Jesus says in Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The mission statement of Immanuel Lutheran School: “We teach, proclaim, and live Christ in all things”
The purpose of Immanuel Lutheran School (ILS), as a part of the ministry of our congregation, is to proclaim and show the message of God’s love to children of our congregation and community so that they might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
Our purpose is also to nurture their Christian faith and equip them for living and serving as disciples of Jesus Christ. Each child and family, therefore, is an opportunity for mission in response to God’s command to “teach all nations.”
Ministry and Vision
The ministry of ILS is to plan and carry out programs and activities that are guided by its purpose of teaching the Christian faith and serving the needs of its students and families. More specifically, teachers will strive to integrate the faith into all areas of learning. God’s Word will be applied to students’ lives through a balanced use of Law and Gospel. Christian teachers will model their faith as they serve students and their families. The school’s program will provide opportunities for students to support and share their faith through worship, fellowship, and by witnessing to each other and the community.
