About Us

Messiah Lutheran Classical Academy

MLCA is a private school located in Keller, Texas, serving the surrounding area by providing a classical education with a Christian worldview to all students.

We offer our students a delightfully rigorous classical education.  From the beginning, our students are involved in a “conversation” with history and our western heritage.  All subjects are taught with a distinctly Christian worldview, and the curriculum is designed to inspire a life-long love of learning in our students.

MLCA is a ministry of Messiah Lutheran Church, a member of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. As such, God’s love for us in Christ Jesus permeates all we do.

Our teachings can be summed up in one phrase:
Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

GRACE ALONE

God created a perfect world and two people, Adam and Eve, without sin. When they, in pride, disobeyed God’s command, they brought death and corruption to all of mankind and all of creation (Genesis 1 – 3). Consequently, all people are sinners, accountable from birth for the sin they are born in and the sins they commit, and the wages of that sin is death (John 3:5-6, Romans 3:9-10, Romans 6:23). None of us are righteous, and none of us deserve God’s kindness, but God, in His mercy, sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to save the lost (Romans 3:10- 18). We are chosen by Him, not out of merit, but solely out of grace.

FAITH ALONE

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, true God and true man, lived a sinless life in our stead (Galatians 4:4-5). On the cross, He took upon Himself the sins of the world, made full payment for them, and won forgiveness for all (Isaiah 53:4-5, John 1:1-14, Romans 5:19, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 2:24). All those who believe in Him will receive eternal life (John 3:16). This life is a gift of God: we cannot earn it by performing good works or living our lives in a certain way. It comes only through faith in Christ (Romans 5:6-8, Romans 3:23-24, Ephesians 2:8-9).

SCRIPTURE ALONE

The Bible is the Word of God. God the Holy Spirit gave to His chosen writers the words they were to write, thus making the Bible God’s own Word and the Truth, without error. This applies to everything written in Scriptures, and it is thus the sole rule and norm for all our doctrine (2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 Corinthians 2:13). Jesus, the Savior of the world, is the heart and center of the Holy Scriptures. Through this Word, the Holy Spirit brings forth faith (John 5:39, John 20:31, Acts 10:43, Romans 10:17, 2 Timothy 3:15).
