Our Philosophy

“Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit; we desire to develop and maintain those temples” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). At Grace Lutheran, we believe that participation in athletics is a means to that end; therefore, we engage in athletics competition for the following reasons:

  • To allow students to develop their athletic skills to the fullest using the talents which God has blessed them with
  • To promote Christian sportsmanship and fellowship among all concerned (teammates, opponents, referees, coaches, fans, and so forth)
  • To promote respect for and acceptance of authority
  • To provide opportunity for cooperation with other individuals in a team effort
  • To enjoy participation in athletics now and in the future
  • To learn self-control in emotional situations
  • To learn acceptance of victory and defeat
