Abraham told God in Genesis 18:27, “I am nothing but dust and ashes." The prophet Jeremiah described death as a "valley of dead bones and ashes" in Jeremiah 31:40. So, the ashes used on Ash Wednesday symbolize death. Ashes on Ash Wednesday at the start of the Lenten season represent our repentance from sin and Jesus Christ's sacrificial death to set us free from sin and death. On Ash Wednesday, our Pastor or a member of the ministerial staff distributes ashes by lightly rubbing the shape of a cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers. The tradition of tracing a cross on the forehead is meant to identify the faithful with Jesus Christ.
Welcome to the First AME Zion Church San Jose. We are a community of Christians who love God and fellowship together, seeking to glorify God and live in the abundance of His presence and provision. Whomever you are or whatever your situation, we invite you to get to know us and discover how God is being exalted in the midst of this church. Our mantra “The Church Without Walls” reflects the Church’s acceptance of all people who seek salvation, have a desire to exercise their spiritual gifts and talents and need a place to worship. We open wide our doors and in the name of Jesus, The Christ, we bid you welcome! It is our hope that you experience the love of Christ and His presence as you explore our web site.
