Our Beliefs

The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. The denomination traces its roots a little south of here in Pilot Point, Texas with the anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christ-like living). Today the Church of the Nazarene reaches around the globe.

We Believe…

  1. In one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. The Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
  3. Human beings are born with a fallen nature, and are therefore, inclined to evil continually.
  4. The finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
  5. 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.
  6. That believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. The Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
  8. Our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
  9. We hold two sacraments to be holy: Communion and Baptism
