MISSION STATEMENT

 

We are a holy people, growing in Christ, reaching others with God's unconditional love, teaching the hope of salvation, and building authentic relationships with God and each other. 

VISION STATEMENT
We are a church that is full of vibrant, spirit-filled people from diverse backgrounds meeting together in worship, building authentic relationships, and reaching out to those who need the hope of Jesus Christ.   

Family Focused
We believe a strong home provides the best context for people to learn and live their faith.  We partner with families to help them know and participate in God's Story.  We come together to provide support, encouragement, and resources for today's family.

Holiness 

God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness.  We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a work of grace, called by various terms including "entire sanctification" and "baptism with the Holy Spirit" - cleansing us from all sin, renewing us in the image of God, empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and producing in us the character of Christ.  Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christ likeness.

Missional
We are a 'sent' people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom.  Missional living is the embodiment of the mission of Jesus in the world by incarnating the gospel.  "It is the imperative that Christians be like Jesus by living freely within the culture as missionaries who are as faithful to the Father and His gospel as Jesus was in His own time and place."

 

 
Agreed Statement of Belief
These are the beliefs Nazarenes 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 impenitent 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.
