Waples Makes a Difference

Waples has chosen to be more than just a beautiful architectural landmark on the west end of historic downtown Denison. Waples is a mission-minded church, growing in faith and love of God all while expressing concern for those in need in our community and around the world, wanting to reach out to share God's spirit of love with people who need the presence of God in their lives.


"To gather as God's people, to grow in faith, love and service, and to go into the world to make disciples of Jesus Christ."

Hence our motto: Gather, Grow, & Go!


As United Methodists we have a strong conviction that God has mercy and love for all people, a belief in a triune God consisting of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, an unshakable faith in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ, and the belief in the celebration of the sacraments. We are founded on the idea of prevenient grace which is a divine grace which precedes human decision.


Waples is a caring, loving community that 

is committed to growing families in faith, praying for others, and serving our community.
