Doors of the Bible:

Friday, April 7th

Plan now to join us as we walk

through the most important

message in the world found in

the Bible – it’s called the gospel. This gospel, or good news, can be seen in biblical history by walking through a series of monumental doors that all point to the person and work of Jesus Christ. We’ll present a walk through of these doors on Good Friday, April 7.

  • Church Motto

    First......that all may know Jesus.

    This is the motto of First Baptist Dayton, TN

    taken from 1 Timothy 2:3-5.

     "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,"

  • From the Pastor:

         We are quickly approaching the most important weekend in the year! I cannot describe how excited I am for my first Easter at First Baptist Church! We are seeing some growth, and I think most of you are excited about FBCD being your home church.

    A church grows when people are excited about what the Lord is doing in their individual lives and as well as in the group at large. 

    Mark your calendars for: 

    March 19: We will begin a series leading up to


    April 2: Palm Sunday Service - Adult Choir


    April 7: Good Friday- “The Doors of the Bible”- An

       event for the whole family! 

    April 9: Easter Sonrise Service - Followed by

       Breakfast and then on to Sunday School

    April 9: Easter Service 10:15 am

    Are you excited and passionate about what the Lord is doing in your church and in your heart? Invite someone to come to church with you! 

    Easter for the church is like the Superbowl, the World Series, the Daytona 500, the Masters, and the Olympics multiplied by an infinite number! So, this year, let us remember the reason for the season! 

    Acts 4:33 “And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all.”

    You have that same power if you have the same testimony! 

    Pastor Bob
