About Us

Our Mission

At Fremont United Methodist, we believe that Jesus embodied the lavish and unconditional love of God, and that He demonstrated the power of that love to transform brokenness into wholeness. Fremont UMC is a growing, inter-generational church, hospitable and inclusive. However you identify yourself, you can expect the delight of a warm welcome and fellowship. We seek to follow the words of Jesus when He said “Love your neighbor as yourself,” and so we faithfully support one another in our lives as Christians, and we actively engage in service to the larger community and the world. Fremont UMC is a place for all to explore what they believe, to nurture their relationship with God, and to venture forward in service to others. Regardless of gender, race, class, age, ability, religious affiliation or sexual orientation, you belong at Fremont UMC.

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.

Fremont UMC History

In 1922 a group of like-minded individuals founded a Methodist congregation and in 1923 they laid the cornerstone for a church that would serve the spiritual needs of the emerging Irvington and Alameda neighborhoods. They envisioned a beautiful Tudor-style edifice that would welcome the people building houses and moving into the surrounding area. They dreamed of establishing a Methodist presence in the community to offer spiritual solace to neighbors and to give testimony to their faith in God.

Today, Fremont embodies the spirit in which the church was founded. Families and individuals are strengthened in faith, comforted in times of trouble, and blessed with everlasting friendships. Children and youth receive support through kindness, encouragement, and love while they grow in friendship and faith in themselves, others, and God. Fremont has partnered with and supports the interests of community organizations and organizations that are serving the greater good. The Fremont community seeks to preserve and ensure the values the church has grown to have for those who come after.
