The mission of Walton Grove AME Zion Church is consistent with the mission of The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. And that is to increase our love for God and to help meet the needs of humankind by “Loving God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with our entire mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.” Implicit in this statement is the belief that the church should have a positive relationship to humankind horizontally. We will strive to instill in the hearts and minds of every man, woman, boy, and girl that Jesus Christ is Lord and will remain the primary focus of this in sharing the good news of the gospel.
Our Vision: The Vision has not changed! Therefore, we begin a new conference year with a new pastor whose vison to make Disciples is not new. For it is what God commands: to Love God and to love and meet the needs of the people through the ministries of the church.
Jesus commands us in In Matt 22:37-39, to “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart… ‘This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.
Therefore: we will Love God… Love his People……Love the Nation
We will with the help of God do as Jesus commands in Matthew 28:19- Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey everything that [Jesus] have commanded [us].
We will make Jesus the center of everything we do. From our praise and worship, our teaching, our preaching, our stewardship and our fellowship.
