About Us

Welcome to Cory Community

"We at Cory Community Church of the Nazarene continue to honor our calling to be Kingdom people. We rely upon the gift of fellowship and community to equip each other to fulfill our mission of reflecting the love of Christ to all those that God has placed within our lives.


Furthermore, we pray that we are found faithful to the Holy Scriptures and live out our strong Wesleyan holiness heritage. May we continue to be a missional people, dependent upon God, and unified by the Holy Spirit to love our neighbor as ourselves."
