Lomax Temple AME Zion Church is committed to making liberated disciples of Jesus Christ through Christian Education. And as a result, we are “Changed People Changing the World” through Stewardship, Outreach, Worship, Evangelism and Discipleship (SOWED). Our church believes that salvation of the soul is not divorced from the necessity of salvation of community, economy, and political conditions that affect the total person. We embrace a holistic approach to ministry and accept the responsibility as those who have been changed by Christ, to become catalyst for change. God doesn’t change situations, but God changes people and people change their own situations. God is using this fellowship to bring change to where it is needed.
Jesus Christ gives a “Declaration of intent” or “His Manifesto of Ministry” in Luke 4:18-19 when He says “ The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord”.
