Our Story

Established in 1912, Wesley Methodist Church has been a part of the Beaumont area for over 100 years. It’s spot on Major Drive and Folsom is just one of the Beaumont area locations Wesley has called home over the years. With the rest of Beaumont, Wesley has seen hurricanes, watched the area change, grow, and develop. With lots of love, care, and mission projects, Wesley has helped thousands of people become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Why is Wesley now Global Methodist?

In 1968 the United Methodist Church was formed by the merging of the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church.  In 1972, the General Conference of the U.M.C. adopted a statement entitled “Our Theological Task.” The statement introduced an affirmation of “theological diversity.” Theological diversity was chosen because of the misguided idea of the church needing to “stay current” by embracing a wide range of opinions, personal beliefs, and religious backgrounds so it could have a broad appeal to culture. Theological diversity, at its best, allows for new expressions of basic Christian teaching.  Theological pluralism, at its worst, provides a loophole by which political agendas, separate religions, secular philosophy, pop culture, and much more can exploit and derail the church from its true mission. Counterfeit or fake “gospels” are too frequently the product of theological diversity.

Attempts to help the U.M.C. stand firm on the authority of scripture and historic Christian teaching as well as to clarify what they believed started almost immediately after the 1972 General Conference.  Renewal movements faithfully did their best to help the U.M.C. hold fast to the witness of the scriptures and their Wesleyan heritage of holiness. Despite their efforts, the leadership of the U.M.C. repeatedly ignored basic Christian teachings, openly defied the covenant they had made with the church and was not held accountable for abandoning the historic Christian faith.

In 2022 the Global Methodist Church was formed by those who understood the importance of holding each other accountable 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.  Instead of giving the agendas and opinions of the day the driver’s seat while stuffing traditional Christian belief in the trunk, we confess and believe the faith handed down to us, faith 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 also called to teach and embody the message of salvation from sin and death through Jesus Christ so the world can be reconciled to God.    

“Seeking the lost and sending the saved!” 



Jesus came to give us a joy-filled life, and His example reminds us that serving others is a key part. From rocking babies and mowing grass to leading teams and brewing coffee, every person has gifts to share and resources to give to help build God’s church. We make it easy to jump in and get started.

Small Groups

Wesley’s Small Groups provide a place for people to belong so they can become who God has called them to be. Going from “rows” on Sunday morning to “circles” during the week helps us create relationships, allows us the opportunity to “do life” together and move from where we are to where God wants us to be. Small Groups are comprised of men and women from all generations who meet throughout the week. They are a place for those who desire to grow, ask questions, and be encouraged when life gets tough. More than just a group of friends, our groups exist to demonstrate and share the love of Jesus by serving our community.

Our groups create new relationships through shared passions, including Bible study topics, common interest groups, men’s, women’s, children’s, and outreach. Contact the church office for more information or join us at the next scheduled meeting! All are welcome.
