Easter Offering

As believers, we are called to boldly send the hope of the gospel. No matter where we are, God is calling us to be on mission through praying, giving and going. With over 273 million people in North America who do not know Jesus Christ, the need is great, and the mission is far from finished. The North American Mission Board helps churches reach the lost in the United States, Canada and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa. That’s 363 million people, 350 languages and more than 14 religions.

Thank you for your generous giving!

  • 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 was reading from the Prophet Ezekiel the other day and came across this passage concerning the restoration of Israel – Ezekiel 34:25-31. Verse 26b says, “And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing.” We have certainly had many showers this year – record numbers of the wet stuff – but we have also had many showers of blessing – people professing their faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Thank you for sowing the Good News faithfully week after week and year to year. In the Lord’s timing He will bring forth the showers and the blessing will come if we do not grow weary. I want to encourage you to keep on working for the Lord while we have the opportunity to do so – don’t quit and don’t give up, the Lord is near! Praise His Holy Name!  

          Brother Erich Seibold has been diligently preparing for ministry as a student with the Luther Rice College and Seminary. He has been working and training for several years, but he is finishing up his degree this spring. As a part of his requirements, he will preach for us next Sunday, March 31. Keep Erich in your prayers and encourage him by inviting someone to come and worship with us this week.  

          I told Rev. Jeff Harvel yesterday that I was excited about preaching through 1 Peter. The message of our living hope is one the whole world needs to hear, and we have the privilege of sharing it with them. On April 7, we will focus on the third chapter about always being ready to give the reason why our hope is in Christ. Don’t miss this message.
