First Baptist Academy is a ministry of First Naples Church. Our desire is to hire the most qualified and certified teachers who profess Christ as Savior and who are able to meet the standards of Good Character set forth by this ministry. We search for teachers who are filled with deep love and concern for God’s children, and who want to become involved in their lives. 

First Baptist Academy is a Kingdom Education School

We are grateful to the Lord for His continued blessing upon the school ministry of First Baptist Church Naples. FBA is a discipleship school dedicated to preparing the next generation to serve in God’s Kingdom. For that very reason, it is important that you understand both the uniqueness and purpose of a Kingdom Education school.

Kingdom Education is defined as the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child into a new identity with Christ, developing a child according to his/her specific abilities given to him by Christ, so that a child would be empowered to live a life characterized by love, trust, and obedience to Christ. The ultimate goal of Kingdom Education is to develop a mature disciple of Jesus Christ whose life glorifies God.

A Kingdom Education school focuses on the reign of God through Jesus Christ in the life of a believer as evidenced by God working in, through and around the individual. The task of preparing the next generation to impact and transform culture requires a biblical worldview to be presented at home, at church, and at school.
