Our school has adopted the following Articles of Faith:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for salvation of the lost and sinful man, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is absolutely essential.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe that a spiritual leader should be an active participant in a local body of believers called the church.
The mission of First Baptist Brandon Christian Academy is to honor and serve Jesus Christ by providing academic and Biblical excellence for boys and girls while developing their faith in partnership with the home, the church, and the community.
