Shiloh is an evangelical United Methodist Church. Methodists started as a revival movement led by John Wesley in England which spread to Colonial America. We are a part of mainline Christianity, sharing with Christians the faith handed down in the Scriptures and the Apostles Creed. The Confession of Faith below spells out our view on key ideas of the Christian faith. The particular emphases of Methodists include a combination of heartfelt faith in Christ for salvation combined with a life of Christian action to glorify God in gratitude for what He has done for us. We believe in cooperating with Christians of other denominations as a part of the wider Kingdom of God. We do not re-baptize because God's commitment to us goes beyond human denominations and divisions. You can read more about the faith we share with other Christians as well as our distinctive beliefs below.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day He rose from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
