About Us

Our History

We have been serving Dover since 1778, with the current location started in 1850. Many changes have come to Dover, and Wesley United Methodist Church, but we celebrate as we look forward to continuing to serve the community now, and in the future.

Our Beliefs

Wesley Church is a United Methodist Church. 

The United Methodist Church is a 12.3-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world.  John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action.  This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as “practical divinity” has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.  

United Methodist recognize two sacraments in which Christ himself participated – Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
