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

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.
