Welcome to FirstChurch

At First United Methodist Church, we’re anchored by history and tradition, yet we move fearlessly toward the future – toward our own spiritual development and that of others, of a thriving and inclusive Dallas, and of a world free from poverty and hate. We believe our greatest call is not just to believe in God, but to serve as living examples of God’s presence and grace in the world.

We exist to
grow disciples,
connect communities,
and serve the world.

We’re working to unite you with God and others, so you can fully live the life Christ has for you. Bring your questions, your fears, and your doubts – we welcome and receive you as you are.

At FirstChurch, there’s a seat at the table for you.

Come Join Us
