The Church of the Nazarene in the West began with the organization, in October 1895, of Los Angeles First Church of the Nazarene, under the leadership of Phineas F. Bresee and J. P. Widney, with around 100 charter members. Other congregations were organized in the ensuing years, and the denomination eventually reached from Chicago northwest to Washington State, and southwest to San Diego. It united with the Association of Pentecostal Churches of America in October 1907, forming the Pentecostal Church of the Nazarene. At the time of union, the Church of the Nazarene reported 48 congregations and 3,827 members.
A collection of the manuals for the Church of the Nazarene published quadrennially from 1919-the present.
