our story

We've been part of the fabric of the community that bears his name since the Reverend Harris G. Joplin, a Methodist circuit rider, made his way to the edge of the frontier back in the 1830’s and planted a congregation among the folks who had settled here.  As the community grew so did we.  In 1905 we opened the doors to a new house of worship at the corner of 4th and Byers Avenue, and those doors are still open today.


Turn the page.  A lot has changed since then:  styles, music, technology--even our building.  But our commitment to sharing Christ with the community and the world has not. We are a unique blend of old and new, classic and modern, with a common love for Jesus and for you!  Won’t you join us and help us write the next chapter in our story?

Our Mission

Reaching out.  Transforming lives.  Transforming the world.


Jesus is at the center of everything we say, sing, pray, preach, and do.  Because it's impossible to encounter Jesus without coming away changed, our goal is to be Jesus for the community and the world so they, too, can be changed.
