To make more & better followers of Christ
We Are a Christian People
As members of the Church Universal, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic Trinitarian creedal statements of Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan–Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.
We Are a Holiness People
God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace, called by various terms including "entire sanctification" and "baptism with the Holy Spirit" — cleansing us from all sin; renewing us in the image of God: empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves; and producing in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.
We Are a Missional People
We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom (2 Corinthians 6:1). Our mission begins in worship, ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and prepares women and men for Christian service through Christian higher education.
The Columbia City Church of the Nazarene was organized in 1934. From a simple beginning which sprang from the spirit of revival, the small congregation first met in homes and store fronts. Our first Church structure was located at 325 N. Elm St. In 1970, the growing congregation relocated to the south west corner of the court house square and ministered from that location for 28 years. Out-growing that facility, the Church of the Nazarene purchased the former Church of God building at 506 N. Main St. God has continued blessing our ministries from this current site.
The Denomination had an international dimension from its beginning. Today it is, by intention, an international church with over 380 districts world-wide, three-quarters of which are outside North America. There are nearly 1.5 million Nazarenes.
What We Believe and Teach
• We believe that we are only one part of Christ's universal Church and share with believers in other communions one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.
• With other Protestants we affirm the priority of salvation by grace alone through faith in Christ, the priesthood of all believers, and the Bible as the final rule of Christian faith and practice.
• We believe that the Old and New Testaments reveal God's will for all persons concerning sin, salvation, and new life in Christ.
• We affirm that Christ's death atoned for the sins of all people, and that this grace is effective for the salvation of each person who accepts it.
• We believe that Christians are justified and sanctified by faith alone.
• We believe that Christ's sanctifying grace is received initially in the New Birth (regeneration) when the Holy Spirit plants a new principle of spiritual life within, and that sanctifying grace increases as we live life through the Spirit. We affirm that entire sanctification is a gracious provision and plan for all believers, in which the heart is cleansed of all sin and overflows with love for God and neighbor.
The Church of the Nazarene is a “Great Commission” church. As such our members seek to witness faithfully and attractively to all people, so that the Christ life within would draw others to the love, worship, and service of God. The basic vehicles through which we carry out our mission are these: corporate worship, evangelism, compassionate ministry, Christian nurture, and education. Because the whole people of God constitute "the Church," and because each Christian is called to ministry and every believer in the Church of the Nazarene has a role in carrying out the mission to which we are called as a corporate body.
