Who Are The Nazarenes

The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christlike living) across the lands. Today the Church of the Nazarene is located in 151 world areas.

The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.

The Church of the Nazarene is a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

 

Our Mission

 
Love God.  Compassion for People.  Ministry to our Community.

 

Our Beliefs:
 

1. God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

2. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people.

3. The Holy Spirit is God’s presence in the world to make men and women aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives within every Christian from the moment of salvation to lead and empower them in the ways of God.

4. The Bible is God’s word to us. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs.

5. Humanity is made in the spiritual image of God, yet sin has marred our relationship with God.

6. Salvation is God’s free gift offered to us to bring us back into fellowship with Him.

7. Sanctification is the setting apart or the new identity we have in Christ and the filling of the Holy Spirit for a victorious life in Christ.

8. Eternity is the span of time that we will spend either separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.

9. Sacraments: Baptism is a testimony of the death of self.  It represents life and resurrection in the new life with Christ. Communion is a memorial for the gift Christ has given us on the Cross.
