Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. – Colossians 4:2 January 11-18 is Prayer Emphasis Week at the Shiloh Church. Our goal is to begin the year giving thanks, making confession, submitting our lives, offering petitions, and interceding for one another. In our worship services yesterday, members filled out prayer cards and […]
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness! – Psalm 115:1 Yesterday marked the official launch of the Shiloh Church of Orange Park. The Shiloh Church is now one church in two locations. The first Sunday of 2015 marked […]
We believe it happens after prayer! So as we approach the launch of Shiloh Church of Orange Park, we commit to 31 days of intercessory prayer for this new work. Each member of the Shiloh Church is asked to send time daily during the 31 days of December to cover Shiloh OP in believing prayer. […]
The Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church is becoming one church in two locations. For several years, we have prayed about planting a church in Jacksonville. As we prayed, we were increasingly drawn to Orange Park, southwest of our downtown location. We entered 2014 with plans to plant in Orange Park. One of our pastors would lead […]
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.

Easter Sunday 2014, before I gave the benediction at the end of the worship service at the Shiloh Church, I took a few minutes to point out that I was preaching for a new pulpit desk. Many in the congregation did not notice anything different. But to say I was excited is an understatement. More than […]
On July 30, 2008, the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville met to call a new pastor. I was one of two names to be considered that Wednesday night. I had mixed emotions. First all of, the momentum was moving toward me being called to Shiloh. Yet I had been in this situation before. And […]
TODAY’S SERMON: “What It Means To Trust In God” (Psalm 27)
It’s the Lord’s Day!
Today, I plan to end our 2014 Summer Psalm Series at the Shiloh Church with a message from Psalm 27, entitled, “What it Means to Trust in God.” The point of the message is that God is worthy of your trust in every situation. Specifically, you can trust God in the good days (27:1-6) and in the bad days (27:7-14).
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1 (ESV)
Join us for worship at the Shiloh Church at 7:45 or 10:30 AM (EST). Both services will be live streamed.
