Welcome to First Church

First United Methodist Church of San Diego (FUMCSD) is a community where everyone feels welcomed and loved by God. We promise to love our neighbors as ourselves and strive for justice, peace, and mutual respect among them all thereby embracing Christ’s message in the world today.

As active members of our church community, we work together to make it a better place. We help people realize their full potential by living out their faith in Jesus Christ—and that’s certainly something worth celebrating!

First Church is a church that is open and welcoming to all people regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation. We provide many services to our members—from groups and ministries to community events. In addition, our live streaming worship service allows people who cannot attend in person to still participate and feel Christ's presence.

We celebrate our many differences, seek justice for all people, and encourage one another as we strive to live in harmony with Christ's teachings. Are you looking for the perfect place to belong and feel welcomed? Join our community today! Contact us here
