The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church

The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church

Welcome to the official Web site of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, administered by the Communication & Information Technology (CIT) Connectional Department.

The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church Church, familiarly known as the CME Church, has a glorious and rich history!  The CME Church was organized December 16, 1870 in Jackson, Tennessee by 41 former slave members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.  The CME Church is a branch of Wesleyan Methodism founded and organized by John Wesley in England in 1844 and established in America as the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1784.

The CME Church celebrated its 149th anniversary on December 16, 2019.

The CME Church has more than 1.2 million members across the United States, and has missions and sister churches in Haiti, Jamaica and fourteen African nations.

The mission of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church is to be disciples of Jesus the Christ by serving individuals, communities and the world as the representative, loving presence of God and as witnesses to God’s salvation and grace.

The vision of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church is to be a transforming church for Jesus the Christ within a changing world.
