Everyone is welcome at Portsmouth First Church of the Nazarene. Just like you, we come from a variety of social-economic backgrounds. We are young and old, married, single, divorced, and widowed. We embrace our differences while praising the Lord who brought us all together. We are a group of people who are striving to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. We invite you to check out what we believe and our service times. We would love to have you join us for an upcoming service or simply stop by to say hello.
