Welcome to Wenatchee Free Methodist Church, where our doors are wide open, regardless of where you are on the spiritual journey. If you’re considering joining us on a Sunday morning, our hope is that you would find WFMC to be a place where you can explore what it means to know the love of Christ and step into His plan for your life.
WFMC is committed to learning and applying God’s Word to our lives, cultivating opportunities where you can grow spiritually with others, and serving our community and our world in a way that reflects Christ’s love.
WFMC was founded on June 14, 1913, in a small wood frame building on the corner of Mission and Peachy. The church was the vision of two Free Methodist families from Nebraska who discovered each other here in the valley – and dreamed together of planting a FM church. From its earliest days WFMC has sought to be a church obedient to the Great Commission – sharing the good news of Jesus with people here in the valley and all around the world.
In 1979, WFMC moved locations to a new building on 5th Street – where the church family met for corporate worship in the gym. On September 11, 1988, WFMC dedicated its new sanctuary, and the church family began worshiping God on Sunday mornings in that space.
Not only has reaching out been a trademark of WFMC, but going deeper has also been in its DNA over the decades. In fact, today the Lord is continuing to focus our attention on what it means to really follow Jesus. Yes, we have programs, events and services – but all of these are really just means to our end, which is to become transformed followers of Jesus.
That is why we exist.
The prayer of WFMC’s leadership is that we become more and more a church family where people can explore the claims of Jesus, eventually surrender their lives to Jesus, and then ultimately join Jesus in seeing His Kingdom advanced throughout the world.
What We Believe
One of the shorthand statements that captures what WFMC believes is:
“All people need to be saved (Romans 3:23); all people can be saved (John 3:16); all people can know that they’re saved (1 John 5:10); all people can be saved to the uttermost (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24).”
Jesus didn't go to the cross and rise from the dead just so that we could go to heaven when we die (as important as that is). Jesus came to impart to us a new life that is marked by freedom, healing, and the power to become the person He created us to be.
