Mission Statement

“Restore, Rebuild & Conquer”

“An Inviting, Celebrating Congregation, Joyfully Serving and Nurturing God’s People”

We, the Wesley United Methodist Church family, are excited to be ministers of God’s mercy and grace in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  We’ve been here since 1866.  But, today there’s a fresh movement of God’s Holy Spirit in our midst, invigorating us as we grow disciples, care for our city, and share the redemptive, transforming love of Christ with a changing world.

We are growing and gaining wisdom and divine favor in our daily walk together.  We hope you will visit, share in the Wesley experience, and become a part of all that we seek to do in serving and glorifying God through our various ministries.


We exist to impact our community and culture through the innovative presentation of Christianity.

Our Vision Scripture is “Write the vision and make it plain…” Habakkuk 2:2


“Restore, Rebuild & Conquer”

Our Missional scripture is Jude 1:20 “Building on you most Holy Faith”
