Beliefs, Purpose, & Mission

Welcome to Holy Ghost Lutheran Church, from Rev. Lee Cullen.

A warm and hearty welcome! I am pleased that you have chosen to learn a bit more about Holy Ghost Lutheran Church. Below, you will read about our core beliefs, purpose, and mission as we continue to serve Monroe County.

Founded in 1844, Holy Ghost Lutheran Church is a staple in our community, and will be for many years to come. Please join us at a service at 9am on Sundays, or reach out to our offices to meet with me in person.

We believe, teach, and confess…

One God who has revealed himself in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The three historical and ecumenical creeds of Christendom: Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian.
That on account of humankind’s fall into sin that all people are born sinful and are under the power of the devil until Christ claims them as his own in Holy Baptism.
When the divinely inspired word of God accompanies ordinary water, saving-faith is created in the heart of the baptized.
When the divinely inspired word of God accompanies ordinary bread and wine, an unfathomable miracle occurs by which the real and physical presence of Christ’s flesh and blood become present for the faithful baptized, who receive forgiveness of their sins, life, and salvation.
That Jesus Christ was crucified, died, and rose again for the salvation of all humankind.
Jesus will one day return to judge the living and the dead whose kingdom will have no end.
That we are saved solely by God’s grace received as divine gift.

God’s blessings to our newly Confirmed!

 Our mission is to give children the education they need to grow academically and spiritually as good Christian citizens. With that goal firmly in mind, we strive to provide a quality educational program to motivate and challenge each student, while providing for individual differences and students with special needs.


We are a community of believers in Jesus Christ who gather regularly to receive God’s grace through the blessed sacraments gifted to the one holy Christian and apostolic church. Washed, clothed, and fed with God’s word, we are called and equipped to be salt and light to the world.

COVID-19 School Start

As required by the State of Michigan, Holy Ghost Lutheran School is posting our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan for re-opening the school in Phases 4 and 5.
In the event the State of Michigan reverts to Phase 3, Holy Ghost Lutheran School anticipates the State would impose restrictions that would return the school to a virtual model.

Sanitation and Mitigation Plans remain in place as we plan for the spiritual and physical well being of our children, families, and staff for the 2022-2023 School Year. For more information contact the Office.
