Random information on the term “AME”:
The African Methodist Episcopal Church, usually called the A.M.E. Church, is a predominantly African-American Methodist denomination based in the United States. It is the oldest independent Protestant denomination founded by black people in the world. It was founded by the Rt. Rev. Richard Allen and Absalom Jones in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1816 from several black Methodist congregations in the mid-Atlantic area that wanted independence from white Methodists. Allen was consecrated its first bishop in 1816. It began with 8 clergy and 5 churches, and by 1846 had grown to 176 clergy, 296 churches, and 17,375 members. The 20,000 members in 1856 were located primarily in the North. AME national membership (including probationers and preachers) jumped from 70,000 in 1866 to 207,000 in 1876.
“God Our Father, Christ Our Redeemer, the Holy Spirit Our Comforter, Humankind Our Family”
Derived from Bishop Daniel Alexander Payne’s original motto “God our Father, Christ our Redeemer, Man our Brother”, which served as the AME Church motto until the 2008 General Conference, when the current motto was officially adopted.
