Thank you for visiting our website!

We hope this site provides you with a helpful overview of what West Side Church of the Nazarene is about.  Our congregation is composed of warm and loving people, including many who have encountered the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. 

We are currently living as a-church-in-transition.  We are relocating to an incredible facility God has provided us just minutes west of our present location.  We will continue to meet at our West Grand Avenue location through December 2014 with our first service at our new home in January 2015. 

If you are looking for a church home, we would love to have you worship with us and share in the amazing adventure God is leading us into at the NEW West Side Church of the Nazarene!

On August 15, 2014, we sold our property on West Grand Avenue to Akorn Pharmaceuticals.  On September 12, 2014, we purchased the facility at 788 North Sunnyside Road here in Decatur (on Highway 36 near North Sunnyside Road).  This will be the NEW West Side Church of the Nazarene!  God has worked miraculously in the sale of our property and in the acqusition of our new church home.  We anticipate our first service at the new location will be in early January 2015.  We praise God for His miraculous provision!  We invite you to come worship with us at our West Grand Avenue location during this transition time, then join with us at the new location in January! 


We would be honored to have you join us in worship this Sunday!  You will enjoy great contemporary music, relevant and applicable messages from our pastor, a loving atmosphere, and people who genuinely care about you.  We have a place for you here at the West Side Church of the Nazarene!
