It was founded to spread the message of Christlike living across the land. Today, the Church of the Nazarene is located in 151 world areas. The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe that God offers everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
