St. James African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Chicago, Illinois, is a gathering of Christians affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal church. We hope that you will stop by and worship with us if you are in the area. This site is designed to give you information about our church, our members, and our staff, as well as provide you with information on how to contact us. 

We want to meet you where you are and hopefully help you grow in a meaningful relationship with God, through Jesus. We are people who struggle and hurt as we face the daily pressures of life. We are also people who are experiencing the life and joy of Jesus Christ in our daily lives. We would like nothing more than to have you join us as we seek, learn, and grow together in our spiritual walks with God. 

Whether you are seeking God, curious about our fellowship, or attend our worship service regularly, there is something for you here. Our church exists to minister to the real needs of people with the authentic love of Jesus Christ!  We invite you to experience the genuine worship, encouraging messages, friendly people, and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of our community. We hope you will come to worship, study, and celebrate with us often. And, if you do not have a church home, we would be honored to have you consider becoming a part of our fellowship. 

If you are already a member of our church, we hope you will take advantage of some of the resources and tools available to you. In addition, information about ministries, worship service times, and community events can also be found here. Our hope is that our website will be one of many ways you stay connected to our church community.
