“It is my desire to assist people in seeking the face of God and coming to a full knowledge of the heart of our holy God who desires for his people an abundant life in this world and the joy of his presence through eternity.”

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.                                                                                                    John 1:12-13


Our History

In 1953, as a mission program at Walbrook Memorial Evangelical United Brethren Church, Milford Mill Church was established by dedicated Christians who answered a call to serve their Lord in a growing community. The E.U.B. and Methodist Churches merged in 1968, and Milford Mill United Methodist Church assumed its membership in the Baltimore Conference of the United Methodist Church. Milford is now a multi-cultural and multi-generational congregation in a suburban setting with a beautiful campus consisting of a children's development center, a chapel, a 250-seat sanctuary and a parsonage. Worship is Spirit lead, with 5 choirs and a pastor with a compassion for people.
