In his time on earth, Jesus Christ welcomed and valued children, pointing even to their simple faith as an example for older believers to imitate (Matthew 18:3). Perhaps his most quoted statement regarding children comes from Matthew 19:14, where he said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
At Shiloh we believe that God intends for both the family and the church as a whole to play a part in bringing children to Jesus. We recognize that families are called to bring God’s Word to bear upon all of life (Deuteronomy 11:18-19) and that God has appointed leaders for the purpose of setting an example of faithfulness for new believers to imitate (Hebrews 13:7). For these reasons and more, we lift up moms, dads, parents, grandparents, and other caregivers in prayer, and our ministry team seeks to make the most of the precious few hours we get to spend with the children each week.
Our goal is that children will love God, love the Word of God, and love the people of God – the church. We believe without question that God is raising up the next generation of servant-leaders, missionaries, preachers, teachers, and worshipers in our midst. In all of this we rest on the promise that God works in us and through us, as stated below in 1 Corinthians 3:7.
“So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.”
