About – our history
In February of 1961, Bishop Paul N. Garber, bishop of the North Carolina Annual Conference of the Methodist Church, appointed Rev. F. Belton Joyner, Jr. to organize a Methodist congregation in the Pine Valley Estates area of Wilmington.
The original sanctuary now houses classrooms.
The unique dome-shaped sanctuary was completed in 1974.
The Christian Life Center was completed in 1997. Learn more about our history.
We received our first members September 10, 1961. In 1990, our membership was 1100. During our 50th Anniversary in 2011, the membership was over 2100. Today, our membership continues to grow, and here are some of our newest members.
