Who We Are

Frazer is people—people like you, doing life together with all of its ups and downs, trying to make a difference in the world through our connection to Jesus Christ.

Core Values

These are the seven basic values that the Frazer family is built on. We call them the "DNA" of Frazer.

1) Jesus is First

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

3) Life is better together. Growth Happens in Groups.

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common.” Acts 2:42-44

4) Everyone matters. Everyone ministers.

"Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet." John 13:14

5) People invite people. Leaders multiply Leaders.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19

6) How we treat the poor and the powerless is how we treat Jesus.

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

7) Love God and love people.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40

At Frazer, we join with millions Christians who have traditionally affirmed the Apostle’s Creed as a summary of the key points we believe are true, as explained in the Bible and passed on through the Church around the world and across the centuries. Here it is:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of the Father Almighty.
from thence he shall come again 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.


Frazer's mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the hope of the world.


Small beginnings

Frazer Memorial United Methodist Church began in 1889 when a local preacher organized a Sunday School in a storeroom on Holt Street in Montgomery. In 1892 a minister was assigned to the group and the church was organized.

Historic move

In the 1960s, Frazer Memorial Methodist Church had about 500 members. Construction of Interstates 85 and 65 caused many of the members to move to other parts of town. Some denominational consultants studied the problem and basically suggested the church disband.

After more discussion, the pastor, Rev. Noah Lisenby, is reported to have leaped out of his chair, looked at the people present, and said, "You may know statistics and demographics, but you don't know the heart of the people of Frazer, and you don't understand God's purpose for these people!"

Eventually, five acres of property in East Montgomery were offered to the church. At the time it was simply an open cotton field well outside the city limits with few houses around, but members stayed faithful to the church and began to invite others to join them. As the city grew out toward the East, the church grew as well.

The growth

Over the next 30 years, Frazer became one of the fastest growing United Methodist congregations in America. In 1990 it had the largest worship attendance and the largest Sunday School attendance of any United Methodist congregation in North America.

To reach even more people, Frazer began to offer three Sunday morning worship services and Sunday School hours in 1978. In 1992, Frazer invested in a state-of-the-art television ministry and studio to take the message of Christ to the greater Montgomery community, state, nation and even the world.

Since Easter Sunday 2000, Frazer has increased the number of Sunday morning worship services to six by starting three Contemporary Worship services. In 2003, a seventh service, totally in Spanish, was begun and a full time Hispanic minister was hired. A Chinese language congregation was launched at Frazer that now meets in another location. Today, the Contemporary Worship service is translated into Korean and American Sign Language.

In 2016, Frazer planted a site in the Pike Road community which was launched as Century United Methodist Church in 2017, and we hope to continue to be used by God to plant new churches in our region or around the world.

The future

Frazer enjoys a rich heritage, but we believe our greatest days are yet to come. Not because we are such great people, but because we think God is at work in the world, and wants to do great things through us. A glimpse of where we are headed:

Welcoming All People: Frazer is one of the most diverse churches in our area, and we believe God desires for us to become even more diverse as we reach new people with the love of Christ from every part of our community and beyond.

Biblical Foundations: Frazer remains committed to the anchor of truth found in the Bible amidst the shifting seas of our confused culture, but all too often our society has become biblically illiterate. We are developing new ways for people to engage with the Bible so that everyone can encounter the life-transforming power of God's Word for themselves.

Family Focus: we see families under stress all around us, but we believe there is hope in Christ. In addition to our excellent Children's Ministry and Student Ministry, Frazer is developing a coordinated family ministry strategy to strengthen marriages, equip parents, heal broken families, and care for orphans and foster children.

Neighborhood Impact: we will continue our heritage of serving the community through more focused partnerships to meet the needs of our neighbors with lasting solutions. Our Transformation Montgomery project has opened the door to provide tutoring and after school programs in Chisholm Elementary and launched a new preschool program in 2017. In 2020 we expanded this ministry with Reader to Leader, a program with a vision to increase literacy in our city by providing one-on-one reading tutors for 1st-3rd graders in underprivileged areas, beginning with Chisholm Elementary.
