Welcome to the New Bethel A.M.E. Church website. We are very thankful you are interested in our church and our mission to serve God. We invite you to visit our church. Help us meet God’s calling to build his church, to save his people, to heal the sick, to serve our community, and to breakthrough racial, social and economic boundaries. We are a small but mighty church of God focused on making the world and each other’s lives a better place. Our church welcomes all people from every facet of life and diversity of gifts.
Our church’s roots are of the family of Methodist churches. We are part of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. The AME Church is a connectional organization. Each local church is a part of the larger connection. Methodism provides an orderly system of rules and regulations and places emphasis on a plain and simple gospel. Episcopal refers to the form of government under which the church operates. It means that the church is governed by Bishops, Presiding Elders, and Pastors. Pastors receive a yearly appointment to a charge (church), on the recommendation of the Presiding Elder and with the approval and final appointment of the Bishop. The pastor is in full charge of the Church and is an ex-official member of all boards, organizations and clubs of that Church. Our church is part of the Southwest Region of the 10th Episcopal District (Texas). Information on the 10th Episcopal District may be found at this website: http://www.10thdistrictame.org/.
