In 1953, a vision- and mission-minded group of people from the First Baptist Church of Dothan followed God’s leadership and established a new church in a field in the northwest part of our city. This newly planted church was able to take root and grow because of God’s goodness and the generous gifts from that small group of founding members. These faithful brothers and sisters gave with love, faith, and sacrifice because they believed in the work of the gospel and the potential of this church to impact future generations for the Kingdom of God.
They entrusted this Legacy to us.
Their example of selfless stewardship still stands as an example for us today. Believing that all that we are and all that we have belongs to God, they chose to wisely use what God entrusted to them to be a blessing for others – then, now, and for many years yet to come.
Now, it’s our turn.
Nearing our 70th year as a vibrant church in this city, God has used us for His glory and for the good of many. From our local efforts of sharing the love of Christ in the city, to our missional reach to the nations, we have experienced God’s blessings, encouraged believers, and reached the lost. Believing that God has called us to be a family of everyday missionaries, it’s time for us to think about what’s next.
It’s time for us to create our Legacy.
