WHAT WE BELIEVE
we believe, through Jesus Christ, in building transformational communities by connecting people to God, so they can find their purpose, and connecting people to others, so they can fulfill their purpose.
we are people who are at the crossroads of life, coming together in a place where faith and life merge.
at this place
Crossroads is apart of a connectional congregation spanning the globe in over 50 countries. Our reach through the African Methodist Episcopal Church allows Christ message of liberation, justice, and love to span across the nations while reaching millions.
The 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.
Also known as the A.M.E. Church for short, the denomination is Methodist in terms of its basic doctrine and order of worship. It was born, through adversity, of the Methodist church and to this day does not differ in any major way from what all Methodists believe. The split from the main branch of the Methodist Church was not a result of doctrinal differences but rather the result of a time period that was marked by man’s intolerance of his fellow man, based on the color of his skin. It was a time of slavery, oppression and the dehumanization of people of African descent and many of these un-Christian practices were brought into the church, forcing Richard Allen and a group of fellow worshippers of color to form a splinter denomination of the Methodist Church. 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 Religion.
