The Mission of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and environmental needs of all people by spreading Christ's liberating gospel through word and deed. Further, 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

  administering to the needs of those in prisons, hospitals,
nursing homes, asylums, and mental institutions, and senior citizen's homes

  housing the homeless

  cheering the fallen

  providing jobs for the jobless
