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 PROBLEM WITH HALLOWEEN

The festive occasion known as Halloween is now taken for granted. It is a time of curious, rather morbid activities for children and adults alike when some of the darkest themes of a sin-burdened creation are exhumed from history's graveyard for public display and for the profit of carnal merchants who promote the entire affair. Yet how many people (especially Bible-believers) have given honest, serious consideration to the nature of this seasonal celebration?

Casting Down Imaginations

(2CO 10:3-5) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

1. The devil is waging war on our minds. 2CO 10:3-5; EPH 6:11-12
a. The devil wants you to believe lies, because he’s the father of them and he uses them to draw your worship. JOH 8:44; JOH 4:24 c/w 1CO 10:20

The Basic Gospel

The Plan of Salvation: the Basic Gospel

*All scriptures taken from the King James Version 1611.

Someone professes Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Why do we need a saviour? What do we need saving from?

I Our problem: sin and death.
A. All have sinned.
(Romans 3:23) - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
B. The penalty of sin is death.
(Romans 6:23a) - For the wages of sin is death;
C. Adam's sin brought sin and death to all mankind.

The Lifting Up of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lifting Up of the Lord Jesus Christ
I. Three times in the Gospel of John Christ prophesied of the manner of His death as being lifted up.
A. In JOH 3:14, Christ drew a parallel to Moses’ lifting up of the serpent in the wilderness.
c/w NUM 21:8-9.
1. The lifted up serpent was by the order of God, as was the death of Christ.
2. Inasmuch as the serpent speaks of the curse of death from sin, so Christ would die
under the curse of sin. 2CO 5:21.
B. In JOH 8:28, Christ said to the Pharisees, “...When ye have lifted up the Son of man...”

The Church Meeting at Mizpeh

The Church Meeting at Mizpeh
(1 Samuel 7:3-12)
I. The ark of the covenant which was the token of God’s presence had been taken by the Philistines as a judgment of God on Israel. 1SAM 4:10-11.
A. The ark housed the written law of God which was Israel’s chief advantage.
HEB 9:4; ROM 3:1-2.
B. Well was it said of that tragedy, “...The glory is departed from Israel...” (1SAM 4:21-22).
C. The Philistines suffered a plague of emerods for demeaning the ark of God with
heathenism (1SAM 5 c/w PSA 78:66). So they sent it back to Israel with superstitious
golden images. 1SAM 6:4-5.
