  • 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

     “… but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” – Joshua 24:15b

         Sooner or later every head of the household must decide which direction that household will take. Life is very much like a journey and the most important decision is Who or What you are going to follow as your Guide on this journey?

         Joshua made it very clear to all the people who were with him, they had come to a place of decision and he publicly declared that he and the members of his household were going to follow the Lord! But each one had to decide – they could not go in all directions and follow every voice calling to them. They had to make a choice – one choice and follow/serve the one they chose.

         Let me remind you the Scriptures say that when the children of Israel left Egypt, there was a mixed multitude that went with them (Exodus 12:38). The Israelites were not the only slaves in Egypt, but when the opportunity was given for them to leave Egypt, other slaves from other lands and gods left with them. But many of them had no regard for the Lord or His servant Moses, or now even Joshua. Much of the griping and complaining, all along the journey, came from this group. A whole generation of people had died in the last 40 years of wandering. It was a day for a decision - Who are you going to follow? 

         “But as for Milton and the Knox household, we will serve the Lord!”


    Bro. Milton
