Downey UMC is proudly part of the United Methodist Church. The Methodist tradition celebrates Christianity of the head and heart. We believe personal and social holiness. Methodists seek to transform individuals and change the world. 

​Downey United Methodist Church holds a unique place in the spiritual landscape of Downey. We were the first church established in the city and have long been the spiritual center of Downey. However, we are not a church that "rests on our laurels." We are committed to ministry that is relevant today. We are a church that is rooted in history, but with a vision for the future. Come and see what God is up to at DUMC!
