What does WayNaz Believe?

Eight Agreed Statements

These are the beliefs Nazarenes hold to be true. They are common to Christians world-wide.

1. We believe in one God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

2. We believe that the Bible communicates God's saving message and is our reliable authority in all matters related to faith and Christian living.

3. We believe that all humankind struggles with a downward pull.

4. We believe that unless we experience God's help and salvation through a faith commitment to Jesus Christ, our future is one of eternal separation from God and all that is good.

5. We believe the love and grace of God is extended to every person in the provision Jesus Chrsit made in his death and resurection. By turning from our own selfishness and trusting Jesus Christ, we experience a new life, being freed from the old patterns of self-destructive acts called sin.

6. We believe that believers experience the ministry of the Holy Spirit, enabling them to live godly lives and to continue in spiritual growth.

7. We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and to the sanctifying work of God in our lives.

8. We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
