WHO WE ARE
The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, which traces its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. The church was founded with the goal of spreading the message of scriptural holiness (Christ-living) across the lands. The denomination is now home to about 2.5 million members worshipping in more than 30,000 local congregations in 162 world areas.
We Are a Christian People
We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over through a personal relationship with Him.
We Are a Holiness People
God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness and empowers us to a life of victory over sin.
We Are a Missional People
As a sent people, we respond to the call of Christ to live our lives empowered by the Holy Spirit to "go into all the world" and witness to others. Our mission begins in worship, and continues in our discipleship and maturation process as we minister to our world through compassion and evangelism. *****************************
