Who We Are
We are a church striving to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We seek to be both multi-generational and ethnically diverse as a representation of our community and the diversity and variety in the Kingdom of God.
We began in 1959 and celebrated 50 years of faithful and fruitful ministry in 2009. Our location on Old Troy Pike was through the generosity of the Booher family and a deal struck with Charles Huber during the initial development of Huber Heights.
As Huber Heights has grown and changed, so has Aldersgate. This growth and change can be seen in the evolution of our building. We have added to our initial building and most recently remodeled the front of our facility, adding a digital sign, a memory a garden, and a new entrance and steeple.
We are a congregation of The United Methodist Church and are part of The Miami Valley District of The West Ohio Annual Conference. Our name comes from the place where John Wesley experienced his “heart strangely warmed” in 1738 about which Wesley wrote:
“In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate Street, where one was reading Luther’s preface to the Epistle to the Romans. About a quarter before nine, while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.” (Journal of John Wesley, May 14, 1738)
We seek to experience and share that same transformation of ourselves and our community by the same faith in Christ.
