Our Vision and Core Values

Vision Statement

Mission Statement 

  The Mission of the Pennsville Church of the Nazarene is to love God and to love others.

Core Values

Prayer - We believe prayer is essential to Christian life.  It is through prayer that we remain connected to God through the Holy Spirit.  It is in prayer that we seek God's direction, grace, comfort, and power for living lives of Christlike love in the world.

Worship - We believe worship is more than something we do on Sunday morning, but a lifestyle of continual praise evidenced in our lives and fueled by our regular corporate gatherings or prayer, praise, singing, scripture, communion, and preaching.

Discipleship - We believe all Christians must engage in a continual relationship of growth in Christ.  It is through engagement with the Church that we are supported and held accountable.  We pursue holiness together through conversation, bible study, teaching, listening, learning and spiritual formation.

Witness - We believe that our call as God's people is to share the good news of God's love shown in the incarnation, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ with the world around us, inviting people to participate in the life for which they were created.  While words are a necessary part of communication, we believe in the testimony of a holy life.

Service - Following the example of Christ, we believe in serving others - thinking of others before we think of ourselves.  We exhibit God's grace as we serve others unconditionally; service is an essential part of the Christian life.
