The Mission of the Church
The mission of Saint James African Methodist Episcopal Church is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental needs of all people by spreading the liberating gospel of Jesus Christ through word and deed. In doing so, Saint James A.M.E. Church will promote stewardship as the Christian lifestyle. The Lord has wonderfully blessed Saint James A.M.E. Church. We realize that “to whom much is given, much is required.”(Luke 12:48) So our commitment to stewardship is our response to God’s Grace. There is an inseparable relationship between stewardship and spirituality. Stewardship is a standard of obedience and a measure of faith. To further illuminate the commitment of stewardship, Saint James A.M.E. Church embraces the spirit of African Methodism to seek out and save the lost by (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/mental institutions, senior citizens’ homes; hospitals, those shut-in, and/or mentally and socially disturbed, as well as (8) encouraging thrift and economic advancement. As stewards, we are accountable for our time, talents, gifts, and money; all of which we must use for the honor and glorification of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Stewardship is a necessity to carry out the great commission of building God’s Kingdom. We invite you to partner with us by joining our Church and commiting to a lifestyle of stewardship and service to God’s people.
