Our Beliefs

The Church of the Nazarene

We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.

As a global community of faith, we are commissioned to take the Good News of life in Jesus Christ to people everywhere and to spread the message of scriptural holiness across the lands.

The Church of the Nazarene bonds together individuals who have made Jesus Christ Lord of their lives, sharing in Christian fellowship, and seeking to strengthen each other in faith development through worship, preaching, training, and service to others.

We strive to express the compassion of Jesus Christ to all persons along with our personal commitment to Christlike living.

As a local and global Church we hold to the following core beliefs:

We believe:

In one God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

That the Old and New Testament Scriptures contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living

That man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil

That God offers to everyone; forgiveness, love, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a

personal relationship with Him

That the atonement through Jesus Christ is for everyone; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is

justified and saved from the dominion of sin

That the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers

That our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will be made
