Hammond Baptist Schools, a ministry of First Baptist Church of Hammond, was established to train the spirit, mind, soul, and body of our young people so that they achieve the proper godly balance and priorities in their lives. Proverbs 1:7a says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge." Intellectual preparation begins with respect for God and authority. That is what our school system and Christian education is all about. It's about spiritual development. One cannot have proper academic achievement without spiritual enrichment. Biblical education begins with God and finds its implementation in the home; our schools are extensions of the home and are provided to assist parents in the training of their children.
God has established Hammond Baptist Schools for the purpose of impacting lives for eternity through Bible-based and Christ-centered education.
With an enrollment of approximately 900 students, we offer a safe, nurturing environment where our students realize their God-given potential to impact the world. It is a place for teachers to influence in Jesus' name, where students grow in faith and wisdom, and where young men and women are prepared to go into the world, eagerly pursuing the opportunities that God has made ready for them.
