St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church
Philosophy of Ministry

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 peoples in the 21 st 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, The Spirituality Center seminaries, hospitals or social service centers, the AME Church has lived the gospel outside its sanctuaries. The mandate still informs its ministry, vision and mission in the Church’s third century existence.

The African Methodist Episcopal Church Motto

“God Our Father, Christ Our Redeemer,
the Holy Spirit Our Comforter, Humankind Our Family.”
