About Aldersgate UMC

Who We Are

Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Santa Fe, TX was founded on April 3, 1960 when the Alta Loma Methodist Church and the Arcadia Methodist Church officially merged after realizing their oneness in Christ.  The name "Aldersgate" was selected in remembrance of the heartwarming experience of John Wesley on Aldersgate Street in London on May 24, 1738.

Our Philosophy

Faith is more than what happens on Sunday mornings. It's a part of who we are, inside and out.  At Aldersgate UMC, we believe in sharing the joy of the gospels daily, and living a life that embodies the spirit of Christ.

"...appeal to an older man in the church as your father.  Treat the  younger men in the church as your brothers.  Treat the older women (in  the church) as your mothers, and treat the younger women (in the church)  as your sisters..."  
(1 Timothy 5:1-2)

My dear church folks:
You  and I have lots of brothers in this church.  We have a lot of spiritual  sisters in this church family.  We have some spiritual fathers and some  spiritual mothers too.  I hope that you will get to be familiar with our church family's faces and names.  We are going to see these  people forever, even in heaven.  Let us cherish all those who our God  has given to us as our spiritual family members.

Your brother, Pastor Yohan Baek
