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 156 world areas. The Church of the
Nazarene is a Great Commission church. Our mission is to make Christlike
disciples in the nations. 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
