Mission Statement

The First Baptist Christian Education Development Center (CEDC) was created to provide a Christian environment in which a child can grow and develop. Our purpose is to provide care and opportunities for development physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. This ministry seeks to touch the lives of children and their families in a positive, constructive way through the power of the Holy Spirit. The CEDC operates in full alignment with the First Baptist Church family and serves as one of the vehicles the church uses to reach its vision.


Grounded in God, Growing in Christ, and Giving to others!

The goal of the Christian Education Development Center is to provide young children with the foundations for making Christ the center of their lives. Our staff consists of professing Christians who have a special calling to reach out to young children and share their faith. It is our hope to build a strong relationship with each parent in order to better meet the needs of the children.
