  • 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,

         We are in the midst of exciting times at First Baptist Church! We have seen a couple of baptisms lately and a few more are coming! We are seeing new ministry opportunities as well as revamping of some older ministries. However, we must not look to programs to change us, but look to the Holy Spirit through revival!

         That’s why I love the old hymn, “Search Me O God”! At the age of 24, a Baptist evangelist, James Edwin Orr (1912-1987) wrote this hymn following an Easter campaign in New Zealand.

        During that campaign in 1936, revival fell on the people of New Zealand. Midnight services had to be added to accommodate the crowds. Many people were converted. Revival fire spread across the island nation. The key to this revival was the public confession and reconciliation of believers. A theme verse for that revival was Psalm 139:23, which says, “Search me, O God, and know my heart.” As hearts were cleansed, the Holy Spirit moved in power.

    “Search me, O God, and know my heart today;

    Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray.

    See if there be some wicked way in me;

    Cleanse me from ev'ry sin and set me free.

    I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin; Fulfill Thy Word, and make me pure within.

    Fill me with fire where once I burned with shame;

    Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.”

    What a powerful thought we could emulate! 

    Pastor Bob Schafer
