The Florida Baptist Witness has published an article about the new work the Shiloh Church JAX is beginning in Orange Park.

We will acquire the facilities owned by the Ridgewood Baptist Church, where Michael Clifford is the Pastor. The Ridgewood membership will not move. Prayerfully, leaders and members will join the new work we are calling Shiloh Church of Orange Park.

We are excited about the opportunity to expand our gospel witness into Orange Park. We are even more excited that a predominately Black church and a predominately White church will come together to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Praise God!

Over the next months, we are praying, planning, giving, doing outreach together, and having several join worship services. Shiloh Church of Orange Park will officially begin January 1, 2015.

Pray for us.

The Difference Jesus Makes

It’s the Lord’s Day! 

God willing, today I will complete my study of Ephesians 2 with a message entitled, “Three Pictures of the Church” (Ephesians 2:19-22).The point of the message is simple but important: To be in Christ is to be in the church.
