First United Methodist Church of Ocala – FUMC Ocala, Florida

Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Ocala


Our goal is “to experience and share the love of God and make disciples of Jesus Christ.” We are a gathering of people who have experienced the grace and goodness of Jesus, and we are trying to be faithful disciples of Jesus.

This Church is committed to helping people be open to the power of the Holy Spirit so that they can become one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world. Our mission is to make holy, devout, and active disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and of the world.

We believe the Church is the Body of Christ in the world, meant to do as Jesus did by feeding the hungry, welcoming the outcast, sharing our possessions, offering healing and hope to the lost, and sharing the witness of faith.

We invite you to join us as we grow together in Christ!

Please Join Us!

We are a downtown church on Silver Springs Boulevard in Ocala, Florida, bridging the gap between middle and upper-middle class neighborhoods to our south and the poor and working-class neighborhoods to our north.

We have chosen to stay downtown while many other churches have moved to the suburbs and outlying areas because we believe God has called us to stay and serve in the midst of so much need.


Traditional & Contemporary services. The style may be different, but the heart of worship is the same.
