Welcome to John Wesley A.M.E. Zion Church! Whether you are here for the first time or visit periodically, you are most welcome. John Wesley Church is a Christian community called to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry, to edify the body of Christ, thereby fulfilling the great commission as mandated by the Lord Jesus Christ. While we are not a perfect church, we have been growing and developing the nature of God's Love, God's Grace, and God's Word for almost 100 years.
