Agreed Statement of Belief
These are the beliefs that Nazarenes hold to be true:
We believe in one God—the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
The Roman Road + ABC's of Salvation
This is the plan of Salvation:
A - Agree with God that you are a sinner
Romans 3:23 (NIV) For all sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
B - Believe Jesus died for your sin
Romans 6:23 (NIV) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
C - Come clean with God; Confess your sin
Romans 10:9 (NIV) That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you shall be saved.
D - Declare your faith in Christ by what you say and do
Romans 6:1-2 (NIV) What shall we say? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin;
how can we live in it any longer?
