General School Mission

"Faith Baptist Christian School (FBCS) is a ministry of Faith Baptist Church. Faith Baptist Church recognizes that all people are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and that God modeled his perfect plan of human development (to increase in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man) in His Son, Jesus (Luke 2:52). Therefore, FBCS was established as an outreach to our community, to provide an environment in which all children, regardless or race, creed or color, could develop mentally (in wisdom), physically (in stature), emotionally, socially, and spiritually (and in favor with God and man).
God tells us that students will be like their teachers (Luke 6:40). Therefore, all FBCS teachers are equipped academically (preschool teachers hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree, preferably in education and/or demonstrated exceptional ability teaching your children; kindergarten through middle school teachers hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree preferably in, but not limited to, education). Besides being academically equipped, all FBCS teachers are active members of like-minded evangelical Protestant churches and are spiritually mature with leadership abilities that allow them to motivate children to grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man.
God's word, The Holy Bible, is life's reference book, the ultimate authority for truth and the standard by which all people and all things are measured. Because all truth is God's truth, our curriculum is Biblically based and/or taught from a Biblical perspective.
Faith Baptist Christian School will give every student the following opportunities:
* to know the unconditional love of God
* to have a salvation experience
* to understand that God has a special purpose for his life
* to understand, identify, and develop a Christian worldview (as opposed to a secular worldview)
* to achieve educational excellence
* to view and treat all mankind and all creation as Jesus would view and treat them
The motto of Faith Baptist Christian School is "Growing God's Way". Our school scripture verse is "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it." (Proverbs 22:6 NIV) The vision of our church leadership and school board is that our school ministry would continue to grow God's way, looking to see where God is at work and joining Him there. We envision regular curriculum review and expansion to provide and maintain a program of both spiritual and academic excellence for all students and their families. We believe that this will result in educating our students to become excellent, productive, Christ-centered citizens of God's world, as we continue to witness and minister to the spiritual and physical needs of our community.
As part of Faith Baptist Church, the Faith Baptist Christian School operates independently of state regulation and control but will adhere to state and county health, safety and fire standards."
