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 164 world areas.
The Church of the Nazarene exists to serve as an instrument for advancing the Kingdom of God through the preaching and teaching of the Gospel. We believe that God offers to everyone forgivness, peace, joy, love and purpose by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to all peoples in all places.
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.
