Our Foundation
Our Lutheran School stands upon the foundation of God’s inspired and inerrant Word as revealed in the Holy Bible. The foundation of our faith is Jesus Christ. We believe that all people are sinners and deserve eternal death. (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23). But, God in His love sent His son Jesus Christ to save us from our sins. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

St. Matthew's Lutheran School subscribes to the beliefs detailed in the publication “This We Believe” compiled by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), which can be found on the website

Key Focus
St. Matthew's Lutheran School exists to help carry out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) of our Lord through formal Christian education. God says to parents, "bring up [your children] in the training and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4)." Jesus also said to the church, "Feed my lambs (John 21:15)."

Christ-Centered Communication
Christian Education is a partnership among parents & teachers. That partnership includes parents and teachers working together under God's grace. The joys, challenges, and concerns that arise are shared in light of the Christ-centered partnership we have a God's people.
