Who We Are
Every church has its distinctives -- beliefs or practices that set it apart from other groups.
You might be asking, "what is a Nazarene?"
What IS a Nazarene?
We are not Baptists, but like Baptists we
believe in calling people to repentance
and to witness to their new life in Christ
through public baptism.
We are not Presbyterians, but like them,
we believe in the power of preaching the
Word of God to bring about change in
We are not Lutherans, but like the Luther-
ans, we believe that God offers us salva-
tion through Jesus Christ by grace alone
through faith alone.
We are not Charismatics- No, we do not
speak in tongues--but like them, we be-
lieve in the gifts of the Spirit, who gives us
the power to live a Christ-like life.
We are not Episcopalians, but like the
Episcopalians, we take worship seriously
(We just choose to be a little less formal in
our worship style.)
We are not United Methodists, yet like our
theological cousins, we trace our heritage
back to John Wesley.
Who are the Nazarenes?
We are a warm and friendly group of people
who desire, with God’s help, to live holy lives
that bring honor and glory to Him. We laugh
and cry together, rejoice and grieve together
and above all, we aim to be family for all
who love Jesus, the Nazarene.
