What We Believe

First Methodist Waco operates under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, contains everything necessary for salvation, and instructive for daily living. We believe that the essentials of the faith are contained in the Apostle's Creed, a statement that dates back to early days of the church's existence. And while our history has much to offer us, we know that the future of the church demands that we teach, love, and put faith into action in everyday life.

We have a rich heritage which values scriptural authority, personal and social holiness, passionate worship, serving those in need, and the importance of small groups for study, prayer and accountability.
