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.
