Welcome to First Methodist Church of Waco - You Belong Here!

Established in 1850, First Methodist Waco has a rich history and a limitless future. With three campuses, Main Campus, Downtown Campus, and South Campus, our church is a multigenerational family rich with members from birth to over 10 years old.

We love Jesus. We love babies, kids, youth, college students, and young adults. We love parents, families, and senior adults. We love you.

We have found that our lives have more meaning and are richer than we could ever imagine because we are part of this loving family. Come see what we have found: First Methodist has a place for you.

You belong here.
