What We Believe
We are a community of believers helping people to: Find Jesus, Know Jesus, Love Jesus, Share Jesus
To demonstrate God's love so that every person in our community will know that he or she is important, loved, and accepted in Jesus' name.
THE CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE AS A GLOBAL DENOMINATION HAS THREE CORE VALUES:
#1 We Are a Christian People - We stand hand in hand with every other Christian church which proclaims the Lordship of Jesus Christ and affirms the historic Christian creeds such as the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed.
#2 We Are a Holiness People - God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that God not only wants to forgive us of our sins, but also continually help us live more and more like Jesus, empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves. We believe that Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.
#3 We Are a Missional People - We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:1). We also believe strongly that missions is not just about sharing God's love to those in far lands, but also to our neighbors, coworkers, and classmates. more>>>
