For more than 90 years, the New Prospect Baptist Church has been serving the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the residents of Greater Cincinnati. The congregation was born in 1919, when Deacon E.A. Bentley organized New Prospect Baptist Church with nine other believers.
Over the years, its main focus has been and is on youth and seniors.
In 2010, the New Prospect Baptist Church embarked on a once-in-a-generation mission: The building of a new worship center in Over-the-Rhine and the restoration of the former Jewish Community Center in the heart of the Roselawn Community.
