wE ARE ORDINARY PEOPLE BEING TRANSFORMED INTO PASSIONATE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS WHO JOIN GOD IN THE REMAKING OF ALL THINGS.


OUR VISION

We believe God became who we are so we can become who He is. We're committed to being and making people who learn how to do what Jesus said to do. 

We believe that Jesus is making all things new. As we say "yes" to Jesus, God remakes our lives and invites us to join Him in creating a new world where everything is remade. 

Simply put: We exist to transform ordinary people into passionate followers of Jesus who join God in the remaking of all things.


OUR STORY

We’ve been here since 1928. First Church of the Nazarene started with a prayer meeting under a tent in downtown Lafayette. It began with just a few locals who were inspired that their lives could be remade to look like Jesus’ life this side of heaven. Those first tent meetings were full of anticipation for what God might do.

Much has changed since 1928. Our church has gathered in several different locations; we’ve grown and expanded our ministry opportunities; God has called different pastors to serve our congregation during different seasons.

The most important thing has stayed the same: our church’s absolute certainty that God can remake people into passionate followers of Jesus.
