The A.M.E. Church shares Methodist theological roots with all denominations emanating from the Wesleyan liturgical tradition. African Methodism is distinct from its United Methodist roots as a movement founded on biblically congruent social inclusivity rather than any theological divide. As thus, the especial call of African Methodism is in social justice. At St. John, our ministries strive with the conviction that in God's Kingdom all of His creation is to be treated with respect and dignity and afforded the real opportunity to actualize his or her full potential in God's plan for his or her life. These are some of the current organizations, ministries and ministry groupings active at St. John.
