What We Believe

Our congregation is a part of the International Church of the Nazarene, a holiness denomination in the Welseyan-Arminian tradition.  The Agreed Statement of Belief for Nazarenes around the world is:

We Believe:

- In one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

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

- That man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

- That the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

- That 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.

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

- That our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
