Our Beliefs -- The Worldwide Church of the Nazarene
The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. The church was founded to spread the message of Christ-like living throughout the globe. Today the Church of the Nazarene is located in 155 world areas. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of life forever by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message of hope 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.
These are the beliefs Nazarenes around the world hold to be true: We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
* We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living
* We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually
* We believe that the finally un-repentant are hopelessly and eternally lost
* We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin
* We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
* We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers
* We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place
