Our Beliefs

What We Believe  

The Lutheran belief of salvation is based on Eph. 2:8-9. "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast."

• That the true God is the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

• That the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only source of our teaching and faith.

• That every person is by nature sinful and in need of knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for forgiveness and eternal life.

• That God loved the world so much He sent His Son to suffer and die in our place for the forgiveness of our sins and to rise again to be our Savior  sharing eternal life with all believers.

• That God forgives and saves all who know Jesus as their Lord and Savior by faith connected to Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit working this faith in us.

• That Holy Baptism is intended for old and young alike. Through it, God washes away our sins and adopts us into His family, the church.

• That in Holy Communion we receive the Body and Blood of the Living Christ along with the bread and wine, for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of faith.

• That out of love for God and with His help, we seek to live a God pleasing life.

• That those who die in Christ enter heaven at the time of death.

• That at His second coming, Christ will raise up all the dead and judge all people. 


Christian beliefs, as understood and listed above pervade everything that is done at Trinity Lutheran School.  Christian instruction is not only carried out formally, but is integrated into the study of every subject. Students are immersed in a Christian atmosphere, surrounded by teachers, administrator, pastor, and staff members who strive to have their very presence be a testimony to the Christian faith and the distinctively Lutheran manner of expressing that faith. We know that each of us sins daily, that we have a sincere need to repent of those sins, and that we need to be reconciled with God and with one another. We know that Jesus Christ died and rose again to forgive all sins. Not one of us is better than another. This said, we recognize there are sins that are more obvious than others. We teach that when obvious sins are not dealt with in a Scriptural manner (repentance & forgiveness) they can seriously damage the Christian community. The LC-MS is a creed based church body with definite beliefs on many points of Christian faith. For instance, we affirm; the sanctity of human life from conception, the importance of a stable family life, faithfulness in marriage, and abstention from those things which would harm our physical bodies. We also recognize that cohabitation, homosexual relations, and sexual relations outside the marital relationship are opposed to the Word of God. We will not shy away from any of these teachings. Nor will we deny admission as a result of these sins. This is place where all sinners can find relief. At Trinity Lutheran School we expect that the families of our students will not act in a way that is contrary to, or disrupts the teachings of this school in matters of religious faith and personal conduct. Family members are not required to believe or confess the teachings or beliefs of the LCMS. However, family members may not act in a way that may negatively affect the school, promote beliefs that are contrary to those of the LCMS, or otherwise weaken or undermine the Christian atmosphere at the school.
