(37) Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ (38) This is the first and greatest commandment. (39) And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (40) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


African Methodist Episcopal Church

The African Methodist Episcopal Church (A.M.E.) is a predominantly African-American Methodist domination based in the United States. It was founded by the Rev. Richard Allen in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1816 from several black Methodist congregations in the mid-Atlantic area that wanted independence from white Methodists.

  • The word “AFRICAN” identifies that it was organized by people of African descent. It was not made just for the people of African descents. All races are welcome to the church.


  • The word “METHODIST” identifies that the church’s roots are in the Methodist Church. After establishing A.M.E. churches, the Methodist form of worship continued.


  • The word “EPISCOPAL” identifies  the form of government which the church operates. The leaders of the A.M.E  Church are Bishops.


A.M.E Apostles’ Creed

I 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 sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church Universal, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. AMEN


A.M.E. History

With the leadership from Richard Allen, the A.M.E. church was instituted in Philadelphia, PA in 1787. Allen was accepted as a preacher, but he was limited to black congregations. At St. George M.E.C. Church, blacks received church restrictions. They had to sit in different church sections during service when more blacks attended, and they were pulled up from their knees while praying. Later, the black members left the church and made an African congregation

Richard Allen and others created the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in 1793. In 1807 and 1815, Allen was successful when he sued in the Pennsylvania courts because other black Methodists in other middle Atlantic communities received racism and other church problems. In Philadelphia in 1916, Richard Allen meet with other churches and renamed the denomination the AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 

They started having 5 churches. Currently, the A.M.E. Church has 20 districts in 39 countries which are located in 5 continents.


Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks (Feb. 4, 1913 – Oct. 24, 2005) was a major activist in the Civil Rights Movement and she was named, “The First Lady of Civil Rights” and “The Mother of the Freedom Movement”. She is mostly know of her refusal, on December 1, 1955, to give up her bus seat to a white man and move back further in the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was later arrested. Because of her courage, blacks started a boycott on the city bus line for 381 days. This got national attention on civil rights.  In June 1956, the federal district court ruled that bus segregation was unconstitutional. In November 1956, the U.S. Supreme Court changed laws related with public bus rights.    

She was raised up with her family as a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. She continued to be an A.M.E. member until her death.
