The First Day of School @ SCBA!





This morning we began our 14th year of South Charlotte Baptist Academy! At last count, we have 105 students enrolled at SCBA this year! Praise the Lord!

This morning, we held a brief all-school assembly where we sang the song, “The Wonderful Word of God.” We have adopted it as our school hymn.

I have a precious Book, it’s the Word of God.
It’s the only Book that God has giv’n.
As I read, God speaks to me,
I see Christ and Calvary.
The Wonderful Word of God.

Forever it will stand as the ages roll,
It’s the living and eternal Word.
It’s my guiding light each day,
and without it I would stray;
The Wonderful Word of God.

Dear Lord may I each day read Thy precious Word.
May I love it and obey it too.
May I grow to be like Thee.
May my friends see Christ in me.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Later in the day I had the opportunity to walk one of our new students – a sixth grader -to class. As we were walking I asked him why his parents wanted him to attend SCBA. (He has previously attended a public school in another part of Charlotte.) He responded, very mater-of-fact, “They wanted me to learn more about the Bible.

We endeavor to stand alongside parents and families who not only want their children to receive a solid education but who want their children to do so in an environment where the child will be encouraged and challenged to have a foundation of faith – faith in God and God’s Word! – Pastor Campbell

“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;” 2 Peter 1:5
