About The Cincinnati Church

We are an historic baptist church that believes in the Divine inspiration and authority of the King James Bible as the word of God in English which is the only standard of our beliefs and practices. As the scriptures teach, we believe that only believers in the Lord Jesus Christ may be baptized, and that baptism is necessary for membership in a local church. The local church was meant to be a vessel for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ; the expression on earth of His divine government of the kingdom of heaven; a cote into which His sheep should obediently press for safety, comfort, instruction, improvement of faith and all attendant blessings of the Holy Spirit Who indwells it. For more information on our beliefs and practices, please read our Statement of Beliefs.

For information about when and where we meet for worship, please contact us.

For some food for thought see the Thought for the Day normally authored by Pastor Tim Boffey and occasionally authored by other church members.

We also have a large library of digital sermons for your edification. We urge all who use this online ministry to not make it a substitute for gospel obedience in repenting of sin, believing Jesus Christ and His written word, and being properly baptized into a genuine local church that is walking in the truth so as to assemble with them for corporate praise of Almighty God (MAR 1:15; ACT 2:38-47; ACT 8:12; ACT 26:20; EPH 3:20-21; HEB 10:25).


The Message of Genesis 6-9

The Message of Genesis 6-9

I. We do well to remember that Jesus Christ is the central Person of scripture, and all scripture
speaks of Him. JOH 5:39.
A. The account of Noah, the flood and the ark is a figure of Christ’s salvation. 1PE 3:20-21.
B. Jesus Christ deemed the account to be historical fact. MAT 24:37-39.
C. If GEN 6-9 is not historical fact, then Christ was wrong, was little more than a heathen
philosopher advancing moral lessons from a fable, and He has not provided a sure word of
prophecy to instruct us about end times and final judgment.

JOH 16:5-6.
B. The brethren wept when Paul left and would see them no more. ACT 20:36-38.
C. Mary and Martha were filled with grief when their brother died. JOH 11:32-33.
1. They were deeply saddened even though they knew that he was in heaven and that they would see him again. JOH 11:23-27.
2. Jesus Himself wept when Lazarus died. JOH 11:33-35.
D. When you love someone, it's painful to let them go. JOH 11:35-36.

Before the Flood, the Other Factor

(GEN 6:1) And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
(GEN 6:2) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
(GEN 6:3) And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Before the Flood: The Other Factor (Genesis 6:1-4)

Before the Flood, the Other Factor
(GEN 6:1) And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
(GEN 6:2) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
(GEN 6:3) And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Before the Flood: Another Factor? (Genesis 6:1-4)

Before the Flood: Another Factor?
(Genesis 6:1-4)
I. Some affirm that GEN 6:1-4 describes “unequal yoke” marriages of godly Sethite men to unbelieving women, and that such unions corrupted true religion along the lines of DEU 7:3-4.
A. It is not to be denied that a believer may be adversely affected by an unbelieving spouse,
and that a believer who selects a spouse based upon looks rather than character is
particularly susceptible since they are lacking discretion even before marriage.
B. This issue is magnified when children are brought into the picture.

Why the Flood? Part 1

Why the Flood?
A. (GEN 6:11) The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
1. corrupt: as pa. pple. Corrupted, depraved, spoiled.
a. The total depravity of man was on full display. ROM 3:9, 15-18.
b. True religion was, except for Noah, gone. Corrupt religion lends itself to
violence. GEN 4:8; PSA 106:35-38.
c. The condition was universal: “...all flesh had corrupted his way...” (GEN 6:12).
2. Prior to the Flood, there had been no law given for capital punishment.
GEN 4:15 c/w GEN 9:5-6.
