We want to thank you for taking a moment to visit our website.  It is "brand new" and just getting started, so the content is a bit slim at the moment.  Please check back later for a more developed site.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest!  We have room for you.  

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God and applicable to our daily life
  • Ministries for various ages throughout the week
  • A safe place to be accepted, loved, and spiritually strengthened.

  • REFUEL Midweek Video Devotional

    We invite you to watch Pastor Steve's midweek video devotional on our Facebook page or on YouTube (at "Portland, Indiana, First Nazarene").  This 10-minute video is designed to give you a "spiritual refueling" in the middle of your week! 


    This Summer, Pastor Steve will share a series of messages called, "Did God Really Say....?"  The title of the series comes from Genesis 3 when the serpent asked Eve, "Did God really say....?"  We will look at topics from society's perspective, then see what God and His Word says about those same topics. 

    The relevant topics include the following:   marriage; lust; truthfulness; homosexuality; gender; Satan; evangelism; Hell; Heaven; and finances.  

    We invite you to join us in worship throughout the Summer!
