The Columbia Institute of Fine Arts
Columbia Institute of Fine Arts
The Columbia Institute of Fine Arts opened its doors in September of 1993 as a ministry of Columbia Baptist Church, seeking to impact our community in new and meaningful ways. The goals of CIFA are to provide quality instruction in the arts and to help prepare students for future service through the development of skills for performance and ministry. The founding of CIFA was inspired in part by these words: "Sing to the Lord a new song...with the sounding of the trumpet...withthe harp and lyre...tambourine and dancing...strings and flute...Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." (Psalm 149 & 150)
The Columbia Institute of Fine Arts is a program of education in which students receive lessons and classroom instruction in the fine arts. The school operates under the Worship, Music and Arts Ministry of Columbia Baptist Church and in keeping with the philosophy and purpose statement of the church. All lessons and classes take place within the safe, caring environment of Columbia Baptist Church.
