Recognizing our shared beliefs

Recognizing our shared beliefs

by | 28 Mar, 2019

The Church of the Nazarene is a diverse body of more than 2.5 million believers worshipping in 162 world areas.

Despite our differences in geography, language, culture, age, worship styles, and more, there are many things on which we agree. 

Paragraph 20 of our Manual highlights the agreed statement of belief.

20: We believe:
In one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

Human beings are born with a fallen nature, and are, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

The finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

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.

That believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

Our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
