Who We Are

Who We Are

Elkhart Northside Church of the Nazarene is a welcoming little community of imperfect people learning to become like a perfectly loving God. Our church has existed for over 65 years. In that time we have continued to strive towards helping people connect with God and with each other. We have attempted to be a blessing to our town and to meet people’s needs. We have a rich past, and these days we are focused on the present and the future – believing that the Spirit is working within us right now and giving hope for our ministries in the future.
