The mission of St. John AME Church is to take things that are true, whatever honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, and virtue, and make these things a reality, not only in our church, but also in our community. We will accomplish this by taking the ministry of our Lord, Jesus Christ, to the people.
God has called us to stand in the gaps of our communities and repair the broken places, heal the sick, love the unlovable and to open the doors of those that are held in bondage.
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall b with you. (Phil. 4:8-9)
St. John is a visionary for the Lord with the goals and motto of becoming "The Preferred Church"!!!
God has called us to reach the masses with the message of hope, love, peace, forgiveness and restoration. We believe that we are our brother’s keeper and are responsible for the well being of each other. To the young, old, weak, strong sick and shut in to the well and shut out, they are our brothers and sisters and we are held accountable by God.
We are committed to the seven points ministry handed down to the Second District by our Bishop the Rt. Reverend Adam J. Richardson, Presiding Prelate.
If we work as a unit pulling together our resources and collective minds, talents and graces there is nothing we can accomplish together with God on our side.
May God bless all of you who will endeavor to make this vision a reality.
