The Seventh Day Baptist Church of Shiloh is a member of the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference USA and Canada, LTD. located in Janesville, WI.
Seventh Day Baptists emerged as a part of the English Reformation, organizing their first church in London in the 1650s. That church, the Mill Yard Seventh Day Baptist Church, has continued for over 350 years.
The first Seventh Day Baptist church in America was established in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1671. Soon other early churches were established in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and it was from these three centers that the denomination grew.
A desire to expand the fellowship and to organize for missionary efforts led to the founding of the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference in 1802. Denominational work blossomed in the mid-1800s with the initiation of the first foreign mission, the beginning of publication efforts, and an especially strong interest in education.
