  • 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

                    Judy and I want to thank all of you who participated in our 30th anniversary of ministry at First Baptist Church. Thank you for the cards, letters, gifts and other expressions of love and support you gave to us. We did not know what to expect because we haven’t done this before and the likelihood of living long enough to repeat it is very unlikely! However, every one of you contributed an important part of this wonderful celebration. Most of all we want to say, “Thanks be to God who made all of this and everything else possible.” I believe this experience was just a hint of the great celebration that is to come, when we all get to heaven and rejoice as one in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – what a day that will be!  

          Until that day comes, we need to be about our Father’s business – making disciples of all the nations. That is the main business of the church and I truly believe when Christ comes, the only way to be truly prepared for His coming is to be busy doing the last thing He told us to do before He ascended. We need to ask ourselves from time to time, “What are we doing to make sure the people around us are ready for the Lord’s return? Are we faithfully sharing Jesus with others on a regular basis? Are we working together to support the mission efforts of our church and the Gospel around the globe?”  

          In the next few months we will hear from a few missionaries that we support: March 17, IMB missionary to East Asia, Phillip B. will speak and May 22, Jobi and Anju Chundattu and family will be here! Don’t miss these!
