WHO WE ARE
We are Nazarene!
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.
Globally, the Church of the Nazarene is comprised of over 30,000 churches in 163 world areas.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
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 on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified 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.

OUR CORE VALUES
We Love! We are servant leaders! We are loved!
"We love becuase HE first loved us."
1 John 4:19
We encourage! We empower! We equip! Everyone!
“He died for everyone so that those who received His new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised of them.”
2 Corinthians 5:15
We are anchored! We are accountable! Ambassadors!
"So, we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”
2 Corinthians 5:20
We are world changers and disciple makers! Lives are transformed when disciples are made! We are not just hearers of the Word, but doers! Disciples!
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
