Shiloh United School Statement of Faith
  1. God

    • Jesus Christ of Nazareth came in human flesh, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, did many miracles restoring people back to their original design, gave us a model of how to live, and promised we would do more miracles than He did.

    • He died a brutal death on the cross taking all of our sin upon himself and with his death he paid the penalty for our sin, thus providing us a way to be reconciled with God.

    • He physically rose from the dead on the third day, was seen by over 500 people and ascended to the right hand of God the Father in heaven.

    • His return is definite and He will judge the living and the dead.

    • Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit make up the Godhead. They are distinctly three in function and yet they are one in a perfect unity so that we can say “God is one.” Jesus said “I and my Father are one”(John 10:30), and “If you have seen me you have seen the Father” (John 14:9).

    • If you seek God with all your heart, you will definitely find Him.

  2. The enemy

    • The enemy, satan, desired to be worshiped, was cast out of heaven, and deceived Adam and Eve, encouraging them to disobey God.

    • Disobedience to God was the original sin and sin has been part of human nature ever since.

    • The enemy desires to keep people from God, deceiving them throughout their lives, keeping them from the original design God has for them, and captivates people to do his will and further his purposes.

    • The enemy’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy.

  3. Humans

    • Knowledge of God, and his Words in the Bible, reveals the holy standard for life we were designed for.

    • Sin came into the world when Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s word, and we have had a sinful nature ever since. This sin has separated us from the relationship with God we were meant to have, and to be united with God we must be reconciled.

    • Reconciliation between us and God occurs when we individually confess that we have sinned, repent for our sin, believe in our heart that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is sufficient to pay for sin. At this point reconciliation is complete and sanctification begins. The proof of this reconciliation is our desire to obey God and follow Him.

    • As we embrace the journey of sanctification, we understand that we are perfect in our position as sons and daughters of God. We respond to the love of God by loving Him, obeying Him and seeking honor and worship Him in every aspect of our life.

  4. Bible

    • The Bible is the source of truth. It is scripture that has been given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that people who have been reconciled to God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

  5. Unity

    • Unity begins with our love for God. When we keep him in focus we have hope for unity.

    • We seek to love others as we love ourselves.

    • We honor what God is doing locally, regionally and globally in our time and seek to play our part in history to continue the growth of the Kingdom of God which is ever expanding.

    • Reconciliation is made complete when we are united to God, united with each other, and our community is reconciled to God and His purposes.

    • We believe discipleship is complete when home, church, and school work together to provide a united community for children to grow in.
