Who Are We?

Students are encouraged to learn academically as well as spiritually in the following ways: Inquiry, Growth & Achievement, Honor & Service, and Leadership.

It is our desire that students understand that they are created by a loving God and made in His image. We were created to be people that think deeply and broadly about life with wholehearted service to God. This should motivate excellence in developing our skills and abilities.

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”  Colossians 3:17

Inquiry

We want our students to ask questions and seek out answers through their search and exploration of resources including God’s Word. We seek to understand before being understood. When we see a problem, we approach it with zest and optimism so that we may find a solution.

GROWTH & ACHIEVEMENT

Students are challenged to strive for academic excellence and to leverage their strengths. Through studying Bible, we encourage students to be leaders who are intent on making a difference within their school, family, and community.

HONOR & SERVICE

Students are encouraged to take part in opportunities to serve the community and the less advantaged in our area. We strive to teach the importance of leaving places better than they are found. This means that we give when we are needed, we give back to those who have helped us, and we honor each other’s perspectives and experiences.

LEADERSHIP

Students are trained to be leaders who consistently do the right thing and exhibit Christ-likeness. They find opportunities to take responsibility for themselves and their community through collection of offerings and participation in fundraisers that give back to those in need within our community and around the world.

What Makes Us Distinctive?

What sets our school apart from other schools is that FBCS is a nurturing, Christ-centered program, small and suitable to helping every child achieve his or her God-given potential. Our desire is that our students “grow in wisdom, stature and favor with both God and man.” Our fully biblically integrated curriculum and academics are every bit as rigorous as the best schools in Northwest Arkansas, but our mission is that our students develop a heart for serving others so that they are equipped with every tool to engage their community with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Staff and student relationships are vitally important to us. Joining our school family is a partnership where every child and family is connected to a group of like-minded believers creating long-lasting relationships.

 

Diversity

First Baptist Christian School values and cherishes the differences of every student, family, and faculty member. Diversity in our student body, families, and faculty develops thinking that values alternative viewpoints and is sensitive to ethnic backgrounds, feelings, individual physical characteristics of others, as well as God-given talents and abilities.

The First Baptist Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Embracing and capitalizing on the differences God has created in all of us enhances our school and church community at FBCS.  Diversity is God’s gift and tool given to people that they might know Him better and experience life as He designed it. We look to His Word for the basis and context of the meaning of diversity to define the different parameters of gender, race, age, culture and economic status.

Regarding gender and race, We are ALL created in the image of God. Genesis 1: 27 “And God created man in his own image… Male and female he created them.”

Regarding age, We are created for HIS purpose and glory. Psalm 139:13-14 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Regarding one’s culture, God shows no partiality. Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Acts 17:26-27 “And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us.”

Regarding economic status, Mark 12:41-44 refers to the stewardship responsibility associated with the material wealth and possessions that He provides to each person. God owns it all!

Our Mission

The mission of First Baptist Christian School is for our students to pursue academic and spiritual excellence while growing in the grace of God’s Word and to engage others in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
