Building on the success of Nazarene Essentials, a new resource is debuting at General Assembly.

The Church of the Nazarene worked diligently over the past quadrennium to develop curriculum to engage Nazarenes globally in conversations about who we are and what we believe. The first document, titled Nazarene Essentials: Who we are—What we believe, debuted in 2015 and is now available in 34 languages. The second document, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism: Essential Teachings for Faith Formation in the Church of the Nazarene, arrived at General Assembly this week. Copies are available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Additional translations are in process.

One Lord takes the conversation to a deeper level as it explores what Nazarenes believe.

“I believe this resource will provide a wealth of information for meaningful discussions with our entire global Nazarene family,” said Frank Moore, general editor for the denomination. “I pray the Lord will use this tool to help us educate believers in intentional discipleship.”

As stated in One Lord: “God brought this denomination into existence to preach, teach, and model holiness of heart and life as the missional core of its vocation to make Christlike disciples in the nations. Our present and our future as a denomination depend on our faithful participation in the mission of God and our embrace of the distinctive call God has given us.”

The ancient creeds and confessions, along with Christian traditions over the past 2,000 years, offer patterns of faith formation that have the power to speak to new generations in the unusual and challenging contexts of the 21st century. The Church of the Nazarene invites you to join in the conversation as we advance our denomination’s core values: Christian, holiness, missional.

Visit the Holiness Today booth in the Exhibit Hall for free English copies of this new resource and the Global Nazarene Publications booth for free copies in Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Delegates are encouraged to take several copies home with them to distribute in their local churches. One Lord can be accessed online by going to nazarene.org/onelord. Essentials is available at nazarene.org/essentials.
