Ephesians 4:11-13

“11 It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,  12 to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up  13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

What we believe

  • God calls us to live a new, transformed life as we follow Jesus (holy and whole)
  • God calls us to be agents of change in our world (social justice)
  • God calls and gifts both men and women to all levels of leadership (we ordain women and are egalitarian)
  • Jesus offers His new life to all who will receive
  • The Holy Spirit is active today, and guides each follower of Jesus and His Church
  • We believe all people are equally created in the image of God, regardless of race, ethnicity, economic status, & gender

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.
