Allen Temple A.M.E. Church

Also known as the A.M.E. Church for short, our denomination is Methodist concerning its fundamental doctrine and order of worship. It was born, through adversity, of the Methodist church and to this day does not differ in any significant way from what all Methodists believe. 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. visit

Our Mission

Our mission is to connect people to God, people to people, and people to the community.

At Allen Temple A.M.E. Church it's our mission to help you explore your relationship with God and develop meaningful relationships in your family life. We invite you to join us each Sunday to experience the warmth of faith and the strength of our community. I look forward to seeing you @ The Temple!

Jeff Cooper, Pastor
