   On May 1, 2013 I was blessed with the opportunity to realize a 36 year old dream.  Returning to the Reelfoot Lake area and serving as pastor of First Baptist Church, Tiptonville.  As a young preacher just getting started in ministry and serving a neighboring church (Wynnburg Baptist Church) as associate pastor, I was privileged to serve Tiptonville First as Interim pastor for five months.  This church loved us, and continued to bless us in the years that followed.  I had a longing to return and serve them and in some small measure, return to them what they have meant to Linda and me.  Now that dream is being realized and we are loving it. It is my joy and privilege to welcome you to First Baptist's web site and to invite you to come and visit us.
       You will find a heartfelt welcome, enjoy worship and hear the Word of God proclaimed.  First Baptist is a church where you will be comfortable if you dress casual or if you come in your finest suit or dress.  Our message is about God and His love, Salvation in His Son Jesus and serving God and others.  I invite you to check out our worship schedule and give us the opportunity to meet you and show you some Christian Southern hospitality.
