The Church of The Nazarene is a denomination which believe that we can live holy lives by the power given to us by God's Holy Spirit. We believe, preach and teach the Bible as the Word of God Himself. We also believe that anyone can find eternal life by trusting completely in Jesus and turning away from a life of disobeying God.
We are a church located in the rural township of Arcade, NY which is approximately 45 minutes south of Buffalo, NY. Our congregation can range from 30 -40 on any given Sunday morning.
At Crossroads you will find people who love Jesus, love their community and love one another. We are growing in spiritual maturity as we reach out into our community being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. We welcome all to join us on our journey through life. We don't have to make that journey alone, and, we certainly cannot make it without Jesus by our side. He is our strength and our salvation.
Tom Calzone is our pastor & was recently ordained in May of 2021. He and his wife MaryBeth have three children and five grandchildren. He previously served as an Associate Pastor at the Jamestown Church of the Nazarene, for almost ten years, where he was the pastor of outreach and evangelism. There he helped with several outreach ministries in the community. Tom was also very active in the sports community in the Jamestown area serving as a high school football coach and character speaker for several high school athletic teams throughout the southwestern area of New York State. Tom and MaryBeth are humbled and truly honored that the Lord would allow them to serve the church and the people of the Arcade community where they are looking forward to being active in the community and bringing the light of Jesus with them. To God Be The Glory Forever!
