Our Story

How it all started...

Common Ground Church of the Nazarene was born out of the passion to take the church beyond the walls and into the community.  In 2009 two churches, Crossroads Community and Solid Rock Church of the Nazarene, merged.  While each congregation was different in so many ways, they shared a passion for reaching their community for Christ and believed God was leading them to become one.

This passion has driven our first decade of existence as we established community ministries like Kings Kingdom Childcare, Gaffer Media, and CG Youth Center.  We also held events like feeding neighborhoods, biker rallies, toys and coats for community children, and Thanksgiving food boxes.  Our heart is to impact lives through Jesus' love.

Expanding the vision...

In 2016, Common Ground's board voted to become a church of churches, expanding our reach by birthing other campuses and churches. We have invested the last several years investigating and preparing for that God-sized calling.  We are currently preparing to launch a second campus in New Haven, Indiana.  We are taking our time, doing our homework, and planning thoroughly. But, we are committed to answer God's call to expand His church.

Common Ground Church is committed to expanding Christ's Church through ministry to Decatur and other cities like New Haven. We are committed to strong Biblical preaching, worship that communicates the love of God in styles unchurched people will recognize, small groups where people can study the Bible and build friendships, world evangelism, Christian higher education, and ministry to the communities to which God calls us.
