First United exists to remind us that we are already loved by God and called into genuine relationships as we follow the radical way of Jesus.


Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.


Our stories are ever changing, a mystifying dance among people, places, & our own perception. First United Methodist Church of Costa Mesa is an odd tribe of individuals seeking to create space for those incredible, messy lives to unfold. We welcome those seeking growth through gathering in community, utilizing the stories of Christ as our guiding narrative. The place of abundance found gives us the courage to share our time, passion, & money as a means to garden all that surrounds us. Our desires are rooted in growing peace & hope. If those words mean something to you and you find yourself in a place of unrest, fear, or transition, read on. Our story may be one in the same.
