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.
At every level of the international, state, district and local operations, the African Methodist Episcopal Church engage in carrying out the spirit of the original Free African Society, from which the A.M.E. Church evolved. We seek out and save the lost and serve the needy through a continuing program of:
- Preaching the Gospel;
- Feeding the hungry;
- Clothing the naked;
- Housing the homeless;
- Cheering the fallen;
- Providing jobs for the jobless;
- Encouraging thrift and economic development;
- Administering to the needs of those in prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, asylums, mental institutions, senior citizens’ homes;
- Caring for the sick, the shut in, and mentally and socially disturbed.
