings and practices of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod as drawn from that Word.
Our goal is to prepare students for both eternal life and life in this world. Recognizing that 98% of our students matriculate at either two-year or four-year colleges, Lincoln Lutheran will provide an excellent, Christ-centered college preparatory education, ensuring our students are ready for their post-high school education.
The Purpose of Belief Statements
Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School is a Christian school. It was established by Lincoln area Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod churches in an effort to provide a loving environment where the Gospel will be taught and lived in all curricular and extra-curricular situations, enabling students to live the Christian life now and through eternity.
Our standards are not those of this world. They are in harmony with Scripture, and designed as a reflection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. These guidelines were designed through the direction of the Holy Spirit knowing that human reasoning and intellect will only mislead us.
