Fremont United Methodist Church

A faith community in NE Portland that embodies Jesus’s love
and the relentless, unapologetic pursuit of equity and social justice.



As a reconciling congregation

Fremont UMC affirms without equivocation that all human beings, having been created in God’s image and having received the breath and grace of God, are God’s children. Sexual orientation or gender identity have no bearing on one’s status as a beloved child of God. Our LGBTQI+ siblings are welcomed, affirmed, and fully embraced in this faith community. We are a church that embodies love and relentless unapologetic pursuit of equity and social justice.


As a physical presence in the community

We humbly acknowledge that Fremont UMC is located on the ancestral and unceded land of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, and other native American bands of the Chinook. We honor their stewardship of the land and grieve their displacement.
