The Selma Methodist Church is a historic church located north of AR 4 in the town of Selma, Arkansas. The wood frame church was built c. 1874, and is a well preserved rural Gothic Revival structure. Its main facade has narrow Gothic windows with pointed arches flanking the center entry, which is topped by a similarly pointed transom. The side walls have five windows each, matching those on the main facade. The apse is located in a half-octagon bay on the north side, whose two windows are also like the others, only shorter. The main entrance is topped by a small octagonal bell chamber mounted on a square base; there is no steeple.
