Our Beliefs

First Church of the Nazarene embraces the doctrines and teachings of the International Church of the Nazarene, whose Articles of Faith are part of the Constitution of the church in our official organ, The Manual of the Church of the Nazarene. We embrace the historic Christian creeds, which come from the scriptures, and confess our faith to be:


I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth,

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic (universal) Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.
