Who Are These Nazarenes?
The Church of the Nazarene
is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition,
tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to
spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christlike living) across the
lands. Today the Church of the Nazarene is located in 151 world areas.
The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission
church. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy,
purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is
over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God
through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people
The Church of the Nazarene is
also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a
deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to
witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the
infilling of the Holy Spirit.
