About Providence AME
Providence AME Church Mission
We exist to glorify God and to establish a loving community of people who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Through worship, prayer, bible study and friendship we seek to grow in understanding of God’s ways; to experience his love and to respond by serving the community in which we live.
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. At every level of the Connection and in every local church, the African Methodist Episcopal Church shall engage in carrying out the spirit of the original Free African Society, out of which the A.M.E. Church evolved: that is, to seek out and save the lost, and serve the needy through a continuing program of
(1) preaching the gospel,
(2) feeding the hungry,
(3) clothing the naked,
(4) housing the homeless,
(5) cheering the fallen,
(6) providing jobs for the jobless,
(7) administering to the needs of those in prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, asylums and mental institutions, senior citizens' homes; caring for the sick, the shut-in, the mentally and socially disturbed, and
(8) encouraging thrift and economic advancement.
