  • 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:

    FBC Dayton Family,

       I would like to encourage you to go deeper in Bible Study and fellowship!

    Opportunities include:

    1. Sunday Evening Study 6:00 – “Covenant”!

    2. Dr Les Warren teaches on YouTube but also has classes on Sunday Evening! He is a wonderful teacher.

    3. Karen Levengood is teaching a Precept class on Revelation on Tuesday evenings at 6 pm and Wednesday mornings at 10 am.

    4. We also have an array of Sunday School classes, one of which every church member should be plugged in.

        a. Les Warren teaches our HOPE class, which is for Seniors 50+.

        b. Gina Smith leads our JOYFUL HELPERS class, which is for ladies 40’s–60’s+.

        c. Karen Levengood teaches our LIVING STONES class with no age range.

        d. Ricky Pilcher leads a class of folks called WILLING HEARTS.

        e. Angie & I are with a group of folks from 26–50+ singles or couples!

        f. Matt & Stacy Hampton teach our COLLEGE & CAREER class.

        g. We also have 4 youth classes, 2 Children’s Classes, Kindergarten, Preschool, and Nursery!

    So here is my request! Get plugged in! Maybe it’s time to start back to something you haven’t done in a while! If you have the gift of teaching, guess what you should be doing??? Teaching! 

    Maybe we could be like the Berean’s: “they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so”. (Acts 17:11). 


    Pastor Bob
