Mission & Purpose

The mission of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical needs of ALL PEOPLE by spreading Christ’s LIBERATING Gospel through word and deed.  At every level of the connection and in every local church, the AME church shall engage in carrying out the spirit of the Free African Society out of which the AME Church evolved:  that is, to seek out and save the lost and serve the needy through a continuing program of (1) preaching the gospel; (2) feeding the hungry; (3) clothing the naked; (4) housing the homeless; (5) cheering the fallen; (6) providing jobs for the jobless; (7) administering to the needs of those in prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, asylums, senior citizens’ homes; caring for the sick, the shut-in, the mentally and socially disturbed; and (8) encouraging thrift and economic advancement.
