Our Statement of Faith
"Our Message"- What We believe...
The Church of the Nazarene is a Bible believing 'body of believers'.
We believe in one Creator, God, who reveals Himself as Father, Son and Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; yes He is God!
We believe the Bible is God's inspired and relevant Word, that it's truths hold
the key to a personal relationship with Him.
We believe everyone has done wrong or bad things and need God's grace and forgiveness,
which does, and will, come through Jesus' death on the cross.
In other words, the rest of your days could be the best of your days.
We believe God draws us to Himself but the decision to respond is ours.
We believe an individual must turn from a lifestyle of doing bad things, sinning,
and trust Christ for forgiveness and eternal life.
We believe that as Christians we are called to offer our whole lives to God, in a moment of surrender, followed by a lifetime and lifestyle of obedience to His Leading. In response to a willingness to offer ourselves to Him, God cleanses our hearts from the attitude of Sin (the Biblical word for this is sanctification). With our lives given to God, His Spirit can fully mold us into Christ-likeness, evidenced by His Love at work in our attitudes and actions.
We believe the Church is the Body of Christ, carrying on His purposes in the world. We believe God can bring healing; physical, emotional and spiritual.
We believe Jesus will one day return to take His followers home to heaven.
We practice the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, not to keep rituals, but to know and worship Christ-that's Relationship.
