St. Matthew United Methodist Church has been in Belleville, Illinois, since 1955.


The church has experienced a great deal of growth and expansion over the

years. Our current 1400 seat sanctuary was originally built in 1991 and then

rebuilt in 1994 after a fire destroyed the sanctuary.


Today, St. Matthew seeks to “Know Jesus, Grow in His Grace, and Go in

His Name to Serve.” We “Know Jesus” through our worship experience,

emphasizing evangelism and personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (We

also haw in His grace” by providing opportunities to become grounded in

our faith. Baptism, Bible study, small groups, Sunday schools, Wednesday

night classes are all available so you can grow in God’s Grace.


Additionally, we offer opportunities for you to put your faith into action

through service; to “Go in His Name.” St. Matthew has always been a

mission-minded church with emphasis on both local and foreign missions.


Locally, the church has sponsored the Good News Club evangelistic

outreach for children at Harmony School. The church has also taken an

active role at the Christian Activity Center and Lessie Bates Neighborhood

House in East St. Louis.


Each year, teams serve the underprivileged in the

Appalachian Mountains at Redbird Mission. Each year, teams go to

Paraguay for evangelism, construction and medical outreach.


All that takes place at St. Matthew in one way or another is part of the

“know, grow and go” mission statement.


We sincerely hope and pray that the St. Matthew history encourages you as

you consider what God has accomplished since 1955. More importantly,

though, we sincerely hope and pray that you will consider becoming a part

of this local church as we “Know, Grow, and Go” for Christ’s sake in

Belleville and beyond.
