Who We Are

DeLeon FUMCDeLeon FUMC is a small church located in the rural community of DeLeon, Tx, located roughly 100 miles of Fort Worth.

Usual Sunday attendance is in the neighborhood of 120 at two services — the 8:45 a.m. contemporary service and the 10:55 a.m. traditional service.

Sandwiched between the two services is a time of coffee, snacks and fellowship in the church’s Heritage Hall meeting area, and Sunday school class meeting times.

We are part of the Central Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Methodism is a branch of Protestant Christianity that traces its heritage back to John Wesley and his attempts to bring revival within the Church of England in the early 18th century.

Methodism holds many of the basic Protestant Christian beliefs, including the inspiration and authority of scripture for faith and practice, the doctrines of the Trinity and the divinity of Jesus, and the necessity of grace to save humans from the consequences of sin.

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world

— the Methodist mission statement

Wesley taught that Christians should strive to obtain holiness of life (called “perfect love”) with the assistance of the Holy Spirit. He established a system of small group meetings that were designed to encourage and support fellow Christians in lives of faith.

Methodism spread rapidly throughout the United States in the late 18th and early 19th centuries through itinerant preachers.

Wesley and the early Methodists were particularly concerned about inviting people to experience God’s grace and to grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living. They placed primary emphasis on Christian living — on putting faith and love into action.

Some of the core values of the Methodist Church are evangelism, the Wesleyan tradition, spiritual growth, mission and inclusiveness. Five areas of focus are outlined: a new generation of Christian leaders, new churches for new people in new places and transformation of existing churches, working with the poor to eliminate poverty, and eradicating killer diseases (especially HIV/AIDS and malaria).

We strive to utilize five practices in our church: radical hospitality, passionate worship, intentional faith development, risk-taking mission and service and extravagant generosity.
