The African Methodist Episcopal Church
Church: Because that what we are in every sense of the word.
We offer Understanding, Worship, and deeper self-worth, Fellowship and a place to belong, Service to you and others, and Pastoral care meeting the needs of our community.
Episcopal: The word “Episcopal” refers to the form of government under which our church operates where the chief executive and administrative officers of our dominion are our bishops.
Methodist: Our church is a member of the Methodist family. We emphasis upon plain and simple gospel and upon an orderly system of rules and regulations
African: The word African was chosen by our founders who organized the church, 215 years ago in 1787. It reminds us of the struggle that was involved in our birth. That in a time when “black people” were thought of as less than human, a group of young black men ‘CAME TOGETHER’, a miracle by itself, and fought against oppression and segregation in the church. We keep it to remind us of what is possible, that the Lord strength is made perfect in weakness and it does not matter what besets us what problem, what oppression, whatever comes our way we can do all things through Christ Jesus.
God our Father, Christ our Redeemer, The Holy Spirit our comforter, Humankind our Family.
The African Methodist Episcopal church has its doctrinal beliefs enshrined in the following summarized documents of Christian belief:
- The twenty-five articles of religion.
- The Catechism of Faith.
- The Apostle’s Creed.
These documents summarize our concept of what the Canonical scriptures of the Holy Bible say about salvation and other issues pertinent to fleeing the wrath to come.
