Our Church

The African Methodist Episcopal Church tradition dates back to 1787 when Richard Allen, Absalom Jones, and others established the church in Philadelphia.  

The word African means that the church was organized by people of African descent and heritage. It does not mean that the church was founded in Africa, or that it was for persons of African descent only.

The church’s roots are of the family of Methodist churches. Methodism provides an orderly system of rules and regulations and places emphasis on a plain and simple gospel.

Episcopal refers to the form of government under which the church operates. The chief executive and administrative officers of the African Methodist Episcopal denomination are the Bishops of the church.

The Benefits of The Life of a Giver

  2. "Giving draws me closer to God."
  3. "Giving breaks the grip of materialism."
  4. "Giving strengthens my faith."
  5. "Giving is an investment for eternity."
  6. "Giving blesses me in return."
  7. "Giving makes me happy."
