We are christian.

We are missional.

We are holiness.

The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Organized in 1908, the denomination is now home to about 2.3 million members worshiping in more than 29,000 local congregations in 159 world areas.

Since the earliest days of the Church of the Nazarene our denomination has had three core values that has been the guide through the years: We are Christian. We are missional. We are holiness.

We are tethered to the historic orthodox Christian faith expressed through the ancient Christian Creeds.

We believe that God’s mission is to invite all into the new world God is bringing through Jesus’ death and resurrection.

We see the Christian life as a response to live from and live by God’s holy love for the world that compels us to give ourselves fully to God for the transformation of our lives and the world.
