Shiloh is a Living Word Fellowship church and conference center located in Kalona, Iowa. Since its construction in the mid-1970s it has been the home of a community church founded on the belief that the Bible is the inspired word of God and is living and active through Christ's involvement in the life of every believer. We are a family-oriented, energetic church, emphasizing the importance of all age groups in our relationships and activities.

In addition, we host events for all of the churches in The Living Word Fellowship including an annual summer conference and youth programs.

We welcome you to visit our services or to contact one of our pastors if you have any further questions.
