Heartland Lutheran Core Values

Christ Centered: Heartland Lutheran High School provides opportunities to individuals to grow and live out in their faith through instruction in God’s Word directly and as the Word of God permeates into everything we do.

“… to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:12-13

Christian Love: Heartland Lutheran High School desires to do everything out of Christian love for the overall welfare of our students, families, faculty, staff, and the entire Red Hornet Family.  Our love for others is a reflection of Christ’s love (agape - sacrificial) for us.

“By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” 1 John 3:16

Forgiveness/Discipline: Heartland Lutheran High School provides an atmosphere where students, faculty, staff, and families forgive and are forgiven as simultaneous saints and sinners while being held accountable for their actions.  In all situations God’s gift of Law and Gospel are applied.

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32

Matthew 18


Integrity: Heartland Lutheran High School challenges its students, faculty, staff, and families not just to do what is right but to be men and women who model themselves after King David, to be men and women after God’s own heart.  We have an unchanging God and we desire to have an unchanging desire to follow God’s Word.

“Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8


Excellence: Heartland Lutheran High School provides an environment of excellence in all that we do. We expect our students, faculty, and staff’s best. We encourage and teach our students to be both life-long learners and leaders in their church, community, and world.

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24


Service: Heartland Lutheran High School desires to serve its students, families, faculty, and staff while having them also serve as resources to the association, the Red Hornet Family, the community that surrounds us and the world in order to show the light and love of Christ to those in need.

“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10


Leadership: Heartland Lutheran High School provides opportunities for students to learn and practice leadership in order to become the next generation of leaders for the Church and world.

“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14


Partnership: Heartland Lutheran High School strives to partner with the families, association churches, and the community to provide students with the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, and socially, while being able to also serve those families, churches, and members of the community in need.

“Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
