Established in 1912, Wesley Methodist Church has been a part of the Beaumont area for over 100 years. With the rest of Beaumont, Wesley has seen hurricanes, watched the area change, grow, and develop. With lots of love, care, and mission, Wesley has helped thousands of people become disciples of Jesus Christ.
Methodism began as a Christian renewal focused on “methods” or specific spiritual disciplines that are pathways for growing as followers of Jesus Christ.
In 1968 the United Methodist Church was formed by the merging of the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church.
Over the decades since Wesley continued to grow and relocate to areas in Beaumont to reach more people for Christ. We have been at the corner of Major and Folsom Drives for about 20 years.
After years-long upheaval and change in the United Methodist Church, Wesley entered a period of discernment and prayer in 2022 for God to show where we can best align for the sake of the mission to “seek the lost and send the saved.” After that season of discernment, the people of Wesley chose to join the new connection called the Global Methodist Church.
We are excited for the Global Methodist Church’s focus on Christian renewal and faithfulness to the historic Christian faith handed onto us through the centuries.
By God’s grace we hold each other with grace and accountability to basic Christian teachings such as the divinity and humanity of Jesus, original sin, way of salvation, atonement, scriptural authority, and the work of the Holy Spirit. We confess and believe in Jesus Christ crucified, resurrected, and coming again.
Rather than letting the world define us, we journey down the exciting path of Jesus and His teachings being what defines us. We are called to love all people the way Jesus loved us. We are called to teach and embody the message of salvation from sin and death through Jesus Christ so the world can be reconciled to God. And we would love to be on that journey with you.
Seeking the Lost and Sending the Saved!
