What Do We Believe?
We believe in the love of Jesus Christ and that we are called to be ambassadors of his love for ourselves and others. Our core beliefs are best expressed by The Apostles Creed:
I believe in God, the Father, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* church, the communion of saints,the forgiveness of sins,the resurrection of the body,and the life everlasting. Amen.
Who Are We?
We are a Traditional United Methodist Church seeking to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ's love to the world around us.
How Do We Grow?
We believe that scripture is primary in our understanding of God through his Son, Jesus Christ. Our ability to understand Jesus is revealed through scripture interpreted through the light of our life. Experiences, reason and the traditions of the church help us apply God’s word to our lives. Thus, scripture can be seen in different lights and application based on the reader’s perspective and is meant for God to meet real needs in a real world.

History of Holston View
In 1934, just five years after the Great Depression, Rev. Clarence Whitson, A.L. Beverly, and J.A. Mosely received permission from Walter Smith to pitch a tent on his property in Weber City to hold a revival. The revival was a success and led to the birth of Holston View Church. Starting with prayer meetings in homes, and then for many months gathering for worship and Sunday School underneath the shade trees of Mrs. Elsie Clonce’s property, within sight of our current structure, momentum built for this young community minded congregation.
After much work, fundraising, and prayer, the community pulled together to consecrate a small white church on the last Sunday in August 1936.
New Church Building
As the church grew and became stronger, Rev. Ed E. Perry began visiting, on foot, every home in Weber City to get support for a new structure in our current location. Under the leadership of Rev. Eddie Fox, groundbreaking took place on June 30, 1963 for the educational wing, the sanctuary was consecrated on July 23, 1967, and a parsonage was constructed in 1967. In June of 1987 Holston View became a station charge after many years of fruitful connectional ministry with the Prospect UMC.
In 1995 the Administrative Council of Holston View formed a “Future Committee” to explore the missional opportunities to better serve our community and worship God. After many prayers, the Future Committee discerned God’s plan to build a multi-use building to seat 300 people and greatly expand the preschool and childcare ministry. Construction was completed in 2006.
At Holston View we are blessed with the presence of people of all ages who work together for advancement of God’s Kingdom. As a church we pray that we can build on the faithful work of previous generations and “Be Disciples, Making Disciples” for the transformation of the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
