What we believe!

The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Organized in 1908, the denomination is now home to about 2.3 million members worshipping in more than 29,000 local congregations in 162 world areas.

We are a Christian church which upholds and professes the following:

Jesus is the Son of God who died in our place, on the cross, for our sins.
The Bible is the Word of God to mankind. Inspired by God it is good for encouragement and correction in all areas of life.

We are a Holiness Church:

In connection with Jesus, our lives are being transformed. He is renewing us from the inside out so that our lives are more than just a long list of apologies for sin, but a testimony of His grace!

We are a Missional church:

We are commissioned to take the Good News of Christ to the world around us - locally and globally. We share Christ out of joy for what He has done for us, with love and respect for those around us.
