Messiah Church of York

Messiah Church of York is a newly independent, evangelical church tracing its roots back to the late 1800s and the York Fifth United Brethren Church. It was under the UB umbrella that the current facility was constructed and opened in 1959. After the formation of the United Methodist Church in 1968, the name was changed from Fifth UB to Messiah UMC. In 2023, the church became an independent church while continuing to follow the Wesleyan traditions of it’s founders.

The church has seen many generations since it first started and has been a beacon on the hill in North York Borough, York, Pennsylvania for many years. The church is active in the community through relationships with a local elementary school, summer kids camp and more. We have partnered with the borough and other nearby churches for family activities, and with the Lebanon Cemetery board of directors to assist in the revitalization of a historic cemetery that borders our property.

Our mission statement is “To KNOW Christ, to GROW in Christ and to SHOW Christ ” and we are excited to see God working in the people of the church as we strive to live out this mission.

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20 NLT
