Mission Statement

Our mission is to be a Spirit-filled, growing, dynamic and loving church who creatively and effectively ministers Jesus Christ to the needs of the entire family by evangelizing, worshiping, discipling, nurturing, showing compassion, and providing fellowship.

Strategy for Mission

The Middletown Church of the Nazarene accepts as our fundamental task the proclamation of the Good News of full salvation through Jesus Christ. We follow the doctrines, standards, and polity as set forth in the Manual of the Church of the Nazarene.

The Vision for Our Church

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.


- Acts 1:8 (NIV)

Pray First!

We believe in "Praying First" and we believe God loves to hear the prayers of His people!! Don’t forget to take advantage of these great prayer opportunities at our church throughout the week:

  • Men's Weekly Study/Prayer: Tuesday at 6:30am
  • Women's Weekly Prayer: Thursdays at 8:15am
  • Women's Monthly Prayer: First Saturday of month at 9:00am
  • Men's Monthly Prayer: Second Saturday of month at 7:30am

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.


- Colossians 4:2
