There is so much for families to love about living in Buncombe County. However, even though we have excellent public institutions, many parents want to make sure their students develop a Christian worldview. Public schools will not emphasize viewing the world through a Biblical lens.
Here is how Emmanuel Lutheran School, a private Christian institution in west Asheville, helps students gain a Christian worldview.
Our statement of purpose:
“Emmanuel Lutheran School provides an academically challenging, Christ-centered education in a caring environment. Our mission is to prepare children For Today, For Tomorrow, Forever.”
A significant part of preparing students for today, tomorrow, and forever is helping them develop a Christian worldview.
“A worldview is a collection of attitudes, values, stories, and expectations about the world around us, which inform our every thought and action. Worldview is expressed in ethics, religion, philosophy, scientific beliefs, and so on (Sire, 2004).”
A Christian worldview is a way of viewing the world through the lens of the central truths of Scripture.

If you want your child to experience a Christian education that helps them develop a biblical worldview, we would love to talk with you further.
Contact us today for more information and to take a tour of our school. We would be happy to answer your questions and dive deeper into how we help each child grow in their understanding of Scripture and the gospel.
