El Vista Baptist Academy is our Christian Day School which offers instruction in K-4 through 7th grade.
Since 1981, we have had the privilege and responsibility of ministering through the El Vista Baptist Academy.
Deuteronomy 6:4ff and Ephesians 6:4 positively declare the Christian's duty to train our children in the ways of the Lord.
Psalm 1 declares the negative, that we are not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly.
The Faith Promise Plan for Missionary Giving is how El Vista supports missionaries at home and around the world.
Through generous giving, we currently help support missionaries in places such as Togo, Mongolia, Canada, Haiti, Mexico, Navajo, Zambia, and several others.
We also support the Bible Tracts ministry, Jewish Evangelism, and our Bible College students.
Frequent missionary speakers and an annual Missionary Conference in October keep our hearts concerned for the lost around the world.
