At Kankakee First Church of the Nazarene we believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with God, be empowered by the Holy Spirit, discover their gifts, and use them for God's glory. Join us for our Sunday services!

Thus, our vision is to help people come to.........


We want you to know the God who created you, loves you, and pursues you so that you can…


Find freedom from the things that hold you back from being who God created you to be so that you can…


Discover your God-purpose. You have God-given gifts, experiences, and passions that God wants to reveal to you so that you can...


Live it out to expand God's kingdom and bring healing and restoration to the people of this world.

What to expect

You belong

We’re all about making you feel at home — from the moment you pull into the parking lot. You’ll be greeted at the door, and, if you have questions, our greeters can assist you.

Come as you are

Don’t worry about dressing to impress. We’d rather you just come as you are- whether you’re in jeans, khakis, a jacket or flannel, you’ll fit right in.

The Service

Our worship services begin with contemporary Christian praise and worship songs and then our pastor delivers a practical message that explores God’s truth and how we can live out such truth in our daily lives.

Your Family

We believe kids + teens  are important to God and are some of the most vital members of any faith community. We are committed to helping you help them become life-long followers of God. We have services for ages 0-12 th grade.

Current Series

Following God is not easy at times - Jesus warned of us of this much. There are challenges we will face, struggles we will walk through, and scary or uncertain leaps of faith. Being bold for our faith, trusting God in uncertain times, and allowing the Spirit to sanctify us can be really, really hard. The question is - is He worthy?
When God asks us to do hard things, remembering why He is worthy is the anchor that allows us to keep giving our "yes" no matter what. It is also the compelleing story that we get to share with those who have not yet come to believe in this God who is the creator and sustainer of all things, who is faithful, constant, who is with us, believes in us, and is always good.


At K1 we are a Pray First church, which means we pray before we move forward.
We believe that God hears and answers prayer and changes us through prayer. We want to pray for you!
