Baldwin City’s long history with the Methodist Church dates back to before the town was founded and before Baker University was established in 1858. When the original church back then burned to the ground, it was replaced with the current First United Methodist Church, which stands next to the university in downtown Baldwin City to this day.

What brought the Methodists to Baldwin City?

It’s easy to see that Baldwin City is a Methodist stronghold, but why is that? All one has to do is look at the numerous churches to see it. First United Methodist Church. Ives Chapel Methodist Church. Vinland United Methodist Church. Worden United Methodist Church. Clearfield United Methodist Church.
