History of Greater St. James



Greetings from the Greater Saint James African Methodist Episcopal Church of Lake City, SC. Thank you for taking the time to visit Greater Saint James African Methodist Episcopal Church website. Please view our website in an effort to become more acquainted with the Greater Saint James Church family. We have documented the origination of the African Methodist Episcopal Church so that you may become more familiar with our church. We have designed an affirmation of faith page that outlines our beliefs and commitments as Christians. Our church has a rich history that you can learn more about on the History of Greater Saint James page.

The African Methodist Episcopal Church is well organized and structured. Our church is faithful to and sensitive to our heritage as people of African Diaspora. We have a clear and spirit filled system of government. We emphasize education as an element of spirituality. We have a commitment to self-sufficiency and a commitment to the pursuit of freedom, justice and equality.

It is our hope that after you learned more about us you will want to come and worship with us. We would love for you to come and visit us during any of our worship experiences. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
