Formerly known as Taylor Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church, Taylor was the first "African-American" church of its denomination in Northern California. The charter granted on October 29, 1921, was the direct result of years of prayer, sacrifice and determination by our twenty-two founders.
These devout men and women, from throughout the United States, came to Oakland seeking a better life for themselves and those who were to follow. The impact that Taylor Church had upon the community is a testament to the Founder's hard work and religious status in Oakland, the state and the nation.
The church became a United Methodist Church by denominational merger in 1968.
Taylor has continued to grow in its membership and service to the Greater Bay Area community. Through many years of service Taylor has been blessed to have spiritually uplifting pastors, dedicated Christian members, and outstanding religious services and programs.
Today, Taylor's membership is a diverse congregation with worshipers from all stations of life, who support the church and the community with their prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.
