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.

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. At St. George M.E.C. Church, they received religiouof the Virgins restrictions and had to sit in different church sections during service. Later, the black members left the church and made a small congregation named Bethel Church. In 1807 and 1815, Allen was victorious 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 the churches and renamed the denomination, AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL.
