In this paper, the sinc-Galerkin method is used for numerically solving a class of nonlinear differential equations with boundary conditions. The importance of this study is that sinc approximation of the nonlinear term is stated as a new theorem. The method introduced here is tested on some nonlinear problems and is shown to be a very efficient and powerful tool for obtaining approximate solutions of nonlinear ordinary differential equations.
