Our History

Oil City Church of the Nazarene was organized on May 10, 1910 in a building on Spring Street, which included 17 charter members. As the congregation grew, its location changed many times, prompting the church members to begin a building fund and in 1920, a new sanctuary was constructed on East Third Street, by all of the men of the congregation. It existed there until 1955 when church members approved a plan to build a new church at the corner of East Second and Imperial Streets. Several additions and improvements have been constructed over the years to present the building as it is today.
