Welcome to the official website of St. Mark AME Church, the “Church of the Anvil” located at 1616 West Atkinson Avenue in the great city of Milwaukee, WI.
As the redeemed people of God, our mission is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental needs of all people by spreading Christ’s liberating gospel through word and deed.

The Church of the Anvil

The anvil is and an expression of our long history and faith. Mother Bethel, the first AME Church was established in 1794 in a blacksmith shop purchased by our founder Richard Allen, in Philadelphia, PA. The external shape of St. Mark’s edifice is expressive of an anvil. Replicas of the anvil are also set in each stained-glass window.
