Nazarene Beliefs

  • THE TRIUNE GOD
  • We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who reveals Himself as Father, Son, and Spirit.

  • JESUS CHRIST
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who became like us to bring about our salvation.

  • THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world, bringing us to Salvation.

  • THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to be saved.

  • SIN, ORIGINAL AND PERSONAL
  • We believe that we are all sinners by both nature and act and need God’s forgiveness and cleansing.

  • ATONEMENT
  • We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross and that, by trusting in His death, we can be restored to a right relation to God.

  • PREVENIENT GRACE (Free Agency)
  • We believe that God has enabled us to turn to Him from sin but that He has not forced us to do so.

  • REPENTANCE
  • We believe that each person must repent, turn away from sin, and trust Christ to accept him or her.

  • JUSTIFICATION, REGENERATION, AND ADOPTION
  • We believe that when we turn from sin and trust in Christ, the old record of sin is wiped clean, and we are born anew, thus becoming part of the family of God.

  • ENTIRE SANCTIFICATION
  • We believe that after being born again (saved), we need the fullness of God’s Spirit in our hearts. When we make a complete commitment to Him, He cleanses our spirit, fills us with His perfect love, and gives us the power to live victoriously.

  • THE CHURCH
  • We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, carrying on His mission through the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • BAPTISM
  • We believe in the practice and sacrament of baptism and urge people to be baptized as Christians.

  • COMMUNION (THE LORD’S SUPPER)
  • We believe in the sacrament of Holy Communion (The Lord’s Supper).

  • DIVINE HEALING
  • We believe that God can heal. We pray for healing. We also believe that He can work through medical science.

  • SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again.

  • RESURRECTION, JUDGEMENT AND DESTINY
  • We believe that everyone will face the judgment of God with its rewards and

    punishment.
