Peace Lutheran School holds firmly to the holy and inspired Word of God. Three tenants of the Lutheran faith are rooted in the Holy Scriptures and referred to as the three "solas": Sola Scriptura (scripture alone), Sola Gratia (grace alone), and Sola Fide (faith alone). Each of the three "solas" point to the same truth- salvation through faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. We believe "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 6:23). Out of love and His eternal grace, “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” (John 3:16).
