STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
Agreed Statement of Belief of the Church of the Nazarene
*We believe in one God-- the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
*We believe that both the Old and New Testament Scriptures are fully inspired by God and contain all truth necessary for salvation and right living.
*We believe that all people are born with a fallen nature from which they are unable to free themselves, compelling them to make self-serving, sinful choices.
*We believe those who die in their sin, unrepentant, are hopelessly and eternally lost.
*We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whoever confesses their sin and believes that God raised Jesus from the dead will be set free from their fallen nature and the control and punishment of sin.
*We believe that believers are called beyond initial salvation, to a place of total surrender to Jesus in word, thought, and action. This is called “entire sanctification.”
*We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to a believer’s initial salvation, as well as their entire sanctification.
*We believe that one day Jesus will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
