YOU'RE ALREADY PART OF THE FAMILY
We believe everyone can find their place at First United Methodist Church. We understand that exploring Jesus or visiting a new church for the first time can be an intimidating and uncomfortable experience. First United Methodist has a rich history spanning over 170 years of helping people just like you come to know Jesus. Today, First United Methodist is home to hundreds of people. We're a dynamic, family church for everyone with people of all ages and from all walks of life who make up the community of First United Methodist Church.
JESUS IS THE ANSWER
At First United Methodist Church, we believe that God's Word has the ability to change lives. Whatever your journey so far, you can choose the next chapter. As a church we apply the truth of the Bible to our everyday lives and share life together as a community.
We care about people because God cares about people. God desires for His children to experience abundant life in Him. Our vision is to engage, encourage, equip and expand our community to experience this life each and every day through the love and encouragement of Christ. We believe that we can't do life alone, that growing people change, that saved people serve people, and that found people find people. As we continue to invest resources into reaching people in Belvidere, the surrounding area & beyond, we pray that First United Methodist Church can make a Kingdom impact at a global & local level.
