OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Fourth Baptist Christian School, as a ministry of Fourth Baptist Church, is committed to the development of a student’s spiritual life in Jesus Christ, while pursuing academic excellence in a manner which honors and glorifies God, based on the only infallible Word, the Bible.
The ultimate goal and purpose of Fourth Baptist Christian School is to lead boys and girls to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and then train them in the knowledge of God, the Christian way of life, and offer them an excellent education. It is our desire to work with parents in bringing the child up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, thus equipping him/her to identify, evaluate, and relate properly to life’s problems. We exist to provide a Christ-based education for students in our church, as well as those in our community who see the need for Christian education.
The mission of FBCS is to reproduce the image of Christ in the saved student, resulting in the student’s godliness of character and action. This is accomplished in two stages. The first step is conversion. The second step is Christian character development. Our mission is reflected in our admissions policy, staff placement, choice of curriculum, music, sports, library, standard of conduct and discipline. It is involved in every area of school life.
The mission of FBCS is to glorify God. This includes aid and assistance to parents in fulfilling their obligation to teach and train their children according to God’s Word. The example of Jesus is set forth in Luke 2:52: “Jesus grew in wisdom [intellectually], stature [physically], and in favor with God [spiritually], and man [socially].”
God’s purpose and plan for each child is also the desire and design of FBCS for the fullest development of the student. We believe that academic excellence must be a priority in the lives of our students.
God has promised the believer that He will “teach us all things,” (John 14:26). Therefore, we must learn these things and do them, for this is true education.
Fourth Baptist Christian School places great emphasis upon the greatness of America’s heritage and the sacrifice of its heroes. America is a republic which guarantees liberty to educate our children and freedom to worship God as we choose. We teach the Biblical truths of self-discipline, respect for those in authority, and obedience to the law.
We strive for a school climate that is friendly, relaxed, and conducive to good education. The school has an emphasis on academics, spiritual values, patriotism, family life, and respect for authority.
