About First Nazarene Church

First Nazarene Church is a growing, vibrant church community that desires to reach and impact our local community. Our congregation dates back to 1904 but we have shifted to our post-modern culture to successfully reach those from God in our context today. In fact, we’ve grown by 20% in the last two years by reaching our target, young families, primarily through NazPreschool (120 students), Nazarene Recreation (3,000+ registrations a year), NazStudents and NazKids ministries.

First Naz's mission is to know God and serve others, and today our ministry is at a crucial moment of continuing to fuel our momentum of reaching those far from God while discipling those in all faith stages in our church to be deeper and closer to Jesus.
