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 Bible: Why? How? Part 1

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.

of superstitions derived from natural phenomena.

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day in America has a noble history of national pausing to give thanks to the Creator for His benefits. But the reverence and humility once associated with the custom has been considerably displaced by what is now truly important to our culture: pleasure (long weekend, football, feasting, shopping). Pleasure in and of itself is not evil, but when it becomes the summum bonum of a nation, watch out!
