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).

A. This touches on the sovereignty of God: His never-thwarted government over all things,

B. God is in no way the author of sin, nor is He the positive promoter of sin.

About the Twelve Tribes

About the Twelve Tribes
Question: Do the Hebrews still exist as the historic twelve tribes?
1. This is a complex question because of subtleties of distinction and commonality in the terms, Hebrew, Jew, Israelite. Here is a short overview:
A. Abram is the first identified Hebrew (GEN 14:13) from whom Isaac, Jacob and the
twelve patriarchs came who are the heads of the twelve tribes.
DEU 27:12-13 c/w GEN 49:28.
1. This listing of twelve tribes differs from the list of the twelve tribes which would receive an allotment of land in Canaan.

The Proper Mindset

I. In these verses, Paul focuses on the attitude which:
A. befits the saint.
B. matures the saint.
C. coheres the church.

1. God's election concentrates on making saints to be like Christ. ROM 8:29
2. The ministry of the word is to form Christ in us. GAL 4:19

The Bible: Why? How? Part 4

The Bible: Why? How?
I. The invisible God and Creator has revealed Himself by three means.
A. General revelation in nature. ROM 1:20 c/w PSA 19:1; ACT 14:17.
1. Nature only reveals His existence and power (creative and destructive).
2. Nature does not reveal His purpose or will, nor does it reveal specifics about sin,
forgiveness, reconciliation, the afterlife, etc.
3. Nature’s message is subject to ambiguous interpretation, as is evident by the variety
of superstitions derived from natural phenomena.

1 Timothy 2:1-6

1 Timothy 2:1-6
vs. 1-3.
A. Paul here recommends heavenward pleas for all men, particularly for civil authorities.
1. He opens this section with a conjunctive adverbial phrase, “I exhort therefore...,” after
having written about two disciplined brethren. 1TI 1:19-20.
2. There is a connection between rebuked brethren and civil oppression.
JOH 13:21, 25-27; ACT 17:5-8.
3. It is conceivable that Hymenaeus’ and Alexander’s “blasphemy” consisted of a distorted rejection of authority (c/w 1TI 6:1), against which notion Paul here encourages prayers for those in authority.
