Beliefs

The Church of the Nazarene is a Christian denomination, following God as revealed in the Bible.  The beliefs of the Church of the Nazarene are consistent with the creeds affirmed by Christians through many centuries.  We believe:

  • There is one God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • The Old and New Testaments of the Bible, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
  • All people are born with a fallen nature and inclined to evil.
  • Those who remain impenitent will be ultimately lost, separated from God forever.
  • Anyone who repents and trusts in Jesus for forgiveness can be saved from the dominion of sin through his atoning death on the cross.
  • God sanctifies people, providing not only forgiveness from sin but also a pure heart that can resist sin.
  • The Holy Spirit bears witness to the “new life” of those who trust in God.
  • The Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and a final divine judgment will take place.
