Who We Are

How We Started

Albion Free Methodist Church was founded in 1859 by B.T. Roberts, Loren Stiles, and their colleagues in ministry, who were pioneers in the struggle for the rights of all people to worship freely. They believed that religion should be first and foremost about preaching the gospel message to the poor, and that all people should be welcome to participate in services of worship. We still believe that worship is a gateway to God's presence and is open to all people, 

so we continue to endeavor

to break down barriers and build bridges

in order to make that happen.
