Baptism - is a sacrament or ceremony in which a person is anointed with water to symbolize being brought into the community of faith. The African Methodist Episcopal Church recognizes three methods of baptism, they are pouring, sprinkling and immersion.


Communion - is a sacrament in which participants eat bread and drink wine to show that they continue to take part of Christ's redeeming resurrection by symbolically taking part is the representation of His body (the bread) and blood (the juice).


The African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded by Bishop Richard Allen 1787. His journey began when he and his family was on a plantation owned by Benjamin Chew and later separated from his family, and sold to Mr. Stokely. Richard Allen became fond of the teachings of the Methodist denomination. He and Absalom Jones were licensed lay preachers 1784 in the St. George's Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During their ministry Allen and Jones were allowed to preach but it was 5:00 o'clock in the morning. The black worshipers were allowed to sit amongst others in the congregation until the Christmas Conference. That Conference in the Methodist Episcopal changed the way Richard Allen and other blacks worshiped at St. George's M.E. Church. A trustee met the black worshipers at the door and instructed them to sit in the balcony, and when it was time to pray they were to come all together and kneel at the altar.


However, one day while Richard Allen and others were praying at the altar they were 'pulled off their knees' in spite of the plea of Absalom Jones and others to the trustees at the church, they were snatched off their knees while praying to God. Therefore, Richard Allen and others marched out of St. George's to go seek a place to worship God freely. Richard Allen was an entrepreneur, and had a blacksmith shop where he made tools, wheels and equipment to use daily. In spite of the new environment in worshiping in a blacksmith shop, Richard Allen used his daily work station as an anvil (awkward shaped steel) as his first pulpit in which the bible was placed as he preached to blacks about a liberating God.


As Bishop Richard Allen was trying to establish the church, 'the walkout' was only the beginning of the hard road ahead in being independent in worshiping God. His love for the Methodist system resonated in his spirit, therefore he wanted to establish the new church as Methodist. Several community leaders helped Bishop Allen, names such as Dr. Benjamin Rush and Mr. Robert Ralston used their influence to help them along the way. It is commonly said that the A.M.E. Church is the only church that was founded due to Social Justice. Many things have changed but many things have remained the same. The A.M.E. Church is established all-over the world making a differences of the lives of God's people and the communities in which live.


The Root of Methodism reaches deep for many years of the Protestant movements before the various Methodist sects were founded. John Wesley is mostly credited for being the originator/founder of the Methodist Church but many scholars have argued this point. Nevertheless, the flavor of Methodism is kindly accredited to John Wesley. It's documented that he had a 'warmest in his heart' when he attended a camp meeting with the Arminianians after his fall out with the Roman Catholic Church. This spiritual awakening of the heart he acknowledged it was the Holy Spirit. From this spiritual experience and the upbringing knowledge of both his parents, John Wesley was convinced that the Lord wants his church to following what the the Bible states "Let all things be done decently and in order." -- I Corinthians 14:40 Also, John Wesley brought with him other practices he experienced in other denominations that he was once part of. He believed as Methodist we were called to help the poor and homeless through mission work but work alone did not save! Wesley believed that "people can only be saved through faith in Jesus Christ, not by any other acts of redemption such as good deeds."
