Our Beliefs

What we believe at The Well about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church.

Our Motto “God Our Father, Christ Our Redeemer, the Holy Spirit Our Comforter, Humankind Our Family” is a great summary of what the African Methodist Episcopal Church believes.

The AME Church at The Well is rooted in Methodism in terms of its basic doctrine and order of worship. To find the basic foundations of the beliefs of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, you need to look no further than The Apostles’ Creed and The Twenty Five Articles of Faith:

Apostle's Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only son our Lord
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead; and buried.
The third day he arose from the dead’
he ascended into heaven
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Church Universal,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body
and the life everlasting.

Amen.

Faith and Truth

The Basics

Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things.

He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.
