Who We Are

First United Methodist Church, holds the honor of being the “First” church established in Asheboro. We began in 1843 from humble beginnings with our founders meeting in houses to worship and break bread together. Today we are located in downtown Asheboro on the corner of North Fayetteville and Salisbury Streets. While we are proud of our history, our true joy and purpose comes in sharing the love of Jesus Christ to all around us, and striving to be His hands and feet in Asheboro.

     “Loving ALL In & Beyond our Walls” is more than a tagline to us, it is the mission of our church. We look to the perfect example of Jesus to guide us, and this is a place for everyone regardless of your bank account, age, race, sexual orientation, or past.  Everyone is welcome and loved here. Just as you are.
