The Church of the Nazarene has three core values:
We are a CHRISTIAN people
We believe that salvation is only found through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the way, and the truth, and the life. God, in His love and mercy, calls everyone to accept the gift of salvation.
(John 14:6, John 3:16)
We are a HOLINESS people
We are saved by the grace of Jesus and then called to leave sin behind. God desires for us to be a HOLY people, a people who are in the world but different from the world.
(Colossians 3:1-17, Romans 12:1-2)
We are a MISSIONAL people
Jesus Christ has issued us marching orders. Church is not just about saved people spending time with saved people. We are called as believers and as a church to join Jesus in His efforts to reach the lost. We are called to tell others about the marvelous gift of Salvation. Missional living does not just include telling others, but also serving others in Jesus Name.
(Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 25:31-45)
