Scripture of the Month

1 John 3:16-18

(16) This is how we know that love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. (17) If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? (18) Dear children, let us not love with or speech but with actions and in truth.

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.
