Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church is a group of baptized believers who believe in the Triune God. One God with three personalities: God the Father, God the Son (Word) and God the Holy Spirit. These three personalities are also called the Godhead. (1 John 5:7)
The word “bible” does not occur in the Bible. It comes from the Greek word “biblia” (books), which means a collection of books. The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is called the revelation of God. It is the act of God whereby He gives us knowledge about Himself and His work that we could not otherwise have known.
It was written by human authors under the direct supervision and supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. When they were writing the Word of God, no mistakes were included. God has made it very clear that He is speaking through this Book. It is a book that communicates life to you.
We are a church that is dedicated to God’s Word. We believe that God is immutable which is unchangeable (Hebrews 6:18) and the written Word of God is His authority, will and purpose for humanity. And the Word of God is not to be compromised because of a changing society.
THE DOCTRINE OF JESUS CHRIST
As believers of Christ, it is very important and essential that you know who He is. Your faith, salvation and your eternal security rests upon – who He is. Too many Christians have accepted Him as their Lord and Savior, but do not know who He is. The definition of Christianity is accepting Him as both Lord and Savior.
“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” -John 8:24
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” -Romans 10:9
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” -Ephesians 2:8-9
Nothing shows the grace of God so much as the fact that God provided for our salvation even though we were dead in sin. Salvation is wrapped up in Jesus Christ. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” -John 14:6
The nature of man is sinful and contrary to God’s will. God offered us an escape plan. He did not have to, but He did because He loved us, and He wanted to. That is “grace” and that is what saved us from eternal Judgment.
Man was created to live forever. He will live forever in one or two places. Man will either dwell with God in Heaven, through the forgiveness of his sins and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, or he will exist forever in Hell, eternally separated from God. To receive Jesus into one’s heart produces salvation that will guarantee that the believer will spend eternity in Heaven. Heaven and Hell are the only places of eternal existence. -Psalm 9:17; Daniel 12:2; Luke 16:19-31; Revelation 20:15
1) God the Father is God the author, the originator of all that exist. It was in His mind, first, that all took shape.
2) God the Son, our Savior is God the artist, the Creator of all that exist. He brought into being all that had been originally formulated in His Father’s mind.
3) God the Holy Spirit is God the agent who presents these facts to both our mind and our spiritual understanding so that they become both real and relative to us as individuals.
