What we believe
While we get our name from Jesus of Nazareth, you might be asking, "What in the world is a modern-day Nazarene?"
We are not Lutherans, but like Lutherans we believe in salvation the through Jesus Christ alone, on the authority of Scripture alone, in salvation by faith alone, and in salvation as a gift of God's grace alone.
We are not Presbyterians, but like the Presbyterians we believe in the power of the preaching of the Word of God to bring
about change in people's lives.
We are not Baptists, but like the Baptists, we believe in calling people to repentance and to witnessing to their new life in Christ
through public baptism.
We are not Charismatics. but like the Charismatics, we believe in the gifts of the Spirit, who gives people the power to live a Christ-like life and to make a true difference in their world.
We are not Episcopalians, although John Wesley, was a life-long Anglican, but like the Episcopalians, we take worship seriously.
We just choose to be a little less formal in our worship services.
We are not Quakers or Moravians, but like these groups, we believe in living a careful life that testifies to the watching world
that we belong to the Family of God.
And, we are not United Methodists, although we have our roots in the Methodist traditions that grew out of John Wesley's revival
movement in the 1700's. We have a good fellowship with out United Methodist "cousins", but we are organizationally separate.
