Saint Luke ranks as one of the oldest Churches in North Carolina, tracing its descent from the Christian Chapel Church formed on Easter Sunday 1865 by James Walker Hood and 13 lay persons in Wilmington.
After Christian Chapel was destroyed by fire in 1877, a new church was built and was named Saint Luke at its dedication on October 22, 1882. The present church building was dedicated on October 21, 1945 after the earlier church burned in 1944.
New Saint Luke is a part of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. Our History, Bishops, Beliefs and Departments can be found on our Official Website: www.amez.org and our Book of Discipline can be accessed buy downloading the Barnes & Noble eReader app on any mobile device.
