ABOUT FBCS

IMG_3647First Baptist Church School (FBCS) & Early Education Center (EEC) was established by Brenham’s First Baptist Church in 1977 and is open to children of all faiths.

The school is dedicated to excellence in academics and to providing a lovingly structured Christian environment.  Our philosophy is based on Proverbs 22:6:

“Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

 

MISSION STATEMENT

First Baptist Church School is dedicated to providing a Christ-centered environment with an emphasis on academic excellence, missions, and discipleship.

Several times throughout the year all of our school children have the opportunity to give to missions.  FBCS has a heart for missions and takes pleasure in teaching the students to have a servant’s heart by showing Jesus’ love while joyfully participating in mission projects.

 

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15; II Peter 1:21).

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith are we saved (John 3:16 – 19; 5:24; Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).

PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

We follow a four-fold purpose in our school program.

We believe that as Christian educators we have a responsibility to give the students entrusted to our care an excellent education.  We accomplish this through an established curriculum based on traditional academic standards taught by diligent, qualified instructors. Our staff undergoes extensive reference and background checks. The entire staff of the school and EEC is required to have a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education each year, and must keep CPR and First Aid validated.

In addition to the academic curriculum, our school offers Athletics, Computer, Music, P.E. and Spanish classes to students in the elementary grades.

“Hark unto me, O ye children, for blessed are they that keep my ways.  Hear instruction, and be wise and refuse it not.”  Proverbs 8:32-33.

PHYSICAL

Our students, Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade, enjoy an active physical education program.  In our elementary grades the students are trained to exercise all of their muscles through the use of fun games, exercise, and sports’ skills.  Motor development and coordination are stressed with our preschool students.

Upper elementary students can also participate in team athletics.  This activity allows our students to further develop their physical capabilities as well as learning to compete and grow as a Christian athlete.

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own; you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body”.  I Corinthians 6:19-20.

EMOTIONAL

The key ingredient found in our school faculty and staff is a strong commitment to our Christian school ministry and genuine love and concern for teaching boys and girls—academically and spiritually—including their emotional welfare.  Our staff takes a special interest in each child and strive to motivate that child toward his or her highest potential.  Our students are remembered daily in prayer.

“All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.”

Isaiah 54:13

SPIRITUAL

Chapel time is an important part of the spiritual growth of our students.  Students learn Bible stories, songs, scripture verses, and participate in prayer time.  Each grade also has a Bible lesson as part of their curriculum.

Baptist doctrine is not taught in our school, but dependence upon and love for God is encouraged.  Growth toward a personal relationship with God through the Savior, Jesus Christ, is nurtured.

Parents are welcome to attend a chapel service with their children.  Please try to arrive prior to the 8:15 chapel start time.  Chapel attendance is a requirement for students.

“Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children and forbid them not to come to me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’”

Matthew 19:14
