About Columbia First Nazarene
Begun in 1934 on Tobacco Street in downtown Columbia under the leadership of Rev. “Red” Kelly, Columbia First Church of the Nazarene (CFN) has always been a church with ministry to the community at its heart. In 1943, the congregation moved to a new brick church on Catawba Street where they would gather until 1968 when congregation moved to its current location in the Saint Andrews community. In 1993, CFN broke ground on their current worship space and in 2006, ground was broke on the gymnasium.
We hope you’ll find your place at CFN as we write the next chapter of this story together.
