Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church has established a Christian day school in its midst with the thought of carrying out a program of unified Christian training. In the interest of such Christian training, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is ready to take the full responsibility of also offering what our government requires in the way of elementary education. Such Christian training aims to build up the individual child in Christian faith and thereby proposes also to motivate the child to live as a Christian in all of his present and future activities and relationships of life. The members of Good Shepherd carry out such Christian education with the conviction that in the Holy Scriptures, as God's inspired and inerrant Word, we have an infallible norm and guide for everything that pertains to Christian faith and life.
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is active in this educational effort because it is convinced that through the program of Christian education it is providing faithfully for the eternal welfare of its children and at the same time supplying them with the one effective motivation for using their knowledge, their skills, and their developed talents in this life to God's glory and for the service of their fellowmen.
As a contribution to good citizenship and its specific responsibilities and obligations, our Christian day school, on the basis of God's Word, strives to implant in our children a high esteem for all governmental authority as being ordained by God. Out of thankful love for their God and Savior, which the Gospel that is taught in our school inspires, children are constrained to serve and obey their government and to assist it in every way in carrying out its vital function of maintaining peace, law, and order.
