Welcome to the life and ministry of First Baptist Church of Dalton. It is our dream, and indeed our goal, at First Baptist Church to recapture the heart of the New Testament church and then translate that into a ministry plan for the 21st Century. To that end, on the right side of this page you will find a link to the Core Values statement for our church. Tracing back to the early church as depicted in Acts 2, we have extracted the core values of that fellowship that have shaped and influenced us here at First Baptist. Our commitment is that these Core Values will guide our church life at every turn in the future. These Values are unchanging and enduring. How they are implemented will certainly change across the years, as our methodologies shift with trends and enhanced ministry tools or technology. We will evaluate our choices and opportunities in light of what we have learned about these values, our “spiritual DNA.”
To be a member of First Baptist is to inherit a great tradition that traces its roots to the beginning of the Church. It is to be willing to carry the torch during our time together in this time and place. A brief history of our church will enlighten you as to how we have become who we are today. We commit deeply to the responsibility to pass on to future generations the Core Values that have defined us and made us who we are, and that will shape and direct our future. As we implement our dreams for the future, we will focus on our Core Values, as revealed by the Spirit of Christ, to guide us.
To that end, we want to be about the work of the Kingdom of God, as revealed in Jesus Christ. These are exciting days to be part of this great church! On the links to the right side of this page you will find all sorts of details that will give you a thumbnail sketch of who we are and what we believe as a church. Of course, you can also contact us if you have specific questions.
We are excited about your interest in being a part of what God is doing at First Baptist Dalton as we seek to be “Together in Christ . . . Sharing His Love.”
