Genuine Relationship with Jesus Christ
It is our desire that FBA graduates will have an authentic and passionate relationship with Jesus Christ (Mark 12:30). This will be manifested in a dedicated heart for God and His Word (Psalm 40:8, Colossians 3:16), a commitment to pursue an ever-maturing walk with the Lord (Philippians 3:12-16), which is characterized by a life that walks with the filling of the Spirit (Romans 15:13), and maintains a healthy prayer life (1 Peter 4:7).
Godly, Productive Leaders
Through leadership skills developed at FBA, students will be prepared to serve as examples to all believers, and to the world in general, in what they teach, how they live, in their love, their faith, and in their purity (1 Timothy 4:12). Students are thus equipped to become leaders even now while they are young but also will continue to develop leadership qualities for future endeavors in the home, in ministry, and in their careers.
An FBA graduate shall have the ability to discern truth from error in a society inundated with information. A graduate is self-motivated and inquisitive, recognizing that knowledge and wisdom are from God equipping them to be able to articulate and defend their faith. A graduate will courageously and graciously communicate a biblical perspective to the cultural issues of their day (Hebrews 5:14).
Intelligent & Effective Communicator
A graduate of First Baptist Academy will be able to intelligently and effectively communicate his or her convictions for what they believe and why they believe it (1 Peter 3:15). They will possess the skills to competently and confidently communicate, with the proper use of logic and grammar, both in written and oral form.
An FBA graduate, who possesses the qualities previously stated, will be committed to a life-long endeavor of missions and evangelism. He or she will possess the knowledge to effective share the gospel and a passion expressed in a life of service to others (Mark 10:45, John 12:26). Such a graduate will retain fervency for seeing people come to Christ (Romans 10:14-17), all for the glory of God (Matthew 5:16, Colossians 3:23-24).
