In 1962, two hundred and twenty-four years after John Wesley founded the Methodist church in England, a small group of people wanted to organize a Methodist Church in Placentia, California. Residents with a Methodist background were contacted and held their first meeting in a garage. Reverend Edwin Swenson was assigned to the task. On May 24, 1964, the church was chartered and services were moved to the newly built Charles Wagner Elementary School. From the beginning, our church has opened its door to people who seek the Gospel, who reach out to those in need and who enjoy fellowship in the name of Jesus Christ.


Our Mission: Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
