What we believe

We Are Christian

As members of the universal Church, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in affirming the historic creeds and beliefs of the Christian faith. 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. We proclaim salvation through faith in Christ alone.

We Are Holiness

We believe that God makes the freedom of a holy life possible through Christ, and calls everyone to live in it. This is a holiness of heart which translates into a holiness of life. We believe in the prevenient, saving and sanctifying grace of God, which transforms our lives and empowers us to live lives that are pleasing to Him.

We Are Missional

God has commissioned His church to spread the gospel to every person. We do this by engaging our community through proclaiming the Gospel, discipling believers, and serving others in ministry. We also actively support mission efforts regionally and across the world.

The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Organized in 1908, the denomination is now home to about 2.3 million members worshipping in more than 29,000 local congregations in 162 world areas. 

We believe in one God–the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living. 

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually. 

We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost. 

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes in the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin. 

We believe that believers are to be sanctioned wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers. 

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
