Who We Are


Many faces, one faith.

We are a diverse group of believers – bankers, musicians, social workers, teachers, public servants, business owners, parents  – united by our shared faith in a loving God.

Today, the organized lay movement in the African Methodist Episcopal Church operates as a vital force for good because it is free, independent and unmotivated by any desire, motive or purpose other than the general welfare of African Methodism.

Our Mission

The objectives and purpose of the Lay Organization are outlined in its Constitution. The main objectives are stated in brief as follows:

To create a love and appreciation of the History and Principles of African Methodism.
Keep the memory of Richard Allen alive.
Respect Constituted Authority.
Stimulate and Educate the Laity in the Total Program of the Church.
Study the Discipline and learn the laws of the Church.
Encourage Financial Support of the Church's Program.
Teach and Practice Stewardship and work with the Youth to teach them Methodism.
These objectives can best be met when one works to understand the program of the church and relate the church to the World around us. Become involved in Social Action such that the church is then our Community - our Job - Our School, and everywhere that many assembles he carries the church with him.. . ."
