Our Core Values

We Are Loving

We say, “come as you are”. We love people because God loves people.

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

-John 13:35

We Are Authentic

We keep it real with ourselves and others.

Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.

-James 5:16

We Are Growing

We say, “come as you are, but don’t stay as you are”.

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.

-Ephesians 4:15

We Are Generous

We go out of our way to give ourselves away.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son.

-John 3:16

We Are Optimistic

We believe it can be done.

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

-Philippians 4:13

We Are Missional

We join God’s mission wherever we are.

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

-Ephesians 2:10

Our Beliefs

WE ARE A CHRISTIAN PEOPLE

We are united with all believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe that in divine love God offers to all people forgiveness of sins and restored relationship. In being reconciled to God, we believe that we are also to be reconciled to one another, loving each other as we have been loved by God and forgiving each other as we have been forgiven by God.

WE ARE A HOLINESS PEOPLE

God, who is Holy, calls us to a life of Holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace, called entire sanctification, cleansing us from all sin, renewing us in the image of God, empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and producing in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.

WE ARE A MISSIONAL PEOPLE

As a sent people, we respond to the call of Christ and live empowered by the Holy Spirit to “go into all the world” witnessing to the Lordship of Christ. Our mission begins in worship, encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and ministers to our world through compassion and evangelism.

WHO GOD IS TO US

The Church of the Nazarene holds these beliefs to be true. They are common to churches world-wide.

We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race

We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly 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
