About Us - Our Name

'African' means that the church was organized by people of African descent and heritage. It does not mean that the church was founded in Africa, or that it was for persons of African descent only.  The church's roots are of the family of Methodist churches.
'Methodism' provides an orderly system of rules and regulations and places emphasis on a plain and simple gospel. 
'Episcopal' refers to the form of government under which the church operates. The chief executive and administrative officers of the African Methodist Episcopal denomination are the elected Bishops of the denomination.
