I would like to welcome you to the Franklin Bible Methodist Church. I am always excited to meet new people. On your very first visit, I trust you will find a warm atmosphere, a friendly congregation, and a church serious about worship and God’s Word.

I am glad you decided to visit us online and I hope the information on our website will give you insight on who we are, our ministries for the entire family, and our passion to love and serve Jesus Christ.

Church is much more that beautiful facilities, but it is a family of people just like you. We support our church family by times of worship, Bible study, prayer, encouragement, caring for needs, and reaching out to our community and world missions.

Please let us know how we may minister to you and your family.

In Christ,

Rev. Brian Wardlaw

Senior Pastor



In 1954 a group of believers gathered for prayer meeting in their homes. Out of this small group, a church was formed. Soon, a building was purchased on Columbia Street in Middletown, OH. The congregation grew and worshiped there until 1989. In that year, a new church was completed on property located on Dixie Highway in Franklin, OH. That property now includes the church, the parsonage, and a Family Ministries Building.

Through the years, the church has grown and now is home to a number of families who desire a warm atmosphere of worship, study of God’s Word, and fellowship and support from people who love God and love people.

Franklin Bible Methodist Church is a member of the Bible Methodist Connection of Churches. The connection has churches in a number of states and several foreign countries.
