History of New Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church

“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:19-20.


“He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.” Luke 6:48.


Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church was organized in 1938 on Northwest 18th Avenue and 62nd Street under the leadership of Rev. L. Wallace and the late Moderator Rev. J. I. Ross, presiding. Four other members were present. The late Sis. Nealy Sheffield was among the members. At that location, they labored and toiled for three years, and the membership grew.


In 1941, the church moved to a wooden building at 1395 N. W. 69th Street. The late Dea. Albert Jones and the late Mother Mollie Jones united with the church. (Mother Mollie Jones passed away on March 23, 1996).


In 1942, Rev. Wallace resigned. Rev. A. M. Griffin was called and installed as our spiritual leader and served us well. Under his leadership he ordained Deacons:

Willie Roberson Horrace Ross Emmitt Ross Eddie McClain
Walter Butler British Tharpe Stafford Matchett
Charles Foster Leroy Brooks Artis Perkin



Rev. Griffin organized the following Ministries: Deacons Board, Trustee Board, Choirs #1 and #2, Junior Choir, Pastor’s Board, and Willing Workers’ Club.  Shortly after 1944, under Rev. Griffin’s leadership, Usher Ministry # 1 was organized with (6) ushers. Thelma Williams was its President.


Due to the growth and progress of the membership, the old building was demolished and a new sanctuary was erected. During that time, we worshipped with Antioch Missionary Baptist Church and various other churches in the area while our new sanctuary was under construction.


In 1960, we marched back into our new sanctuary.  At that time, Rev. Griffin changed the name from; Shiloh Baptist Church; to New Shiloh Baptist Church. The body of the church continued to multiply under Rev. Griffin’s administration. The following ministers and deacons served under him:


Elder Walter Butler Emmitt Ross Joe Wilmont James P. Walden
Robert Brown Robert Daniel F. L. Johnson


Albert Jones Clifford Brown Tommie Neal
James McDaniel Thomas Montgomery George Davis
Alfonso Harmon Amos Allen Freeman Davis (were added)



On July 3, 1973, the Lord called Pastor A. M. Griffin home from labor to reward. He was a Moses leading God’s people and he had labored untiringly for 31 years. Again, the membership was without a pastor for four months. Deacon Willie Roberson, Chairman of the Deacons and the other members of the Deacons Board labored diligently until December 2, 1973.


The Lord sent us a Joshua to continue leading His people. Rev. Arthur Jackson, Jr. was installed as Pastor on February 24, 1974. Under his leadership, the membership grew by leaps and bounds. Again, the sanctuary was too small. The Pastor, Deacons, and membership agreed to purchase another building.


On January 23, 1983, we marched into our new sanctuary, at 1350 N.W. 95th St. The very next year: that building was destroyed by fire on September 7, 1984, at 1:00 a.m. When Sis. Lillie Linder called *Deacon Daniel Williams, Chairman of the Deacons Board, to let him know that our church was burning; he called Pastor Jackson, who was in California attending the National Baptist Convention. Pastor Jackson caught the next flight out to Miami to tell his people, “We’ll Rise Again!”  We have been toiling for 62 years. We have had much heartache but with the help of a gracious God, we have made it. This church has stood the test of the ages and we have come out victoriously. The church is the life of any community. It gives to men a desire to live life at its best.


Through God’s direction another sanctuary was constructed on the same grounds, and we marched into our new sanctuary on March 22, 1987.  God continued to bless us with more laborers for His vineyard. Under the leadership of Rev. Arthur Jackson, Jr. the church progressed, and the ministries increased tremendously. Rev. Jackson, Jr. organized and implemented many auxiliaries. Such as: Usher Board #3 and #4, Voices of Shiloh, Hospitality Ministry, Budget Committee, Leadership Workshops, Orientation classes for all new -members, Early Morning First Fellowship Program, Out-Reach Crusaders, Bus Ministry, Convalescent Home Ministry, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and a full-time church staff.   The following Deacons were ordained:

What We Believe

bible_03We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions shall be tried.

bible_03We believe that the Scriptures teach that there is one and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and live; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, The Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct by harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (John 4:24; Matt 28:19).

bible_03We believe the Scriptures teach that Man was created in holiness, under the law of his Maker; but by voluntary transgression fell from that holy and happy stat; in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint but by choice; being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by law of God, positively inclined to evil, and therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin, without defense or excuse. (Gen. 1:27; Gen. 3:6-24).

bible_03We believe that the Scriptures teach that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel; that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by cordial, penitent and obedient faith; and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth, but his own determined depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel; which rejection involves him in an aggravated condemnation.

bible_03We believe the Scriptures teach that in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated, or born again; that regeneration consists in giving a holy disposition to the mind; that it is effected in a manner above our comprehension by the power of the Holy Spirit, in connection with divine truth, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the Gospel; and that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith, and newness of life.

bible_03We believe the Scriptures teach that repentance and faith are sacred duties, and also inseparable graces, wrought in our souls by the regenerating Spirit of God; whereby being deeply convinced of our guilt, danger, and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we turn to God with unfeigned Contrition, confession, and supplication for mercy; at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as our prophet, priest, and king, and relying on him alone as the only and all-sufficient Saviour.

bible_03We believe the Scriptures teach that election is the eternal purpose of God, according to which he graciously regenerates, sanctifies and saves sinners; that being perfectly consistent with the free agency of man, it comprehends all the means in connection with the end; that it its a most glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness, being infinitely free, wise, holy and unchangeable; that it utterly excludes boasting and promotes humility, love, prayer, praise, trust in God, and active imitation of his free mercy; that it encourages the use of means in the highest degree; that it may be ascertained by its effects in all who truly believe the Gospel; that it is the foundation of Christian assurance; and that to ascertain it with regard to ourselves demands and deserves the utmost diligence.

bible_03We believe the Scriptures teach that Sanctification is the process by which, according to the will of God, we are made partakers of his holiness; that it is a progressive work; that it is begun in regeneration; and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, the Sealer and Comforter, in the continual use of the appointed means – especially the work of God, self-examination, self-denial, watchfulness, and prayer.
