Articles of Faith | Church of the Nazarene


We believe in one eternally existent, infinite God, Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the universe; that He only is God, holy in nature, attributes, and purpose.

Genesis 1; Leviticus ; Deuteronomy ; Isaiah ; ; ; Matthew 2nd article of faith ; John ; 1 Corinthians ; 2 Corinthians ; Galatians ; Ephesians ; 1 John ; We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead; that He was eternally one with the Father; that He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary, so that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say the Godhead and manhood, are thus united in one Person very God and very man, the God-man, 2nd article of faith.

Matthew ; ; Luke ; John ; Acts ; Romans; Galatians ; Philippians ; Colossians ; 1 Timothy ; Hebrews ; ; ; 1 John ; We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead, that He is ever present and efficiently active in and with the Church of Christ, convincing the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus, 2nd article of faith.

John ;26; ; Acts ; ; Romans ; Galatians ; ; Ephesians ; 1 Thessalonians ; 2 Thessalonians ; 1 Peter ; 1 John ; Luke ; John ; 1 Corinthians ; 2 Timothy ; 1 Peter ; 2 Peter We believe that sin came into the world through the disobedience of our first parents, and death by sin.

We believe that sin is of two kinds: original sin or depravity, and actual or personal sin. We believe that original sin, or depravity, is that corruption of the nature of all the offspring of Adam by reason of which everyone is very far gone from original righteousness or the pure state of our first parents at the time of their creation, is averse to God, is without spiritual life, and inclined to evil, and that continually.

We further believe that original sin continues to exist with the new life of the regenerate, until the heart is fully cleansed by the baptism with the Holy Spirit.

We believe that original sin differs from actual sin in that it constitutes an inherited propensity to actual sin for which no one is accountable until its divinely provided remedy is neglected or rejected, 2nd article of faith.

We believe that actual or personal sin is a voluntary violation of a known law of God by a morally responsible person. It is therefore not to be confused with involuntary and inescapable shortcomings, infirmities, faults, mistakes, failures, or other deviations from a standard of perfect conduct that are the residual effects of the Fall.

However, such innocent effects do not include attitudes or responses contrary to the spirit of Christ, which may properly be called sins of the spirit. We 2nd article of faith that personal sin is primarily and essentially a violation of the law of love; and that in relation to Christ sin may be defined as unbelief.

Original sin: Genesis 3; ; Job ; Psalm ; Jeremiah ; Mark; Romans ; ; ; 1 Corinthians ; Galatians ; 1 John The Atonement is graciously efficacious for the salvation of those incapable of moral responsibility and for the children in innocency but is efficacious for the salvation of those who reach the age of responsibility only when they repent and believe. Isaiah11; Mark ; Luke ; John ; ; Acts ; Romans ; ; ; 1 Corinthians ; 2 Corinthians ; Galatians ; ; Colossians ; 1 Timothy ; Titus ; Hebrews ; ; ; 1 Peter 21; ; 1 John Godlikeness and moral responsibility: Genesis ; ; Deuteronomy ; ; Joshua ; Psalm ; Isaiah ; Jeremiah ; Ezekiel ; Micah ; Romans ; ; ; Galatians Natural inability: Job ; ; Psalms ; ; John a; Romans ;20a; Free grace and works of faith: Ezekiel ; John ; b; Acts ; Romans18;23; ; ; 1 Corinthians ;; 2 Corinthians ; Galatians ; Ephesians ; Philippians ; Colossians ; 2 Timothy a; Titus ; Hebrews ; ; ; ; James ; 2 Peter ; We believe [that repentance, which is a sincere and thorough change of the mind in regard to sin, involving a sense of personal guilt and a voluntary turning away from sin, is demanded of all who have by act or purpose become sinners against God.

Repentance, which is a sincere and thorough change of the mind in regard to sin, involving a sense of personal guilt and a voluntary turning away from sin, is demanded of all who have by act or purpose become sinners against God.

We believe that all persons may fall from grace and apostatize and, 2nd article of faith, unless they repent of their sins, be hopelessly and eternally lost.

We believe that regenerate persons need not return to sin but may live in unbroken fellowship with God through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit who bears witness with our spirits that we are children of God. We believe that justification is the gracious and judicial act of God by which He grants full pardon of all guilt and complete release from the penalty of sins committed, and acceptance as righteous, to all who believe on Jesus Christ and receive Him as Lord and Savior.

We believe that regeneration, or the new birth, is that gracious work of God whereby the moral nature of the repentant believer is spiritually quickened and given a distinctively spiritual life, capable of faith, love, and obedience. We believe that adoption is that gracious act of God by which the justified and regenerated believer is constituted a [son] child of God.

Luke ; John ; ; ; Acts ; Romans ;28;;; ; ;2nd article of faith, ; 1 Corinthians ; ; 2 Corinthians ; Galatians ;26; ; Ephesians ;; Philippians ; Colossians ; Titus ; 1 Peter ; 1 John ;9; ; 2nd article of faith, We believe that sanctification is the work of God which transforms believers into the likeness of Christ.

In glorification, we are fully conformed to the image of the Son. We believe 2nd article of faith entire sanctification is that act of God, subsequent to regeneration, by which believers are made free from original sin, 2nd article of faith depravity, and brought into a state of entire devotement to God, and the holy obedience of love made perfect. It is wrought by the baptism with or infilling of the Holy Spirit, and comprehends in one experience the 2nd article of faith of the heart from sin and the abiding, indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, empowering the believer for life and service.

Entire sanctification is provided by the blood of Jesus, is wrought instantaneously by grace through faith, preceded by entire consecration; and to this work and state of grace 2nd article of faith Holy Spirit bears witness. We believe that there is a marked distinction between a pure heart and a mature character. The former is obtained in an instant, the result of entire sanctification; the latter is the result of growth in grace, 2nd article of faith.

We believe that the grace of entire sanctification includes the divine impulse to grow in grace as a Christlike disciple. However, this impulse must be consciously nurtured, and careful attention given to the requisites and processes of spiritual development and improvement in Christlikeness of character and personality.

Participating in the means of grace, 2nd article of faith, especially the fellowship, disciplines, and sacraments of the Church, believers grow in grace and in wholehearted love to God and neighbor, 2nd article of faith.

God calls the Church to express its life in the unity and fellowship of the Spirit; in worship through the preaching of the Word, observance of the sacraments, and ministry in His name; by obedience to Christ, holy living, and mutual accountability. The mission of the Church in the world is to share in the redemptive and reconciling ministry of Christ in the power of the Spirit. The Church fulfills its mission by making disciples through evangelism, education, showing compassion, 2nd article of faith, working for justice, and bearing witness to the kingdom of God.

The Church is a historical reality that organizes itself in culturally conditioned forms, exists both as local congregations and as a universal body, and also sets apart persons called of God for specific ministries.

God calls the Church 2nd article of faith live under His rule in anticipation of the consummation at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Those who have faith in Christ and love for the saints are invited by Christ to participate as often as possible. Exodus ; Matthew ; Mark ; Luke ; John ; 1 Corinthians ; We also believe God heals through the means of medical science.
