Bohon Christian Church is located on KY 390; an old winding highway that goes through the hills of western Mercer county along the Salt River continuing towards the Chaplin River.
The Church stands on the top of one of the steepest hills in this part of the county. The congregation has continually worshiped for over a century and a half and one of the charter members relatives is still an active member here today!
Our history began in 1845 when a group of area residents saw a need for a community church. They named the church “Mount Vernon Christian Church” and they followed the teachings of Alexander Campbell. This original building was destroyed by fire in 1849. In 1852, the congregation followed the Holy Spirit and built another structure. This was a small frame church that had two doors on the front which enabled men and women to enter the building on opposite sides. This structure stood until 1912 when it was torn down, and the structure that stands today was built. The original Mt. Vernon Christian Church became Bohon Christian in 1910. We’re now celebrating over a century of worship from this structure!
Bohon Christian Church is an independent Christian Church that seeks to be true to the original church described in the New Testament. We believe that salvation comes as a gift from God and the following aspects are essential to receive that gift…
Faith: Through faith we believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son and that He died on the cross and rose from the grave to save us from our sins and give us the gift of eternal life.
Repentance: Through a sincere desire to turn away from anything that displeases God and live according to His word and His will.
Confession: Through a public declaration of our faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.”
Baptism: Finally – we must identify ourselves with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus by being baptized in His name. We practice the original biblical form of baptism, which is immersion.
