BELIEVE

Description

The Church of the Nazarene is the largest denomination in the classical Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. The doctrine that distinguishes the Church of the Nazarene and other Wesleyan denominations from most other Christian denominations is that of entire sanctification. Nazarenes believe that God calls Christians to a life of holy living that is marked by an act of God, cleansing the heart from original sin and filling the individual with love for God and humankind.

Image

Our Articles of faith are our foundational beliefs, and set forth the essential truths which guide every area of practice.

Image

Our Statement of Mission defines who we are, why we exist, and our reason for being.

Image

Our Core Values are the essence of our identity and support the vision of our denomination and help shape our culture.
