Love • Serve • Obey
A vision of love
At Shiloh Church we strive to have an intimate relationship with God and one another so that we are able to reach our community with the love of Christ
More than just a belief, it's a lifestyle
Our vision is founded on the scriptures of Matthew 28:18-20 and Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
To achieve our God-given vision we believe that prayer, evangelism, servanthood and discipleship are essential in helping us ensure that the community around us experiences God’s love. Our vision is centred around these four pillars.
We believe that it is through prayer that we truly learn who God is and who we are in Christ. It allows us to offer up worship to God and as we pray, we engage in a daily love relationship with God. As we bring our needs, the needs of our community and those of our nation to Him we allow the Holy Spirit to transform us, to empower us and reveal to us His specific strategies for fulfilling the great Commission.
Through evangelism, we seek to make known the glory and love of God and the Lord Jesus Christ to the world through discovery groups and kingdom groups, verbal proclamations, social media and technology.
We furthermore believe in the importance and impact of the arts as well as acts of compassion and service in effecting change.
It is through servanthood that we aim to show the world the character and love of our Lord Jesus Christ and as a church, we want to serve our business community, our families and our city.
It is through serving that we are equipped to support and help bring kingdom change in and around us.
Discipleship is accomplished through building relationships with and caring for one another. Through training in godliness and good works, we become mature disciples engaged in our four-fold mission. We believe in training disciples to train others and we engage in this mission with the fruit of the Spirit, with humility and total dependence on God. It is through co-operation with other churches and ministries in the body of Christ that we work toward unity in all that we do.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

We believe in our children's spirtual growth
Love in Motion is our children’s ministry and forms part of our Sunday morning service. We value our children and desire to see them become true disciples and followers of the Lord. We give our children the freedom to be kids in church and believe we can learn just as much from them as they can from us.
The Love in Motion teachers are passionate about sharing the gospel with our kids and follow a set curriculum to ensure the teachings align with our mission and vision.
- Discipling kids to worship God along with parents in church
- Discover God and His Word and how to practically apply it
- Book of remembrance: Writing down what they pray for and how God answers their prayers
- Keep each other accountable to love, serve and obey
- Move in the gifts of the Spirit as God leads
Giving into the Kingdom
We believe in God’s principle of giving, and that “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9:7
