We believe in one God who has expressed himself in personal ways. We know God’s personality as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible communicates God’s saving message and is our reliable authority in all matters related to faith and Christian living.
We believe that all humankind struggles with self-centeredness.
We believe the love and grace of God is offered to every person. By turning from our own selfishness and trusting Jesus Christ, we experience a new life, being freed from the old patterns of self-destructive acts called sin.
We believe our new life in Jesus Christ is the gateway to transformation.
We believe that Christian experience is more than a change of mind. It is a changed life; living out your faith.
We are part of the Church of the Nazarene, a family of 12,000 churches gathering in over 160 countries.
With roots that reach back to the Anglican and Methodist traditions, the very first Church of the Nazarene was started in Los Angeles in 1895 as a mission to the poor.
The name “Nazarene” refers to Jesus who grew up in the humble city of Nazareth. Remembering that Jesus was a Nazarene reminds us that God identifies with the poor and cares deeply about the everyday needs of the common person.
