Who We Are
The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian Church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christian living) across the lands. Today the Church of the Nazarene is located in 156 world areas.
The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission Church. Our mission is to make Christlike disciples in the nations. We believe that God offeres to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
The Church of the Nazarene is also a Holiness Church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
Throughout the website you will find links and resources that will help you to learn more about the Nazarene Church global and local. In our link to the District site, you will find a church locator that identifies other Nazarene Churches throughout the Maritimes.
Each Nazarene fellowship represents a faith community standing ready to greet and welcome you in Jesus’ name. There you will discover opportunities not only to encounter Jesus as your Saviour and Lord but also to grow as a follower or disciple. Local churches offer opportunities to worship, serve, fellowship and equipping for ministry.
