Church History

The First United Methodist Church celebrated 175 years in ministry in Dixon on May 6, 2012. Who we are today as a church has been shaped by the saints who have come before us. The ministry we continue to do today has been built upon that foundation laid by the faithful first followed God’s calling in Dixon. Just as they planted something new here to bring Jesus Christ to this community, we plan to plant new ministries to continue to connect people with Jesus Christ and each other to transform lives and our community.
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by faithfully uplifting the message of Christ. We endeavor to do this by connecting people to Jesus Christ to transform lives and our community.You are God’s workmanship, created in Christ to do good works! We’ll help you discover the life of high adventure when you surrender all to Jesus.
