About FirstChurch

First United Methodist Church has stood in the heart of downtown Dallas for over 170 years. In that time, the neighborhood and the city have changed around us, but our presence and witness remains steadfast.

We are disciples of Jesus Christ, transformed by God to transform the world. Our missions and ministries extend well beyond our doors to serve both our members and our neighbors.

We are about people: the people we serve, the people we are, and the people we strive to become. We invite you to be part of this congregation. You’ll find a diverse group of individuals with a common greeting for you: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are welcome here!

We would love to meet you! From our Rotunda Theatre to the magnificent bell tower, we have lots of corners to show you and a great history to share. We look forward to answering your questions about our ministry, theology and outreach, and invite you to join us for a tour.
