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).


Yom Kippur and the Ark of the Covenant

(Leviticus 16:14) And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
(Leviticus 16:15) Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:

Better Promises

Better Promises
(Hebrews 8:6)
I. The new covenant is here declared to be superior to the old covenant by virtue of its
establishment upon better promises. HEB 8:6.
II. Some promises of God are conditioned upon the performance of the people to whom He makes them. If the condition be not met, God may break His promise.
A. The old covenant was based on this type of promise: one which required the faith and
obedience of its heirs. A promised land was theirs IF they fulfilled a condition of continual faith. HEB 3:18-19.

Noah in the New World

Noah in the New World
I. Everything prior to the Flood is described as “...the world that then was...” (2PE 3:6).
A. This is set in contrast to “...the heavens and the earth, which are now...” (2PE 3:7), a “new
world” in which there are many things different but constructed of the same basic materials
and conditions of the “old world,” including unrighteousness.
B. There is a “...world to come...” (HEB 2:5) in which all things will be new (REV 21:5) and
unrighteousness gone. 2PE 3:13.

The Post-Flood Covenant

The Post-Flood Covenant
(GEN 8:20-9:17)
A. The earth and humanity were experiencing a true Reformation.
1. This Reformation (as others) did not actually change the nature of sinful man.
GEN 6:5 c/w GEN 8:21; PSA 58:3; PRO 22:15.
