The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christ-like living) to all the world. 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 to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
The Church of the Nazarene is also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

We are an independent congregation that has the ability to develop ministries and connect with the culture found in the Village West area. In other words, even though we have made a commitment to be a part of the Church of the Nazarene we have the responsibility to be real and genuine and be followers of Christ.
God’s Word is our guide, and our instruction book and road map for our lives and our church.
