We're so glad you decided to check out Shiloh New Covenant Church online. We exist to glorify God, share the Good News and love of Jesus Christ, and tell others about all He has done!
At Shiloh you can encounter God, become part of a spiritual family, and be equipped and empowered to impact your world. We are a Bible-believing, non-denominational, Spirit-filled, charismatic church body.
Established in 1984, we have nearly 40 years of exceptional testimonies of seeing lives radically changed through encounters with God's Word and Holy Spirit. Visitors often remark on the love and warmth they experience here.
Our congregation gathers at 9:30am for Sunday School, followed by corporate prayer at 10am. From 10:30am - 12:30pm we enjoy God's presence through singing, Scripture-centered teaching, and Holy Spirit-led ministry.
We offer separate Bible study-and-discussion meetings for men and women on Monday evenings from 7 - 8:30pm, and hold additional gatherings throughout the year for men and women.
We meet for adult study each Wednesday evening from 7 – 8:30pm. In 2024 we are watching and discussing an in-depth video series on Kingdom Living and our identity in Christ, presented by a well-known Bible teacher.
Shiloh New Covenant Church is located five miles east of Cumberland on US Route 60 (Anderson Highway), across from C.F. Marion Trucking Company. Our address is:
665 Anderson Highway, Cumberland, VA 23040
We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.
We believe in the sacrificial death of our representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, Whose blood was shed to make propitiation for the sins of the whole world and whereby alone men and women are redeemed from the guilt and penalty of sin; and, in the necessity of the new birth as the work of God the Holy Spirit, to be obtained only by receiving Jesus Christ as Savior. We believe that Man’s justification is by grace alone through faith alone.
We believe God is good. He is a loving and patient Father. His works toward us are always good.
We believe in the infilling of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4 and the proper exercise of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, whereby the church and the individual are edified and strengthened for witness and service. The infilling of the Holy Spirit is an experience and blessing available to all believers and is essential to the living of the Christian life according to Eph. 5:18.
Our Core Values
Of all the values and virtues listed in scripture, love is the greatest and most powerful. God is love. Love defines His very nature and being. Love motivates all that God does. There is no higher pursuit than to know and experience the love of God and then to demonstrate it and share it with others. All of ministry and life is meant to flow from the place of love.
We live our lives empowered by God's grace. We are recipients of His unmerited favor, and it strengthens us to live by His life and provision. He provided for us what we could not achieve ourselves; because we have freely received, we can now freely give. We empower others by showing grace and forgiving sin. We call people up to live from who Christ has made them to be.
The path of honor is a path of life. To honor is to affix appropriate worth and value to someone. As we honor God, so we ought to honor each other that are made in His image. We are to esteem others even more highly than ourselves.
Jesus set before us the model for life and ministry. He did not consider who He was a hindrance to serve. It is who we are in Him that empowers us to serve others. Serving one another is the fruit of love and honor. It is when we serve that we are the most powerful and are able to influence all of society.
We have been given full access to the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit who dwells in us has equipped us for every good work. Signs and wonders follow our lives because of who He is in us. We do not live from a position of lack, but abundance. The Kingdom of God is not just words, it is power in the Holy Spirit.
It is the hungry that are filled! Our goal is to be satisfied with more of Him. We have tasted of the Lord and found that He is good. How then could we feed from what this world offers? We pursue the Lord; we passionately seek His face, which is the call of all who are called after His name.
We believe all Christians are called to live in demonstration of the power of God. We pour our lives into equipping others, fulfilling the call of the Ephesians 4 ministry gifts. We seek to empower and activate each believer into their place of ministry. We place an emphasis on training, not just teaching. Our goal is not knowledge but an encounter and a demonstration.
In obedience to Jesus' command, our call is to go. It is wrong to stay and wait for others to come. We take God’s Kingdom with us and demonstrate the saving, healing, and delivering power of Jesus with others. We treat those we reach out to with love and honor; they aren’t trophies to be obtained, but trophies to be redeemed. Because we love, we reach out beyond our comfort; laying down our lives to bring them Jesus.
We don’t need form or religion. We must have His life consuming our lives, the church, and all of society. The book of Acts is only the beginning. We seek the manifest presence and the Glory of the Lord filling the earth and every realm of society. Lives are transformed in His presence. We don’t need church, we need revival! The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of revival.
As a house we have been called to lead the way in a regional transformation. Our mission is to spread revival throughout the region by equipping, training, and sending forth an army of revivalists that effect change in every realm of society. This mission influences who we are and determines our focus and direction. The other ministries of Shiloh serve to support this commissioning from Heaven.
We believe it is the Lord’s will to heal all those who are oppressed of the devil. God does not make people sick. For this reason, we take risk and step out to contend for the sick and those who are in need of a miracle. We pursue breakthrough in those areas where we are not seeing regular occurrences of healing and miracles. Jesus has paid for the healing of the body, soul, and spirit of every person. We were not commanded to pray for the sick, but to heal them.
Our lives are to be expressions of worship; it is not just for Sunday morning anymore! We have been given access into the heavenly realm to come before Him in worship, pouring out our praise and love to the Godhead. As we press into His world, He invades ours, being enthroned on our praises. We place little value in singing songs; our pursuit is to encounter His manifest presence. We may study and pray now, but worship lasts for eternity.
We are spirit beings first. It is expected that we live from that realm. Our lives should not be directed from the earthly perspective. We are seated with Jesus Christ in heavenly places; we are to live from that world as a priority. God-encounters, angels, dreams, visions, translations, glory, manifestations of His presence, hearing, discerning, seeing, and other such biblical experiences are to be part of the normal Christian life.
We have freely received so much. As we live from the realization of His abundant provision, we cannot live as a people who withhold. Generosity reveals what God is really like. We are channels of blessing; we can’t afford to keep our hands closed.
