Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Yeshua and the Holy Spirit Perform Another Miracle WR15-225
In 2010, I led a
team of people who love Cincinnati to plant Christ the King Church. In 2012,
after two years of meeting in a Rec Center, Fairview Baptist Church voted
togive us their buildingnear the University of Cincinnati. The
building has helped Christ the King Church grow and thrive in the Uptown area
of Cincinnati. It was a tremendous blessing to be a two year old church plant
with our own facility! In the three years since then, we have completely
rehabilitated the building to fit the needs of a young and growing
In January of
2014, Christ the King Church planted our second campus in the eastern
Cincinnati neighborhood of Mt. Washington. Over the past year and a half, we have
grown steadily and has made great efforts to become an asset to the community.
It quickly became clear that space was an issue in the Rec Center where
we were currently meeting and our options were limited. Pastor Dustin
began looking for a new space but soon realized that the Rec Center was
the only reasonable option he had.
In May of 2014, Pastor Dustin Nimmo sent this prayer request to the congregation.
Every door we’ve tried to open has been
closed. In light of the text from this past Sunday, I’ve felt compelled to
invite all of us to begin to pray in the way the Scriptures have commanded us
to pray: ‘Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with
thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a
door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ’ (Colossians 4:2-3) –
Pray for an open door. Literally pray for an open door to a new space that can
accommodate more people……..Pray for a major financial gift. Pray for the
situation to change at the school. Pray for the rules to change at the Rec
Center. Pray for a place that hasn’t been available previously to fall into our
laps. Pray more than anything that God would open the door and we would be
faithful to follow Him in obedience.
earnestly for a year regarding our space issues. Little did we know,
Eastern Hills Baptist Church was five miles away and also praying regarding
their future. Eastern Hills Baptist Church has been in decline for the past
several years, and had been praying for God to move in their congregation.
In late April of
this year, we received a call from the head Deacon (Your Watchman on the Wall) of Eastern Hills
Baptist Church. He was calling because he had gotten wind of Christ the King’s
need for space and wanted to explore how Christ the King and Eastern Hills
might work together. We were overwhelmed by this prospect, especially because
we couldn’t believe this could happen twice!
On June 14,
2015, Eastern Hills Baptist church voted unanimously to give their building CTK
and join us. It is exciting to see CTK’s congregation, with a median age of 30
years old, join with Eastern Hills Baptist Church, who has a median age of 70.
Our churches couldn’t be more excited to see what God is going to do
through us and we’re praying for many years of ministry that awaits us on the
east side of Cincinnati! It is clear that God is providing for the needs of all
of us in a way that gives Him all the glory.
This building is
located at 5825 Islington Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45227.
2015, at 10am will be our first service in the new location.
On 2,3 and 4 October CtK will host its annual prophecy and spiritual warfare conference. The keynote speaker will be Russ Dizdar.
