  • 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

               I recently enjoyed a Pastor’s Retreat led by Dr. Johnny Hunt, from FBC Woodstock, Georgia. It was called a Timothy + Barnabas Conference because the focus is to receive instruction from a wise and seasoned brother as well as to encourage one another in the work of the ministry. The conference was cosponsored by the North American Mission Board and several other Christian ministry resources. Bro. Johnny challenged and inspired us with his teaching and sharing from his vast experience. We were also blessed by the music of the Nolen’s family (they are also members of FBC Woodstock, GA). They are regular members of the Gaither videos of Southern Gospel music. There were over 200 pastors and their wives present and the fellowship was a pure delight. Rev. Joe Kelly and his wife, Sharon, (the parents of Christy Ellis) were also at that meeting, so we had an opportunity to spend some time together. The first evening I sat at a table with several couples and made friends with a pastor and his wife from Cookeville, TN. In fact, we felt such a close comradery that I spent about half of my free time Wednesday afternoon just sharing stories and laughing with this precious brother and sister in Christ. As I have reflected on that retreat, I imagine that heaven will be like meeting people from all walks of life and finding such joy and oneness that we will literally spend eternity getting to know one another and sharing such a fellowship, all because of our precious Lord Jesus Christ!
