Our Mission:

"This team of servant-leaders will teach others to have fervent love for one another by using the precepts of the Gospel and by following the examples set by our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Love covers the multitude of sins and helps others discover God's plan and purpose in their lives." 1Peter 4:8

How to Become a Christian

THREE THINGS YOU MUST DO TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN

ACKNOWLEDGEmen_ministry
that you are a sinner

BELIEVE
that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for your sins, rose again on the third day, and is preparing a place for you in heaven if you accept his gift of salvation.

CONFESS
your sins, repent (turn away from them), and ask God to forgive you and to be Lord of your life.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

The basic creed of Reformed churches, as most familiarly known, is called the Apostles' Creed. It has received this title because of its great antiquity; it dates from very early times in the Church, a half century or so from the last writings of the New Testament.

The History of First CME Church

The Historical Chronology

In June of 1959, the Rt. Rev. F. L. Lewis, presiding Bishop of the ninth Episcopal District selected a Mission comprised of Bishop J. Claude Allen, Gary, Indiana and the Rev. N.S. Curry, editor of the Christian Index, Jackson, Tennessee to travel to Anchorage, Alaska and establish a church.

Interested individuals met on July 5, 1959 at the Pioneer Hall and Walter Bremond, Lillian Wells, George Anderson, and Ruby Dorough joined. The Hurts, Mary C. Steward, and Mrs. Nelly were also in attendance but they did not join. The church was officially organized and worship services were held at the Pioneer Hall until October 11, 1959 when the congregation held its first worship service in the property acquired at 401 East 12th Avenue (corner of East 12th Avenue and Denali Street).
