School History

For over 135 years, Bay Area Church has been influencing the community for the glory of God. Originally named Clear Creek Baptist Church, it served as the first church on the mainland of Galveston County. Nine years later, the church was renamed First Baptist Church, League City and began to gather momentum in impacting the Kingdom of God through planting several area churches, initiating viable ministries, and ministering to the community through significant points in history such as The Storm of 1900, The Great Depression, and World War I. Through the contentious and forward planning of the church, Bay Area Christian School was started in 1973. Over the next decade, a new property of 50 acres was purchased, the church and school moved campuses, and the church added Bay Area to its name. Buildings, programs, and ministry increased over the coming years as God blessed the efforts of those seeking to glorify Him. There is no other organization like the church- the bride of Christ.

Bay Area Christian School operates as a ministry of Bay Area Church and identifies with and claims the same beliefs as the church. It is a privilege to have a Christian school that the church champions in an effort to impact God's Kingdom. The school's mission of offering Christian values and quality academics endeavors to make disciples, equip families, and serve the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a ministry of Bay Area Church. As the school has celebrated over fifty years of service to the church and the community, we pray that God will continue to use it to be a blessing to the community, the church, and to Him.
