In July of 1971, Rev. Willis
Scott came to Caldwell and conducted
evangelistic services in the old Noble Theatre. The response was so
tremendous that he continued holding four services each week.
On October 3, 1971, Rev. Floyd Flemming, Superintendent of the
Akron District, organized the Caldwell First Church of The Nazarene

and proceeded with renovation plans which began in December of that
Renovation work was completed in April 1973.
The congregation moved to our current facility located at 6 Cumberland
