Enid First Nazarene is a part of the global Church of the Nazarene, a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition.
Our Core Values
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 through sanctification the Holy Spirit seeks to cleanse us from all sin, renew us in the image of God, empower us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and produce 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. 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.
