Founded in 1931 through the prayers of a small group of individuals, Fresh Start Church, from its earliest days has been rooted in a foundation of prayer, and a desire to impact the community for Christ. The original church building was moved from Rapid City to Bellaire in the early 1930s, and Fresh Start Church has been firmly planted at Cayuga & Court Streets ever since. In 2017, the church name was changed from "Bellaire Wesleyan Church" to "Fresh Start, A Wesleyan Church".
Today, Fresh Start Church continues to uphold the ideals set forth over 80 years ago through our mission statement: KNOWING JESUS. BEING JESUS. We believe that it's not only our mission to introduce people to Jesus, but to grow daily in our relationship with Him. At the same time, we also know that following Jesus means surrendering every aspect of our lives to imitating the example Jesus set.
Though who we are has changed over the years, our passion and desire to Know Jesus on a deeper level, and Be Jesus in our homes, schools, workplaces, and communities has not wavered. We'd love for you to join us in worship and become an integral part of our family!
