Mission / Philosophy

Mission Statement of Abiding Savior Lutheran Church and School:

The mission of Abiding Savior Lutheran School is to communicate Christ’s love to everyone, everywhere, and our love for Him.

Philosophy of Abiding Savior Lutheran School

Abiding Savior Lutheran School exists as an element of the congregation’s over-all gospel mission. Therefore, the philosophy of the school is based upon our belief in God’s call to teach, witness and serve.

 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Our purpose is to share the Gospel and equip students to be responsible disciples, trusting in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and prepared to live successfully as Christian leaders and servants in our nation and the world. The Word of God is taught, students learn effective decision-making skills, and Christian character traits are modeled, and applied. We want each student to acquire a sense of value as a redeemed child of God, a respect for others, and a love of learning.

We believe that children learn in diverse ways. Therefore, in order to promote academic success, at Abiding Savior we implement a variety of positive instructional models and developmentally appropriate techniques to meet the needs of individuals. We are committed to:

– Enabling and inspiring students to become life-long learners.

– Utilizing academic goals as building blocks toward future learning.

– Developing the whole person – spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally, physically, and aesthetically.

– Providing a variety of opportunities for children to reach their potentials.

– Equipping and motivating children to use their God-given gifts in His service and to tell others about Him.

Recognizing that the home is the primary center of student learning and living, we believe that the highest and most enduring benefits are achieved when parents, their children, and the school are devoted to the same ideals of Christian faith and life and work together as partners to accomplish them.
