Who We Are & What We Believe
The Church of the Nazarene is a “PROTESTANT, EVANGELICAL, HOLINESS” Church committed to reaching its community with the Biblical Messages of SALVATION and SANCTIFICATION. Our Christian Heritage is traced back to the Wesleyan Revivals of the 18th Century led by John Wesley. He believed that the Bible not only taught SALVATION and FORGIVENESS of sins through the Blood of Jesus Christ, but also SANCTIFICATION and HEART HOLINESS through the infilling and cleansing power of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. Therefore, we endeavor to teach and disciple Christians into a life of Spiritual Maturity and Victory by daily living in the power of the Holy Spirit of God.
