The social witness and ministry of AME believers around the world confirms our commitment to the struggle against oppression.
Born in the shadow of slavery, racial prejudice, and social injustice, the African Methodist Episcopal Church’s past has been a testimony to the power of a prophetic voice and the validity of a compassionate cry for mercy.
As true Christians, we have a primary task to invite people into relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We also equip believers to render service as an expression of their maturing relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to provide inspired ministry that fulfills the mission of Christ’s love in the world. Through this application of discipleship, we live accountably in faith and love.
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. The third day he arose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From that all powerful seat, we believe God shall come judge the all the world, living and dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church Universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
