First AME Church Of Manassas
10313 S Grant Ave, Manassas, VA 20110
Our focus this conference year is Equipping Gods People for Gods Work. We will continue to Teach Gods Word, Fellowship Beyond Ourselves, Worship God in Spirit and Truth, and Evangelize to tell others about the love and good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..Our Operative scripture is Ephesians 4:11-16,The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints, for the work of ministry, for the building up of the Body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ.Our denomination is a member of the Methodist family of Churches and as such we do not differ in any major way from what all Methodist believe. The A.M.E. Church, however, was established not on account of any doctrinal difference, but on account of unchristian practices which limited and even dehumanized people of African descent. The two great historic documents which are the basis of what we believe are The Apostles' Creed and The Twenty-Five Articles of Religion.
