From The Desk Of The Administrator

mr swanson 2Thank you for visiting Berean Baptist Christian School’s web site. Let me extend a warm “Kingsmen” welcome to you and your family. We appreciate your interest in what I believe is one of the strongest and most experienced educational institutions in the community. Since 1977, Berean Baptist Christian School has served and met the academic, spiritual, and emotional needs of children in Rockford and neighboring communities.

Why such a legacy in this fast-paced changing community? I believe it is because we have been faithful to keep the foundation, Jesus Christ, and our core values central in our ministry.

We are also committed to offering a college-preparatory program of excellence to our students. We feel it is our responsibility as Christian educators to be spiritually mature, professionally trained, and highly motivated to prepare our students for their God-ordained destiny. Therefore, we maintain high educational standards.

As a school, we want to keep the Bible at the core of everything we do. We also desire that our students have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ for He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Life with Him is contentment and fulfillment; there is no life without Him. We want to train our students to have a heartfelt desire to serve others in the family, school, community, and on home or foreign mission fields. We want our students to have a strong commitment to excellence in order to prepare them for their Kingdom work, whether it be in a secular or sacred ministry.

Finally, our goal is to develop Christian character in our students that helps them to be in the world, but not of the world. Our desire is to come alongside our parents and churches to reinforce the family values that develop men and women of integrity who will be tomorrow’s leaders. The profile for the student that we accept at Berean Baptist Christian School includes:

  • Obedient and disciplined heart
  • Willing and determined spirit
  • Determination to do his/her best unto the Lord
  • Diligence to the task
  • Servant heart and hands
  • Willingness to use and develop God-given talents and gifts for His glory
  • Desire to be a BBCS student
  • Supportive and respectful family

We count it as a privilege and honor to prepare well-equipped Christians who are willing to serve others. The administration, faculty, and staff will be diligent in our prayers and preparation of these gifts from God – your children and our students.

If you live in the Rockford, IL area or will be visiting Rockford soon, please visit Berean Baptist Church and School or call for an appointment at 815-962-4841.

In His Service,

Mr. Doug Swanson
Administrator
Berean Baptist Christian School
“Training tomorrow’s Christian leaders ~ today.”
