  • Notes 
    • from History of the Ione, Arkansas Baptist Church, by Willie B. Haddock Wileyand Clara Louise Haddock, noted 23 August 2004.


      Missionary Baptist Church at Shiloh


      In November of 1876 the church was reorganized and Elder W.V.McNeely
      submitted the articles of faith which read as follows:

      1. We believe that there is only one living and true God,Jehova, and that
      in the unity of the God-head there are three persons: THE FATHER, THE SON,
      AND THE HOLY GHOST.

      2. We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments arethe
      inspired word of God, constituting the only and all-sufficient standard of
      faith, doctrine, and practice.

      3. We believe that the election is the sovereign exercise of thateternal
      love, by which God has, according to his infinite wisdom, chosen his
      people to Christ, before the world was, and has pre-destined them, unto
      the adoption of children, through the santification of the spirit and
      belief of the true God, and doth keep them, by his power, through faith,
      unto salvation.

      4. We believe that man was created Holy, but by the wilfullviolation of
      the laws of his maker, he fell into a state of sinfulness and brought
      death upon his race, who being of natural decent in the unholy image of
      Adam, are children of wrath by nature, without redemption.

      5. We believe that we have been led by the Spirit of uod to receivethe
      Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour and on the profession of our faith,
      having been baptised in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy
      Spirit, do now in the presence of God and his assembly, most solomnly and
      joyfully enter into the covenant of this love with as one body in Christ.

      6. We engage, therfore, by the aid of the holy spirit, to walktogether in
      Christian love, to strive for the covenant of this church of knowledge,
      holiness, and comfort, to promote the prosperity and spirituality, to
      sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrine; to contribute
      cheerfully and regularly to the support of its ministry; the expense of
      the church, the relief of the poor, and the speaad of the gospel to all
      nations.

      7. We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions, toreligiously
      educate our children, and to seek the salvation of our kindred and
      acquaintances, to walk circumspectfully in the world, to be just in our
      dealings, faithful in our engagements, exemplary in our deportment, to
      avoid all tattling, back-biting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the
      sale and use of intoxicating drinks; and to be zealous in our efforts to
      advance the Kingdom of our Saviour.

      8. We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love,to
      remember each one in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress,
      to cultivate Christian sympathy and courtesy in speech, to be slow to
      offence, but always ready for reconciliations, and mindful of the rules of
      our Savior to serve the church without delay.

      9. We moreover, engage that when we remove from this place, we willas
      soon as possible unite with another church of like faith and order,
      wherein we can carry out the spirit of this covenant to the principles of
      God's word.



      The Church adopted the "Articles of Faith" and called W.V. McNeelyas
      pastor. He served the church in this position until July 1877. During his
      pastorage the church was known as the Missionary Baptist Church atShiloh

McNeely of near Nixa went over Sunday to visit his son John in Greene County. When near his son's, his horse became frightened and Mr. McNeely jumped off without apparent injury. With help of a passing neighbor the horse, which had become entangled in a barbed-wire fence was caught and together they walked on to the house. About three minutes after he had been seated, Mr. McNeely dropped from his chair dead, supposed to be from heart failure. He was some 60 to 70 years old and one of the noted Baptist ministers of this section.
