How we began...

Columbus Bible Church began meeting on January 6th, 2008 under the direction and leadership of its lead elder, David Reid. David is a tentmaking preacher dedicated to preaching the word and doing the work of an evangelist (2 Timothy 4:2-5). He is the author of Are There Contradictions in the Bible: Questions & Answers on Dispensationalism, the founder of the MidActs Tracts gospel tract publishing ministry, a frequent Bible conference speaker, and the host of a popular internet-based Bible question and answer program.

David and his wife, Stephanie, have been actively involved in church related ministry since before they were married. Buckeyes since birth, they both have placed their faith in Christ's shed blood as payment for their sins. They are graduates of Grace School of the Bible and have resided in the Columbus area for more than fifteen years.

When work brought them to Columbus, they were in search of a church home for their young, growing family. Wanting to raise their children in a King James, Bible believing, rightly dividing, grace church and realizing the need for one in the capital of their home state, Columbus Bible Church was formed. Prior to planting Columbus Bible Church, David and Stephanie helped plant the MidActs Grace Fellowship nka Miami Valley Bible Church in Beavercreek, Ohio.

Columbus Bible Church exists to glorify God by "the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery" given to the apostle Paul and to carry out "the ministry of reconciliation" committed to our trust as ambassadors of Christ (Romans 16:25, Ephesians 3:1-9). We are committed to making known the simple gospel message that Christ died for our sins, as well as helping others learn Bible truth from a distinctly Pauline, dispensational understanding of scripture.
