Who We Are
First United Methodist Church was first organized in 1854, just one year before the town of Stephenville was founded. That year there were ten charter members that made up the congregation. In 1917, the present Beaux Arts-style building replaced an earlier sanctuary that was only about twenty-five years old at the time. Since that time, FUMC has grown into what it is today.

What We Believe
At First United Methodist Church, we believe that Jesus Christ is God's son, that he came to earth as a baby, died on the cross for our sins and was raised to life so that death and sin could be defeated once and for all!
Our worship is firmly grounded in scripture, new practices, tried and proven church tradition, functional liturgy, preaching, teaching and congregational singing. To find out more about our beliefs, come see us on Sunday mornings at 9:00am and 11:00am!
