We want to make a lasting difference in your life,
in the Permian Basin, and in the world.
Our mission is to love God and each other
as we help lead people to become
Christ-like, Disciple-Making Disciples.
That's how we're able to make a difference,
and it's the driving force behind everything we do.
Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we'll help you find it. It could start with joining us regularly, finding God's vision for your life, serving or giving.
You don't have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you. Here you can be a part of a small group, a LifeGroup, to join you on your journey.
Strong families start with solid foundations. That's why we partner with parents to help raise the next generation to become followers of Christ. In Kid's Church your children have opportunities every Sunday to grow in relationships with each other and with God.
Our Community and World
We are passionate about serving the global community and demonstrating God's love to others. Whether in person or online, individually or in groups, within our church and around the world, we are focused on supporting and engaging in relationships that provide relief and restoration to a hurting world.
In 1947 First Church of the Nazarene started in Odessa with 10 people in a motel meeting room. After 20 years worshiping in one building the congregation relocated and built at our present location. In 1981 a full size gymnasium, commercial kitchen, additional classrooms, courtyard and restrooms we're constructed. Today we are blessed with 35,000 Sq Ft to serve the people of the Permian Basin.
We believe the church is not a building. We believe the church is people. Together we are passionate about serving others and making a difference in the lives of kids and adults, singles and married couples. Our goal is to lead people to become Christ-Like, Disciple-Making Disciples.
A Global Church
The Church of the Nazarene was founded in 1908 in Texas and today has over 2.6 million people attending in more than 30,000 churches in nearly 200 countries worldwide.
It sponsors 12 liberal arts colleges, 3 graduate seminaries, and 41 undergraduate Bible/Theological and Nursing colleges. Nazarene Publishing House is one of the largest denominational publishers in the world.
As a global community of faith, we are commissioned to take the Good News of life in Jesus Christ to people everywhere and to spread the message of Christ-Like living across the lands.
