What We Believe

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Trinity Church of the Nazarene based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


We believe in one God, Triune in essential being, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God - one eternally existent, infinite creator and sustainer of the universe; that He is Holy in nature attributes, and purpose.
Jesus Christ - The second person of the Triune Godhead, eternally one with the Father. We believe Jesus Christ died for ours sins , and that He truly rose from the dead and took again His body.
Holy Spirit -The third person of the Triune Godhead who is ever present and efficiently active in and with the Church of Christ, convincing the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus.


We believe in the plenary inspiration of the Bible, Old and New Testament, which inerrantly reveals God's will and everything we need for a life of faith and following Jesus.

Sin- Original and Personal

We believe that sin separates us from God, and that sin is both depravity (original sin) and actual sin (knowingly disobeying God)

Repentance and Atonement

We believe you must repent of your sin to be saved, and that atonement comes only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Prevenient Grace

We believe that each person has been granted the freedom by God to choose between right and wrong. We must choose to receive God's grace and then choose to live out His grace. A person can forfeit their salvation, even though they have been a Christian, if they choose to continue in Sin.


We believe that the person who believes in Jesus Christ is forgiven of all sin, made a new creation in Christ, and is adopted into God's family.

Entire Sanctification (Holy Living)

We believe that Christians are called to a life of surrender to God. Believers may be "entirely sanctified" by the holy spirit and freed from the tyranny of sin. There is a marked distinction between a pure heart and a mature character, and every believer is called to grow in grace.

The  Church 

We believe in the church, the covenant community of faith, called together by the Holy Spirit.


We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are sacraments commanded by Jesus, whereby the grace of God is ministered to His church.

Lord's Supper-Communion

We believe that the communion supper instituted by Jesus Christ is a sacrament, proclaiming His life, suffereings, sacrificial death, resurrection and the hope of His coming again.The Lord's supper is a means of grace  which Christ is present by the Spirit.  Those who have faith in Christ and love for the saints are invited by Christ to participate as often as possible.

Divine Healing 

We believe that God can and does heal the sick, and God also heals through the means of medical science.

Second Coming  and  Final Resurrection

We believe that Jesus Christ will return.  We believe in the bodily resurrection of every person, the final judgment, in which every person will appear before God and that all believers will enjoy eternal life and those who choose not to repent will receive eternal judgment.
