Athletics

At Arkansas Baptist School, we believe that the athletic program is an integral part of Christian education. It is our goal to be Christ-like in every aspect of our lives, including athletics. We have a three-fold desire for our athletic teams:

  1. To represent the Lord well
  2. To better understand the Christian life, through lessons learned in sports
  3. To attain excellence in each sport played
