What we Believe
WELCOME TO THE CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE
The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christlike living) across the lands. Today the Church of the Nazarene is located in 156 world areas.
The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. Our mission is to make Christlike disciples in the nations. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
The Church of the Nazarene is also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
At ORCN we believe...
There is one God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1; John 1
The Bible is inspired by God and contains all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
Jesus atoned for all our sins by dying on the cross and assures forgiveness to those who ask.
It is God's will that we develop a deeper relationship with him and let our love for him be evident in our daily lives.
Jesus will return for those who have chosen him to live in heaven forever.
Love God, Love People, Make Disciples
TO LOVE HIM...with all our hearts, soul, and minds and to worship Him sincerely.
TO WALK WITH HIM...in alignment with biblical truth as we are empowered by His spirit.
TO LIFT HIM UP...as our crucified and risen Lord to all within our community and around the world, regardless of status or race, so that they might experience new life in Him.
