Wake Forest United Methodist Church is a Christian family in every sense of the word. We are truly a loving and inclusive church where Christ and his teachings are the focus.

Jesus Loves You. He loved you so much that he was willing to sacrifice his life so that you will know salvation. At WFUMC we celebrate His life and teachings through His ministry. Yes…His ministry, because we are merely the stewards of the Good News. We are His hands in this world. Through His ministry the good news is spreading, families are spiritually nurtured, the word of God is spoken, and children and people everywhere know that Jesus loves them. At WFUMC you will find a Christian community that will embrace you and your family and welcome you in the warm and loving arms of Christian fellowship.

The roots of our church go back to 1829 when members of the local Methodist Society constructed a building called the Hartsfield Meeting House in Rolesville. In 1859 a new church was built in Rolesville and called the Rolesville Methodist Church. In 1936 with the local population shifting to Wake Forest the church moved to its current location and a new building was built with 67 members on the original charter. In the early years the church grew slowly. The parsonage was built in 1957, and renovations to the church were completed in 1970, 1973 and 1986. In 1999, with our membership beginning to grow rapidly, we built our new sanctuary. Rapid growth continued, and in 2011, we completed the addition of a Family Life Center on our campus. Today our membership continues to grow.

As a Christian community, your church is responsible for helping you balance your life with spiritual well-being. If you are a parent, you endeavor to raise your children in the Christian faith by participating in the church, its activities and its ministries. Involvement in your church family helps you focus on your Christian faith and how the ministry of your church fosters the knowledge that God loves you every day of your life. At WFUMC, we know that Jesus Loves us all and ministers to us daily. Through the Holy Spirit, we share His Love in our outreach into the community and the world.

Our WFUMC Christian community embodies the love that God and Jesus Christ give us freely and without reservation. At WFUMC, our church family knows we are all loved no matter our imperfections, no matter our human failings. At WFUMC, we share our Christian love freely and you are family from day one. This is what you need to know in the most basic terms "About Us. At WFUMC you will find a Christian community that is inclusive and will embrace you and your family in the love of God and Jesus Christ. Come, please join us and feel the warm embrace of a truly giving and loving Christian community.
