About Us

Crestview United Methodist church was founded in 1953 at its current location in the heart of the Crestview neighborhood in north central Austin. For over 60 years, we have been a proud part of Crestview, and we’re excited about the future!

We are an inclusive church of imperfect people who are daily finding meaning for our lives by following Jesus. We believe the heart of the Christian faith is loving God and loving our neighbors, and we’ve found that when we commit ourselves to that love, we experience what Jesus called “abundant life.”

Scripture is central to our beliefs, and we interpret the Bible through tradition, reason, and experience. We believe all verses of the Bible should be understood within the context of God’s larger story of love, reconciliation, and grace through Jesus Christ.

If you’d like to visit our church on a Sunday morning, you can expect to be greeted warmly and invited into a “casual traditional” worship service with a variety of musical styles. Any attire – from suits to jeans to shorts to sandals – is welcome. And don’t worry – you won’t be singled out or asked to say anything during worship!

Join us at Crestview Methodist as we seek to follow Jesus and partner with what God is already doing in Crestview and in greater Austin.
