  • 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:

      Because February is in the doldrums of winter, we should be thankful that we have the Valentine Holiday to brighten up this time of year. We think of Valentine’s Day as being about romantic love, and well we should, but love is certainly who we are as Christians. Romans 12:9-10 tells us how to love one another. “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor…”

       In these 2 verses, we have priceless instruction on how to love-

    1. “Let love be without hypocrisy”- Don’t act like you love while being self-serving! Many times, we act like we do something out love, but instead we do it to look good in others' eyes or we do it for the recognition. Love is self-sacrificial, not self-serving! 

    2. “Abhor what is evil and cling to what is good”- True love will always promote what is good! You will always want and encourage the best for someone else. You will encourage them to be Biblically right, and therefore right with the Lord.

    3. “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love”- In a world where separation is so easy and accepted, this certainly should speak to our heart. We don’t leave relationships in the church because we disagree; we are more devoted than that! 

    I love you all! 

    Pastor Bob
