Word of Life Church of the Nazarene

Our Church Can Be Your Home!

The Word of Life Church of the Nazarene (formally the Union Church of the Nazarene) was established in a tent meeting on July 7, 1926 by Rev. J.W. Roach.  Since then the church has grown in family and fellowship under the leadership of 13 different pastors.
Rev. Timothy R. Cole has served as Pastor since January 2005.  Originally from Wellington, KS, he is a 1991 graduate of MidAmerica Nazarene University.  Pastor Tim previously served as Minister of Youth in Salina, KS and Mountain Home, AR; he also held Senior Pastor positions in Madill, Wister, and Tulsa, OK.

Along with Pastor, we are blessed with his wife Janette, son Chip, and daughter Ellianna.  We thank God every day for this wonderful family!

"Words can't express how great it is to pastor such a wonderful group of people.  I love the Church of the Nazarene because it is a holiness church.  Quite simply, that means we believe that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is something that will positively impact every area of our life.  As we grow in our relationship with Christ, our behavior and lifestyle will begin to reflect Christ in us. I invite you to join us at the Word of Life Church of the Nazarene where we are all on a journey of growing in our relationship with Christ."  ---Rev. Timothy R. Cole
