Faithful Ambassadors Bible Baptist Academy, a ministry of Bible Baptist Church, began in August 1996 as a result of a burden God laid upon the heart of Pastor Larry Obero. Pastor Obero brought the vision before the church as an alternative to the humanistic-based philosophy being taught in public schools throughout our state and nation. The Lord brought Brother Abelardo and Sister Delia Herrera to Bible Baptist Church to help Pastor Obero fulfill this vision. The school opened in August 1, 1996 with a total enrollment of 60 students in grades K5 through 12th grade. Today the school has over 150 Alumni with some currently attending various universities, community colleges, and Bible Colleges, while others are serving in the military, ministries, medical field, and law. “Ambassadors” was chosen as the representative symbol of Faithful Ambassadors Bible Baptist Academy because it represents the heart of the school according to Proverbs 13:17. The Ambassador is prevalent in Scripture, and many biblical principles may be learned from his example. The Ambassador has a tremendous reputation throughout the history of mankind. It is a befitting image as Faithful Ambassadors Bible Baptist Academy trains students to strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives.
The purpose of Faithful Ambassadors Bible Baptist Academy is to educate the student spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially. Students are taught how to establish and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. By integrating Scripture into their educational program, we seek for them to develop godly character as well as the academic skills necessary to accomplish God's unique purpose for their lives.
The objective in building a private Christian school is to obey Scriptural imperatives of Deuteronomy 6:5-7a, “…love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…”
And of Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go…” Teaching is training. Training for life must include training for eternity.
A Christian school is an extension of the Christian home in training young people in a Christian environment for time and eternity.
The mission of FABBA is to assist parents in educating and equipping their children to develop a heart for God, to cultivate a sound biblical worldview, to install a love for our country, and to produce a passion to impact their families, churches, and communities for Jesus Christ.
