FAME - First African Methodist Episcopal Church, Los Angeles FAME - First African Methodist Episcopal Church, Los Angeles FAME

First African Methodist Episcopal Church of Los Angeles is the oldest church founded by African Americans in the City of Angels.

In 1872 Mrs. Biddy Mason (a former slave) received the vision from God to establish a church that would minister to the mind, body and soul of all who would join that small band of believers. That vision and small band of believers has grown to what is now a congregation of more than 19,000 members and several dozen ministries within 15 corporations that bless and reach tens of thousands of seekers in greater metropolitan Los Angeles.
