At Tower Community, our purpose is to make fully devoted followers of Christ. This is the driving purpose behind everything that we do and defines who we are. To accomplish; this, we want to come along side and help you with:


Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we’ll help you find it.It could start with ‘finding a group of friends, finding a place that is safe, discovering a relationship with Jesus Christ, or serving needs of others. You don’t have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you. Find a Sunday school class or small group. Make connections. Find strength. Find purpose.


Strong families start with solid foundations. That’s why we partner with parents to help and equip you to raise the next generation to become followers of Christ. Your children and teens have opportunities throughout the week to grow relationships with each other and with God.


You are not alone. According US Census Bureau in 2017, 45% of Americans are single. That’s OK – so was the Apostle Paul who wrote most of the New Testament. Scripture affirms singles and encourages you to realize that this season of your life could be used to build an incredible relationship with God and serving Him. We want to help you in your journey!


We are passionate about serving the global community and demonstrating God’s love to others. Whether in person or online, individually or in groups, within our church and around the world, we are focused on supporting and engaging in relationships that provide relief and restoration to a hurting world.
We are a member of the International Church of the Nazarene.
As Nazarenes, we believe the following:
  • We are a Great Commission church. As a global community of faith, we are commissioned to TAKE THE GOOD NEWS OF LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST to people everywhere and to spread the message of scriptural holiness across lands.
  • WE BELIEVE in one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • •WE BELIEVE that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
  • WE BELIEVE that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
  • WE BELIEVE that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
  • WE BELIEVE that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
  • WE BELIEVE that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
  • WE BELIEVE that our Lord will return soon, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.


Our church staff and leadership look forward to meeting you on your next visit to our church!
