Imagine if every believer could answer that question with the name of a person who is far from God – a person for whom they’re praying and with whom they are seeking to share the gospel. We believe God’s people don’t merely need another method for evangelism – what they need is a white-hot passion to see people who are far from God experience the new life He offers through Jesus Christ. Over the coming days, our church will prioritize personal ownership of the Great Commission as we each intentionally pursue one person with the hope of the gospel.
Beginning Sunday Evening, September 1st at 5:00, we will be offering a 12-session course on Church History using a 30-minute video followed by discussion and question and answer time. The participant’s book is well written, simplified and beautifully illustrated with charts and pictures. The study is focused on the great men and women of our Christian heritage. This study will be a fun time as well as educational and encouraging. If you did not sign up, please come anyways! The class meets in C-9.

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,"
- Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions “
I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4:35b
Our goal for this year’s Golden Offering for Tennessee Baptist Missions is $3,500.00. This offering provides invaluable financial support for ministries that help reach Tennesseans for Christ. Here are some of the ministries it supports: Baptist Collegiate Ministries; Compassion Ministries; Restorative Justice Ministries; Christian Job Corps; Church Revitalization; Church Planting; and Associational Ministries. I want to encourage each of us to give sacrificially so that others across this Great State of Tennessee will have the opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and respond to Him in saving faith.
Who’s Your One?
Imagine if every Christian could answer that question with the name of a person who is far from God – a person they’re praying for and seeking to share the gospel with. That’s the intention behind Who’s Your One. We believe God’s people don’t need another method for evangelism – what they need is a burden to see people who are far from God experience the new life He offers through Jesus Christ. I want to remind all of us, Jesus told His disciples to follow Him and He would make them “fishers of men.” Now think about this, if you are not “fishing,” you are not “following” Jesus! One of the greatest privileges God grants us as His servants is the opportunity to impact the future - let your light shine for Jesus, and you will.
