Historical Sketch

The first record of the church states that the Belleville Methodist Episcopal Church was meeting in a frame building 30'x40' in the year 1835. The building was owned and shared by the Baptists. In July 1846, the Belleville Methodist Episcopal Church accepted a gift of two lots in Belleville, two blocks north of the corner of State Road 39 and U.S. 40. On this location in 1858 a red brick church home was built. In 1923 the old building was replaced by another brick church building. This building has been remodeled several times over the years.
