Our History and Our Mission

school of the artsThe First Baptist School of the Arts is established to be a Christian school for providing quality instruction of the arts in a Christian atmosphere.  It is founded in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

More than twenty-five years ago, the vision for a school of the arts for First Baptist Church of Newnan, Georgia, was born in the mind and heart of one of our members, Sandra M. Carter.  From a very small but solid beginning, this program grew from a small girl’s ensemble to a comprehensive school with more than two hundred students meeting weekly for private instruction.

The development of such a program was very unique at its inception and has been copied and spread to churches near and far.  Untold numbers of Christian musicians are serving today with the education offered through our school of the arts.  We see only the tip of the iceberg.

We believe the arts are God-given for the purpose of expression and enrichment of lives.  We further believe that all talents are gifts from God.  We believe in the stewardship and development of all God-given abilities.  We trust every person who shares his or her talents in our school will find a warm welcome and a place that reflects our faith.
