St. Martin Lutheran School Philosophy
We believe that Christian education is a lifelong process which is rooted in the true Word of God. We believe that we must teach about His love and His creation. We believe that the uniqueness of our Christian Education lies in our need to integrate our faith into all the fundamental areas of learning.
What We Believe About God
We believe that God is the Triune God: the Father, who creates; the Son, who redeems; and the Holy Spirit, who sanctifies. We believe that God is love and that He shows this love by giving us faith through grace.
What We Believe About Man
We believe that man is God’s foremost creation but set apart from God by sin. Through Holy Baptism, we become God’s children so that man can live for God and have the assurance of eternal life.
What We Believe About How We Teach
We believe in fostering Christ-centered attitudes in the developmental learning process: mentally, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We believe that the unique Child of God is nurtured by the Christian example of parents, teachers, and the church community. We believe that quality education is a dynamic process of growth and that the method of education and instruction should remain flexible to meet the demands of a changing society.
What We Believe About What We Teach
We believe that what we teach should have a lifelong positive effect on our relationship with God and fellow man. This effect should motivate us to use our God-given talents to our fullest potential so that we can share the caring Christ. Worshipping our Lord together with fellow Christians is a vital part of spiritual growth. Through God’s Word and sacraments the Holy Spirit gives the gifts of faith in Christ, forgiveness of sins, and eternal life. As proponents of Christian Education, the School Board and the Board of Lay Ministry of St. Martin Lutheran Church expect our families to attend Church faithfully. We believe the following policy will further Christ’s Mission.
St. Martin School is mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all. The school admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
