          D Groups are small groups of 3 to 5 people who focus on God’s Word to develop growth in their Christian life and become disciple makers. Some groups are already meeting, but more are beginning. We are looking for folks to participate in groups and to lead groups.

  • 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 the deacons and all the members of the church who gave us cards and gifts to honor us this year for Pastor’s Appreciation. Your kindness and consideration have always been a reflection of our Father’s love toward us. Thank you for being loving and caring children like our Heavenly Father!

        I hope you are faithfully reading the Return to Me books you received from the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. Last week at the Tennessee Baptist Summit at Brentwood Baptist Church, I was telling Kevin Minchey, the Church Revitalization Specialist of the TBMB, how much I have enjoyed reading the book and leading the discussion group each Wednesday evening after prayer meeting. He said, “You did know that there are videos summarizing each week’s theme on the TBMB website, didn’t you?” That was the first that I had heard about the videos, but I showed the group last Wednesday the video for week 5 on my cell phone. The author, Claude V. King has recorded one for each week’s study. I want to encourage you to watch the video each week before you begin your reading. Show it to your family because it will inspire them and give them a step-up on the material. Simply go to this website - Church Revitalization - Tennessee Baptist Mission Board ( and you will find the videos. It is my prayer that the Lord will use this as a foundation for the work He is going to be doing in and through FBC Dayton in the future. God bless you all.
