WHAT DOES PAZNAZ BELIEVE?

Eight Agreed Statements

These are the beliefs Nazarenes hold to be true. They are common to Christians world-wide.

  • 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 in the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
  • We believe that believers experience the ministry of the Holy Spirit, enabling them to live godly lives and to continue in spiritual growth.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and to the sanctifying work of God in our lives.
  • We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
