Wellsville first united Methodist Church

Love grows here

Welcome to Wellsville First United Methodist Church.

Wellsville First United Methodist Church is a church that rests on the long tradition of Wesleyan Theology.  John Wesley began the movement called "Methodism" in the 1700s.  The ferver of this movement quickly spread through Great Britain and came to  America where Spiritual hunger during the pre-revolutionary war period was great.  The message of a "warmed heart" ignited by the Holy Spirit brought many people to faith during the formation of America.  The doctrines of grace; prevenient, justifying and sanctifying are mainstays of Wesleyan theology.   Welsey taught the Methodist to "spread scriptural holiness throughout the land."   Wikipedia writes: Wesley embraced Arminian doctrines. Moving across Great Britain and Ireland, he helped form and organize  small  Christian groups that developed intensive and personal accountibility, discipleship and religious instruction."    Methodism has always placed a high priority on maturing Christians in  faithfulness, love and service.  We continue in that classical Wesleyan vein seeking to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.  Our mission of "Love Grows Here" includes three vital areas of growth through Worship, Bible Study and Service.


Our Worship each Sunday is the primary gathering of the larger church.  Through scripture, music, prayer, and the spoken word we grow together in seeking the will of God for our church family. God’s mission and worship are inseparably linked.

Bible Study

Bible Study offers the opportunity to dig deeper into God's word and grow in our mission of transforming lives.  Through study the church fulfills its mission to love the Lord and to love our neighbor as ourselves.


The way that we share the love of Christ with the world helps the church to grow as disciples.  As we reach out in service to the community and beyond, we also find friends who are seeking something more meaningful in their life.  Often people just need to know that someone cares about them.
