The Church of the Nazarene
The Church of the Nazarene, as a denomination, was officially organized at Pilot Point, Texas, in October, 1908. At that time, there were only a few small churches scattered over the East, the South and Southwest. Twenty-five years later, when the church celebrated her Silver Anniversary in October, 1933, churches had been established in every state in the Union, in many cities throughout the Dominion of Canada, in Mexico, and in twelve foreign countries. A Headquarters building in Kansas City. Missouri. containing offices for four General Superintendents, for all General Secretaries, Editors of the various publications, and full equipment for the publication of all the literature for the church, had been established at a cost of almost a half million dollars, and is absolutely free of debt.
The church passed the 100,000 mark in membership during the first quarter century of her existence, and gained more than 200,000 members to the Sunday Bible School department. At present, (April, 1934), there are 116,000 church members, 220,000 members of the Sunday Bible School, 52,000 members of the Young Peoples Society, 27,000 members of the Women's Missionary Society. There are thirty-five hundred Nazarene ministers preaching in this country, and several hundred foreign and native ministers preaching in other lands. From the beginning, the Church of the Nazarene has strongly advocated aggressive evangelism and Christian Education. Eight colleges in the United States and Canada are constantly training young men and women for the Nazarene ministry and Mission fields.
The Nazarene Church believes:
IN ONE GOD-Father, Son and Holy Ghost. In the deity of Jesus Christ and the personality of the Holy Spirit.
In the Divine inspiration of the Holy Bible.
REPENTANCE, which is a sincere change of mind in regard to sin, involving a sense of personal guilt and turning away from sin, is demanded of all. ("All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.")
THE NEW BIRTH is that gracious work of God, whereby the moral nature of the repentant believer is given spiritual life, capable of faith, love and obedience.
SANCTIFICATION is that act of God, subsequent to regeneration. by which believers are made free from original sin, through the baptism with the Holy Spirit, and brought into a state of entire devotement to God.
DIVINE HEALING is clearly taught in the Bible, and, while Providential means and agencies, when necessary, should not be refused, the prayer of faith should be offered for the sick.
WATER BAPTISM signifies acceptance of the benefits of the atonement of Christ. and may be administered according to the choice of the applicant.
IN THE SECOND COMING OF OUR LORD. in the Resurrection of the dead, and in eternal destiny. with its rewards for the righteous and punishment for the impenitent and wicked.
