About Obetz Church of the Nazarene
Obetz Church of the Nazarene exists:
to bring people to Jesus’ Way,
to teach them His Word,
to involve them in His Work,
and together reach His World.
God has called Obetz Church of the Nazarene to reach people of all ages with the
Good News of Jesus Christ. We believe this call is to bring in the harvest, which is all around us. (John 4:35)
Through Christ we are able to offer hope, help and healing to the hassled and hurting of our area.
The focus of our ministries and outreach locally is the South end of Columbus and the communities in and around the southern outer belt.
This focus area is a circle with a five-mile radius centered at our property on Groveport Road.
In a larger sense our vision is on a global level. The thrust of our mission department is to spread the Gospel all around the world. (Mark 16:15)
We believe God has been hand selecting and bringing together individuals for this very time to accomplish this vision He has for us.
Through empowered leadership, gift-oriented ministry, passionate spirituality, functional structures, inspiring worship services, holistic small groups, need-oriented evangelism and loving relationships God will use us to “compel them to come in” and then He will trust us to “make disciples” of them by “teaching them” about Him. (Matthew 28:19-20)
Our goal is to see God glorified by having as many lives changed families reconciled, and communities transformed as possible. We want to offer a place of refuge. We want to be a people of redemption. We want to make a difference.
