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.

A Morning Prayer by John R.W. Stott
Good morning heavenly Father, good morning Lord Jesus, good morning Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, I worship you as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. Lord Jesus, I worship you, Savior and Lord of the world. Holy Spirit I worship you, Sanctifier of the people of God. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more. Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you. Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Holy, blessed, and glorious Trinity, three Persons in one God, have mercy upon me. Amen.
People are starving for the greatness of God. But most of them would not give this diagnosis of their troubled lives. The majesty of God is an unknown cure. There are far more popular prescriptions on the market, but the benefit of any other remedy is brief and shallow. Preaching that does not have the aroma of God’s greatness may entertain for a season, but it not tough the hidden cry of the soul: “Show me thy glory!” – John Piper
Life and death and eternity and worlds unknown may hang on the preaching and hearing of one sermon. – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
