BOARD OF GENERAL SUPERINTENDENTS PUBLISHES "NAZARENE ESSENTIALS." A TREMENDOUS RESOURCE!
The Board of General Superintendents recently released Nazarene Essentials, a new document explaining the basics of the Church of the Nazarene's teaching, history, theology, mission and funding, and connections.
"Nazarene Essentials is a resource available to all churches to help deepen our people's understanding of who we are and what we believe," said David Graves, Board of General Superintendents chair. "It is one of the most exciting resources that has been developed for the global church." The document, written in plain language, was created at the request of a new generation of spiritual leaders and an increasing body of believers. Nazarene Essentials explains why the Church of the Nazarene exists as a worldwide Holiness and Great Commission movement in the Wesleyan-Arminian tradition. For clergy and laity, Nazarene Essentials offers a way to better understand the church's purpose of spreading scriptural holiness and its mission to make Christlike disciples in the nations. Nazarene Essentials is available online at nazarene.org/essentials . Online resources include the full document, the 12 individual chapters, a leader's guide, and artwork. The full document is also posted in Spanish and will soon be available in additional languages.
The document was originally released as the March/April 2015 edition of Holiness Today. To order copies of the magazine, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
