About Us

Our Mission

Knowing Christ...  Growing in Christ...  Serving Christ...  Sharing Christ...


Our Church

Willowwood Church is built around serving families and being God's family.  If you are looking for a place to belong...  a place where God's love is evident...  a place where you can make a difference...  then Willlowwood Church is your new church home! 

Our services are designed to help people make authentic connections with God.  Our desire is for every person who attends our church to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord, Jesus Christ. 

Our music is a blend of the majestic hymns of the church and current worship music.


Our Beliefs

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

Our History

Taylor Park Church of the Nazarene had a humble beginning.  A small group of believers began worshipping together in a small, abandoned grocery store on South Elm Street in 1959.

Within a few months, the church purchased two lots at the corner of McCormick and Willowwood --- an area on the underdeveloped, southern edge of the city.  In 1967, Reverend Bruce Chamberlain began a term of pastoral service that would span thirty-four years and see the church grow and become firmly established. 

In 1967, the church purchased two adjoining lots and erected a two-story education building with paved parking.

In 1980, the church enlarged and remodeled the sanctuary to accommodate the growing congregation.

We now sit under the leadership of Pastor Mark Ramsey.  We believe God is making Willowwwood Church into a lighthouse that shows God's love to our community and our world.  We are excited about the future God is creating as we continue to grow together.
