OUR FAITH

What We Believe

  • The Bible is God’s unique revelation to people. It is the inspired, infallible Word of God, and the supreme and final authority on all matters upon which it teaches. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.

  • There is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other.

  • All people are created in God’s image and matter deeply to Him. Central to the message of the Bible is that God loves people, and invites them to live in communion with Himself and in community with each other.

  • Apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost and, because of sin, deserve the judgment of God. However, God gives salvation and eternal life to all who trust in Jesus Christ and in His sacrifice on his or her behalf. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross.

  • Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life, willingly took upon Himself all of our sins, died and rose again bodily, and is at the right hand of the Father as our advocate and mediator. Someday, He will return to consummate history and fulfill the eternal plan of God.

  • The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ. He also indwells believers and is available to empower them to lead Christ-like lives, and provides believers with spiritual gifts with which to serve the church and reach out to a lost and needy world.

  • Death seals the eternal destiny of each person. At the final judgment, unbelievers will be separated from God into condemnation. Believers will be received into God’s loving presence and rewarded for their faithfulness to Him in this life.

  • All believers are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. Spiritual unity is to be expressed among Christians by love and acceptance of one another.

  • The local church is a congregation of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability, and community with each other. Through it, believers invest time, energy, and resources to fulfill the Great Commission — reaching lost people and growing them into fully devoted followers of Christ.

OUR STORY

Over 80 years of Friendships

Kenton Baptist Church was organized on November 7, 1937, with nine charter members and four candidates for baptism. By September of 1939 the membership had grown to fifty-seven and the church applied for admittance to the North Bend Association of Baptists (now called Northern Kentucky Baptist Association). Weekly services, held in the Kenton Station Road Building, began in 1945 after eight years of bi-weekly worship.

Ground-breaking for the basement of the current facility was held on April 11, 1965. In November of that year, Sunday School was held for the last time at the old building, after which the church members marched up Highway 177 to the new church for the first worship service. The sanctuary (upper level) was added in 1970.

From the beginning, Kenton Baptist has been a mission-minded church. In May of 1939, five dollars was sent to the Cooperative Program. Although a seemingly small amount, it was a great sacrifice of love at the time. Today the church continues to support the Cooperative Program, Northern Kentucky Baptist Association, Oneida Bible Institute, and many other missionary needs both far away and local.

God has truly blessed Kenton Baptist over the years and we continue to see His blessings today. Our hope is that God would be glorified through changed lives because of Jesus Christ, both in our community and around the world.
