About us

Our church got its start in 1985 when two congregations (Lakota Nazarene and Eaton Rd. Nazarene) merged together to form the Tri-County Church of the Nazarene, with Rev. Dan Walters as their pastor. The congregation worshiped in the old Lakota High School for a year and a half while the church facility was under construction. Ground breaking took place on September 7, 1986 and the mortgage was burned in 2007. TCN has striven to honor God by ministering to its people and the community through several ministries with a focus on discipleship, outreach and worship.


After 32 years of faithful and loving service and dedication to the Lord and our church family, Pastor Dan & Darlene Walters retired as our pastor in July 2017. In July of 2018, our congregation welcomed Dr. Tom & Marilyn Ward as our new pastor, who come to us from Prattville, Alabama.

Our Beliefs:

We believe

in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

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, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.

We believe

in the verbal plenary inspiration of the accepted Canon of Scriptures as originally given and believe that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal, scientific and historical as well as moral and theological. (II Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13)
