Who We Are

Message from pastor Steve

 
 

As the Lead pastor at MCN, I want to thank you for checking out our website.  our hope for this website is that it would provide you with the information you desire to learn about our local church as well as our global church.  on our website you will find information about our various ministries as well as helpful links to find out more information about the Global Nazarene Network of Churches.

At MCN you will find two distinct opportunities for corporate worship. 

We offer a Sunday morning worship opportunity at 10:45am.  We also offer group meetings for all ages at 9:30am prior to our morning worship service.   

on Sunday evenings we offer a very different style of worship service called The remnant.  please check out The remnant tab on our website to read about how we do Church Done Different Sundays at 5pm.

In addition to our Sunday worship opportunities, we offer weekly opportunities to gather together and grow together in our faith in Jesus Christ.  please take time to look over the options for ministry connections or call our church office @ 785-539-2851 and connect with one of the staff for more information.

Most of all, I would like to invite you to come and worship with us.

Hope to meet you soon

MCN Local Heritage

 
 
Our local fellowship was organized with 13 charter members August 23, 1936.  The first meeting place was located at 708 Moro Street with Reverend vernon Shetler as the first pastor.  It was a one room building in which all Sunday School classes and services were held. There were no conveniences except electricity .  A few years later the church board saw the need for adequate Sunday School rooms and voted to raise the church building and add a basement for Sunday School rooms as well as a furnace and a bathroom. This project was entitled

“The Little Engine That Could.”

By 1960 the church had outgrown the building, so the District Superintendent, church board, and congregation voted to purchase a building at the corner of 10th and Fremont.  This location served the church well for more than 30 years. 

In 1978, the church purchased four acres of ground at the Intersection of Kimball Ave and Seth Child Blvd to build on in the future.

Nazarene Core Belief

 

-We Are a Christian people-

as members of the Church universal, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic Trinitarian creedal statements of Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience. more

-We Are a Holiness people-

God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace, called by various terms including “entire sanctification” and “baptism with the Holy Spirit”-cleansing us from all sin, renewing us in the image of God, empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and producing in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness. more

-We Are a Missional people-

We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom. our mission: begins in worship, ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and prepares men and women for Christian service through Christian higher education. more
