  • 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

           This spring has been one of the busiest ones that I can remember. It could be that I am just showing my age a little bit, but the Lord has been doing some truly remarkable things in our midst. What a joy to see so many of the children and young people following the Lord Jesus in believer’s baptism. The need to disciple them and get them plugged into the Body of Christ is paramount.  

          I also have noticed that a lot of people want the church to grow and reach the multitudes of Daytonians that do not belong anywhere, but too many of them are not willing to make the changes necessary in their own lives in order to see that happen. Their attitude is, “Sure I want to see everybody come to faith in Jesus, but don’t expect me to change what I am doing. Somebody else will have to make the sacrifices necessary, but not me.” The only problem with this type of thinking is that it’s not what the Bible says – read Peter’s letters to the church. Jesus is not the only One who must sacrifice Himself. If we follow Him, we will have to also! Are you ready to suffer for the sake of the Gospel? Ready or not, you will, if you follow Jesus!  

           Brothers and sisters, it will take all of us working together to reach the lost people of Dayton, Tennessee. This means you and I need to enroll in a Sunday School class, start attending and inviting others to join us. Start sharing our faith everywhere we go. Help disciple younger believers as we go along and don’t stop until the Lord calls us home. I guarantee you; we will not regret doing this when we each stand before the Lord Jesus on Judgment Day!
