Piney Grove A. M. E. Zion Church was organized in 1865, and is a member of the Beaufort, North Carolina, A. M. E. Zion District.

The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church was established in 1796 in New York City by James Varick, Abraham Thompson, William Miller and others. The church was an out-growth of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was necessitated because of discrimination and denial of religious liberty.

The founders of the church determined that this denomination would dedicate itself to the liberation of the human spirit. The early society was known as the "Freedom Church." Spiritual, social, and economic emancipation were the hallmarks of their faith. It boasts as some of its members, James Varick, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass and Soujourner Truth, to name a few.

The organization now encompasses 3,000 churches and it has an active membership of 1.5 million. The church has founded and contributed to the support of a number of institutions of higher learning - Livingstone College {with its affiliate, Hood Theological Seminary}; Lomax Hannon Junior College in Alabama; Clinton Junior College in South Carolina; Dinwiddie Institute in Virginia; and African Methodist Episcopal Zion Junior College in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa - and maintains missions here and abroad.

The Star of Zion, the A. M. E. Zion Church newspaper, is published biweekly.

The A. M. E. Zion Church also owns and operates the Harriet Tubman Home, located in Auburn, New York.
