The Historical Preamble The African Methodist Episcopal Church, whose founders affirmed their humanity in the face of slavery and racism, stands in defense of disadvantaged and oppressed people in the 21st century. From the origins in the Free African Society through the involvement of the AME clergy and lay in the Civil War of the 1860's and the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960's, the AMEC has preached salvation from sin and deliverance from bondage. The mission expanded to others within the African Diasporas in the Americas, Africa, Caribbean, and Europe. Whether in schools, seminaries, hospitals or social service centers, the AME Church has lived the gospel outside its sanctuaries. This mandate sill informs its ministry, vision and mission in the Church's third century of existence.
1. The Mission The Mission of the AME Church is to minister to the social, spiritual, and physical development of all people.
2. The Vision At every level of the Connection and in every local church, the AME Church shall engage in carrying out the spirit of the original Free African Society, out of which the AME Church evolved: that is, to seek out and save the lost, and to serve the needy. It is also the duty of the Church to continue to encourage all members to become involved in all aspects of church training.
3. The Purposes The ultimate purposes are: (1) make available God's biblical principles, (2) spread Christ's liberating gospel, and (3) provide continuing programs which will enhance the entire social development of all people.
4. The Objectives In order to meet the needs at every level of the Connection and in every local church, the AME Church shall implement strategies to train all members in: (1) Christian discipleship, (2) Christian leadership, (3) current teaching methods and materials, (4) the history and significance of the AME Church, (5) God's biblical principles, and (6) social development to which all should be applied to daily living.

Greeting, Sermons, and Announcements,


Greetings in the Joy of Jesus Christ.

August is here! It’s truly amazing how time goes so quickly over half of the year is gone! This is a very busy time of the year. School bells have rung! Policies, rules, and procedures have been set for our children. Let’s encourage them to be prayerful, obedient, respectful, and positive!  

Every captain has a plan! God is the captain of the church (building) and the spiritual church— “you!”  In words of an old, good, soul-stirring song…Tis the Old Ship Of Zion—Step on board if you want to see Jesus…Ain’t no danger in God’s water! Get on board if you want to see Jesus! It has landed many of thousands. A king has a plan to lead his people while a general makes plans for his army. Pastors make plan for their congregations. Surely, God has a plan for you. In these troublesome times, it is impossible to predict and know what the next hour will bring, but God knows. Trust God. In the midst of darkness and confusion, God holds the key to understanding and guidance. Seek God’s will for your life! God is the Master Planner! God’s grace has brought you “safe” this far…and God’s grace will lead you home! Live passionately for God every day!

Much Love In Christ,

Millie Rambeau
