Arcadia First Baptist Christian School

Tel: (409)925-2825
Grades: PK - 8 | 270 students
The Bible teaches us that all learning, knowledge, and wisdom begins with a holy reverence for God (Proverbs 9:10).  As we reverence God, we begin to learn about God's creation around us and His plan for our lives.  God created us to be learners.  The Bible encourages us to always be learning and growing in our knowledge and wisdom.  The Arcadia First Baptist Christian School seeks to advance learning, knowledge, and wisdom as we instill Christian values and academic excellence into the lives of our students.  What a great joy it is for us here at AFBCS to seek to present Jesus Christ to students so that they may be drawn to Him through ministry, discipleship, and education and to encourage them through fellowship in Christ.  We take this responsibility very seriously and look forward to what God is going to do through us and with us to advance His kingdom through the Arcadia First Baptist Christian School.  Dr.
Rick Smith, Senior Pastor, Administrator/Principal
