Our Story

On a blustery April morning in 1838, a Christian gentleman saddled his horse in Philadelphia and began a voyage to Allentown. His saddlebags contained a Bible, his sermon manuscripts and a map. He followed this map to Doylestown, “a fine county, thickly settled”, where he accepted an invitation from a Presbyterian pastor to use their church as a meeting place. This horseman was Reverend James Hand and these meetings were the beginning of Doylestown United Methodist Church, in the building that is now Doylestown Borough Hall.
We continue to grow and prosper as a community of Christ at our current location, on seven acres of land on Swamp Road. We are a vibrant and active community of Christ, and we once again expanded our physical church with the opening of our new Ministries Center in 2019.

Vision & Mission

Our Vision at Doylestown United Methodist Church is to be a community experiencing joy in the presence of God.

We value:

  • Worship, in all its expressions, that draws us closer in union with God and each other
  • Spiritual development through the study of God’s word, reflection and prayer
  • Serving God and sharing Christ with others by responding to human physical, emotional, and spiritual needs
  • Fellowship and community in our church by encouraging and strengthening meaningful relationships
  • Integrity, unconditional love, respect, restoration and trust, as individuals and as a Family of Faith
