  • 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 remember the anticipation of Christmas when I was a child! The weather turned cool, December came, we were off from school for Christmas break, and the days crept by until finally Christmas Eve came! I would be so excited that night that I couldn’t get to sleep! What was the big deal? For me, it was the whole package- I love the gifts, the food, the celebration, & the gathering of family! What about the worship?

    Every Christmas should include:

    - The Reading of the Christmas Story from Luke 1&2 and Matthew 1&2.

    - Praying and Thanking the Lord for His Wonderful Gift!

    - The singing of Christmas Carols and Hymns (I love the classics, “Oh Holy Night” & “Silent Night”)

        One of our most well-known Christmas carols is “Joy to the World”.

        Interestingly, “Joy to the World” was written about the return of Jesus, not necessarily His birth. As a Christian Adult, I still love Christmas, but I really get excited about thinking about Jesus’ return for His Church!

        I do enjoy the cradle, but it means nothing without the cross! The cross means nothing without an empty grave! The empty grave means nothing without the return of Jesus! Have a Merry Christmas and use this opportunity to point others to Jesus, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!

    “Joy to the world, the Lord is come, Let Earth receive her King, Let every heart prepare Him room”.
