A Community of Faith

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 everywhere. 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. The Church of the Nazarene is a global community of faith composed of individuals who have made Jesus Christ Lord of their lives. We share our life together in Christian fellowship, seeking to strengthen each other in faith development through worship, teaching, preaching, fellowship and service. Beyond this, we strive to express the compassion of Jesus Christ to all persons along with our personal commitment to Christ-like living. Each local congregation of the Church of the Nazarene is a faith community, ready to greet you in Jesus' name. There you will discover opportunities not only to encounter Jesus as your Savior and Lord, but to grow as a follower of Christ. Local churches offer ministry opportunities for serving others. Fellowship, worship, training and education are all part of our life together in Christ.

Brian Arner

arnerWe are privileged to have Christian Recording Artist Brian Arner for a Sunday Morning concert February 21 starting at 10:30 AM. "Brian Arner is one of those singers that takes hold of your heart and will not let go. When he knelt at the altar as a boy and gave his heart and life to the Lord, Brian had no idea that God had gifted him with an incredible ability to sing Although he was exposed to music as he grew up in the church, it was not until he was twenty-three years of age that his voice was revealed. Since that time, Brian has been singing from his heart the praises of Jesus Christ. Since beginning his full-time ministry 24 years ago, Brian has completed seven solo recordings. These recordings minister to the hearts and souls of all who hear them and have been played across the country on numerous radio stations. Although Brian is a skilled musician, he is first and foremost a music minister. Nearly every week of the year Brian can be found leading worship and offering solo concerts and special music across the country. Brian believes "authentic worship and praise is an expression of what Christ is doing in your heart". “We can do that through old songs and new songs".
