Let me extend a personal invitation for you to visit the Bible Baptist Church in Richfield, Ohio.

The Bible Baptist church is an independent, fundamental Baptist church ministering in the Summit, Medina, and Cuyahoga tri-county area. We are a local, Bible-based ministry with a world-wide vision located in Richfield, Ohio.

The Bible Baptist Church may not be the biggest church around but we offer you an opportunity to know and worship an awesome God, the Creator of heaven and earth. Our goal is to help you find how you can have a close, personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.

The Bible Baptist Church desires to uplift, honor, and glorify our Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do. We want to proclaim the gospel message and see people trust Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. We want to build up individual Believers and their families in the faith. We want to be a positive, Godly influence of salt and light in our schools, workplaces, and communities.

We hope you will accept our invitation and join us as we study and proclaim God's Word, the Bible, together!

--Pastor Alfred B. Davis ("Pastor Al")

Celebrating 25 Years as Pastor of RBBC

We celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Pastor Alfred B. Davis as pastor of the Richfield Bible Baptist Church on Sunday, August 7, with a wonderful time of food and fellowship following the morning service.

Thank you to all who helped make the day special and enjoyable and to Pastor Davis for 25 years of faithful service. And thanks be to God for His making it possible!

 

Plowing & Planting at the Fair

We had a good time at the Summit County Fair at the end of July. The crowds were good and we were able to do a good bit of "ploughing and planting" during the week.

The centerpiece of our church booth at the Summit County Fair is the 3-door display.

Some of our guys got creative at the fair this year with some old surveillance cameras and Matthew 12:36 along with a couple of Bible tracts to remind people that God sees all and hears all.

Church Dedication

Great time at our church dedication service this past Sunday! Big turnout and a number of guests, including our guest preacher David Iseminger, our good friends Eric and Derricka Hawout, and Richfield Mayor Michael Wheeler.

After an excellent message by Bro. Iseminger from Acts chapter 2 on the power of place we enjoyed a wonderful meal and time of fellowship. In fact, we had enough good food that we were able to enjoy a second meal after the evening service!

Thank you to all who helped make our special day memorable and enjoyable. And thanks be to God for His tremendous blessings. As we sang during one of the hymns, "Little is much when God is in it!"

Friday Night Bible Study Growing

Our Friday night Bible Study has been growing since the advent of the COVID pandemic. At one time, we were able to set up tables in a large rectangular fashion so that we could all see each other. However, that left a big, unused, open space in the middle of the room. So, when we began running out of room this past winter we had to go to rows of tables in order to increase our seating capacity. Now, we are begining to get a little tight on space again. This past Friday night, for instance, we had about 33 people. We had enough seating but it definately had a full feeling. It is a nice problem to have!

 

Annual Spaghetti Dinner

Thanks to everyone who helped to make our annual Spaghetti Dinner a success! We had a great turnout for a cold, snowy Sunday with plenty of food. We even had enough to enjoy after our Sunday evening service as well.

 

Pastor Davis Testifies Before Ohio House Health Committee

The Ohio House Health Committee held hearings on H.B. 324 on Tuesday. H.B. 324, Enact Shirley and Wilma's Law, was introduced by Rep. Gary Click to protect the rights of hospitalized Ohioans to be visited by family and clergy in the midst of a health crisis. Rep. Click introduced H.B. 324 due to his inability as a pastor to visit members of his church in the hospital who were suffering from COVID and seeing them deprived of family visits as well.

Pastor Davis joined with Rep. Click as well as Chris Long, President of the Ohio Christian Alliance, Pastor Dan Wolvin, Ohio Director of Awake America, and several others to give testimony in support of H.B. 324.

A pdf of Pastor Davis' testimony is available at: http://live.mapleknoll.us/HB324-Testimony.pdf.

Unexpected Recognition

We were pleasantly surprised to receive two proclamations of commendation from the Ohio State House of Representatives in January. The first was a congratulations from the Ohio House to the Richfield Bible Baptist Church on the celebration the upcoming (September) celebration of the 40th anniversary of our founding. The second was a recognition by the Ohio House of Pastor Davis' 25 years of service as Pastor of the Richfield Bible Baptist Church, coming up in August.

A special thank you to Richfield’s own, Representative Bill Roemer, who sponsored both of these commendations! And thank you to the Ohio State House of Representatives and Speaker Robert R. Cupp for the honors. May God bless you!

New Year's Eve Celebration

Join us tonight as we welcome in the New Year together. Our regular Friday night Bible study starts at 7:00pm. Following the Bible study, we will enjoy some food and fellowship as we welcome 2022!

May this be the year the Lord comes to catch away His people. Maranatha! Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

 

2021: A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 was a year of challenges. It started with a contested election resulting in a questionable new administration that began immediately positioning itself as one of the most anti-Christian, anti-Sematic, pro-death, globalist administrations our nation has ever experienced. The left-leaning media outlets, the new administration, the leftists in congress, and the leftist controlled social media platforms all conspired to fan the flames of COVID phobia, pushing a questionable vaccine and dividing Americans into the clean (vaxed) and the unclean (unvaxed).

Nevertheless, 2021 was also a year of tremendous blessings and opportunities. In the midst of the chaos and confusion, God has shown His faithfulness and watchcare over our church time and time again.

In January, several of our people succumbed to the Chinese virus, including Pastor Davis who spent most of the last week of January in the hospital. Through it all, the church continued to meet in person, with people filling in where needed and Pastor Davis preaching via Google Meet. December saw another resurgence of COVID and, despite a number of people succumbing once more to the Chinese virus, the church continued to meet for all services. Once again, people filled in where needed and Google Meet made it possible for preaching, even song leading, to continue despite COVID quarantines.

Despite COVID challenges, we were able to continue the radio program uninterrupted during the year as well. We had some great guests, including John Lutz (pastor), Chris Long (Ohio Christian Alliance), Michael Goldstein (Proclaiming Justice to the Nations), Ian Juby (creation researcher, media producer), LaVerne Gore (U.S. congressional candidate), Jennifer Gross (Ohio House representative), James Simpson (author, investigative reporter), Gary Click (pastor, Ohio House representative), William J. Federer (author, historian), Mike Tripoldi (Grace Hospice), and Rod Black (evangelist, author).

Throughout the year, God has blessed in many ways. In June we were able to resume weekly services at a local nursing home (though it was shut down due to illness again later in the year). July saw us at the Summit County Fair once more - mask free. Pastor Davis marked 24 years as Pastor of the Richfield Bible Baptist Church in August, as well 15 years on the radio. Then, in September, our church celebrated 39 years of ministry in Richfield.

Attendance has been up in 2021 and we have continued to see visitors at our Sunday services and Friday night Bible studies. We have seen people come to Christ, grow spiritually, and get more involved in ministry opportunities. Financially, we have seen one of our best years ever this past year, enabling us to give more to missions as well. Also, our church and radio program websites have averaged more views and our social media sites have generated more responses than ever in 2021.

Still, as we enter 2022, we need to remember, as the Lord told Joshua in Joshua 13:1, "...there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed." Until the Lord calls us home, we still have much to do. We need to resolve to do more in the coming year; to "...consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching" (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Church Anniversary Celebration

 

 

We had a great time at our Church Anniversary Celebration. The Richfield Bible Baptist Church celebrated 39 years of ministry on Sunday, September 19. It was one of the best anniversary celebrations that we have had in years.

Attendance was up, Bro. Eric Hawout was with us again this year, providing special music during the morning service and after dinner. Pastor Davis preached on the importance of the local church and people that compose it for carrying out the work of God in the world around us.

The fellowship and food were both plentiful and exceptional. We had a good turnout, wonderful fellowship, and an incredible meal. A truly blessed day!

To God be the glory, great things He hath done!

 

Thanks to everyone who helped out, provided food, and attended!

Pi(e) Day Fellowship

 

We had our annual Pi(e) Day Fellowship on March 21 this year.Do to scheduling conflicts, we were unable to have it on March 14, the actual Pi Day (3.14).

 

Still, we had a great time of fellowship, along with over 14 pies to sample, along with sloppy joes, salad, chips, and several sides.

 

Thanks to everyone who helped out, provided food, and attended!

 


21 Feb 21

Annual Church Spaghetti Dinner

We had a great time of fellowship at our annual church spaghetti dinner this past Sunday. It was originally planned for the previous Sunday but had to be set back a week.

A few times a year we are unable to use the meeting room due to a scheduling conflict with a group that has been meeting at the hotel longer than we have. Consequently, they preempt us when it comes to using the room. On those occasions we end up either in the breakfast area (Fridays) or one of the upstairs suites (Sundays).

Thanks to everyone who helped out, provided food, and attended!
