WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

We believe that:

The canonical books of the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible is the true Word of God, without error or contradiction and is the final authority in all matters of faith and life. (John 20:31, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)


The Confessional Writings of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as contained in the Book of Concord are the true and genuine exposition of the Word of God.

There is only one true God, who reveals himself as Father (Creator), Son (Redeemer), and Holy Spirit (Sanctifier). (Ephesians 4:4-6)

All people are conceived and born sinful. Because of their sin they are subject to eternal death. Man is incapable of saving himself through good works. (Ecclesiastes 7:20, Ephesians 2:1, 1 John 1:8)

Because of the unconditional love and mercy of God the Father, our salvation has been purchased through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are saved  by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. (John 3:16, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Colossians 1:13-14, Ephesians 2:8-9)

Faith in Jesus Christ comes by the power of the Holy Spirit as He works through the means of grace – His Word and the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper – through which the blessings and benefits of Jesus’ saving death and resurrection, namely the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation are offered to us. (Romans 10:17, Titus 3:5, Matthew 26:27-28)

Good works and holy Christian living are the fruit of faith in Christ, not the cause of faith or salvation. (John 15:5, Ephesians 2:8-10)

Christians are called to live for Jesus, compelling us to integrate our faith in all aspects of life.  In service to our Lord, our primary mission is making disciples of every nation by bearing witness to Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:15, Matthew 28:19, 1 Timothy 2:4)

CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW

Our Christian beliefs and principles permeate everything we do at Milwaukee Lutheran - from our required religion courses and chapel services to our curriculum and co-curricular programs. Administrators, teachers, advisors, and coaches seek opportunities to share the presence and power of Jesus Christ every day at our school. In return, MLHS students are encouraged to stand out and be different because of who they represent as chosen children of God.

Part of our mission statement indicates that we prepare students for life from a “Christian worldview”. This means that our faculty teaches God’s truth found in the Bible. We look at every subject in school – and every topic in life – through God’s perspective. A Christian worldview explains reality and how to live through the lens of the Bible.

What this requires is a sense of humility. Rather than approaching any subject with our point of view as the starting point, we ask ourselves, “what does God have to say about this topic?” That’s hard to do in today’s culture and age of “information.”

Even if the answer is not explicitly discussed or found in the Bible, chances are very good that Christian leaders have expounded upon the topic and have tied their thinking back to the Bible, cross-referencing multiple biblical books, chapters and verses. This follows an essential Lutheran tenet of allowing scripture to interpret scripture, i.e. sola scriptura (Scripture alone).
