New Members Ministry


New member classes give new members of Pennsylvania Avenue A.M.E. Zion Church a clear understanding of the significance of the new life in Christ as a member of the AME denomination and discipleship, and as a member of the Pennsylvania Avenue A.M.E. Zion Church.

They explain the responsibilities inherited because of the Christian experience and define what it means to become a member of God’s Body. By using God’s Word as the final authority, new members classes seek to emphasize the distinction between true conversion and church membership.
