What We Believe

 

“We Are Servants Of Christ, Reaching The Lost, And Growing Disciples.”

The Church of the Nazarene is the largest denomination in the classical Wesleyan-Holiness tradition.  Organized in 1908 to spread scriptural holiness across the lands, the denomination is now home to about 2.3 million members worshipping in more than 29,000 local congregations in 159 world areas.

The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. Our mission is to make Christlike disciples in the nations. 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 also 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.
