  • 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:

       I think most would agree that this is the most wonderful time of the year! We go from Thanksgiving right into Christmas and follow up with the New Year!

        I love the name given to Jesus in Isaiah 7:4 and then again in Matthew 1:23, “Immanuel”.

    But it’s really more of a title than a name! Immanuel means, God with us! The title is applied to the Messiah, born of the virgin because Jesus was God united with man for man’s sake.

        We could not get to a Holy God, so a Holy God came to us! Immanuel also reminds me of the Holy Spirit that came to dwell with us when Jesus ascended up to Heaven. We were told by Jesus that He wouldn’t leave us comfortless! God with us!

        Immanuel also reminds me of the time when we will be with Jesus forever!

    Revelation 21:1-3 “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them…”

    Angie and I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!

    Pastor Bob Schafer
