Adult Discipleship

Beginning Sunday Evening, September 1st at 5:00, we will be offering a 12-session course on Church History using a 30-minute video followed by discussion and question and answer time. The participant’s book is well written, simplified and beautifully illustrated with charts and pictures. The study is focused on the great men and women of our Christian heritage. This study will be a fun time as well as educational and encouraging. Call the church office to sign-up just so we will know how many participant books to order.  


It hurts to lose someone.

  • 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

    Who’s Your One?  

         I have mentioned several times over the years that I had always dreamed of being the pastor of a church where all the members were actively sharing the gospel with the people around them every day. I am not the only one that feels that way. J. D. Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, believes every pastor should feel that way too. He along with the North American Mission Board has launched an initiative called Who’s Your One across the Southern Baptist Convention. This effort is designed to mobilize every member to identify one person that they know who needs to know the Lord and pledge themselves to intentionally pray for the lost and seek opportunities to share the gospel with them within a year.  

          Over the years we have trained our church members to know how to share the gospel by using the Roman Road, Evangelism Explosion, FAITH, Continuing Witness Training, tracts, and every way we could think of! We really don’t need another method for evangelism – what we need is a thriving passion to see people who are far from God experience the new life He offers through Jesus Christ.  

            Pray with me that God will use Who’s Your One to start that fire of evangelism burning in the hearts of all our members. Pray concerning who the Lord would have you reach out to as your ONE. In the weeks and months ahead, when I ask you, “Who’s your one?” – be prepared to tell me who you are praying for and what the Lord is leading you to do to express His love with them.
