At its core, the church is the community of disciples of Jesus. A disciple is a follower of Jesus — a person who desires to learn from and be changed by Jesus Christ. Here, at Perry Church of the Nazarene, we are simply a community of people who desire to have Jesus at our center to lead, inspire and empower us to live as He did.
We become a disciple the moment we accept Christ as our Savior. From then on, we embark on a journey of constant learning, growing and changing into the image of Christ. This journey requires us to make Jesus the center of our lives by attending to our personal spiritual growth and by participating in the community of disciples. Both are critical to our growth as a disciple.
Through Celebration, Connection and Care we journey together in our pursuit of Christlikeness.

- Connection: the coming together in
fellowship and study to grow deeply together into the image of Christ.
- Care: the way we serve Christ, each other and the
We believe these three steps of the journey are all integrated and vital to the life of a disciple and our community. Your next step might be joining a Bible study or a small group or a discipleship class. It may be meeting our children and student volunteers and learning about discipleship opportunities for them. It may be using your gifts, skills and experience to serve at church or in the community. Whatever your stage of life and place in the journey of following Christ, we have a place for you.
