One of the oldest congregations in African Methodism, Bethel AME Church was originally incorporated in 1811. In 1847, Rev. Daniel Payne purchased the pipe organ to be used during worship and Bethel Baltimore became the first AME Church to have instrumental music during church services. The congregation purchased this church 1910. This year the congregation is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone!
