Expressing a Nazarene Identity: Frameworks for Lay Leadership

Floyd T. Cunningham

This book focuses on how the Church of the Nazarene has perceived its mission and purpose in the world from beginning days to the present. The book describes the particular reason-to-be of the church and its distinctive character, particularly in relation to its organisational structure, educational philosophy, and missions. It explains some of the ways in which the church has developed its theology from John Wesley, Methodism, and the holiness movement to the twentieth and twenty-first century, and how the church has expanded its ministry of compassion to the world.

Supplemental texts

Nazarene Essentials: Who We Are—What We Believe

Nazarene Essentials

A new generation of spiritual leaders and an increasing body of believers have requested that basics of the church’s teaching, history, theology, mission, funding, and connections be placed in a brief and easily accessible publication—in plain language.

Nazarene Essentials explains why the Church of the Nazarene exists as a worldwide Holiness and Great Commission movement in the Wesleyan-Arminian tradition.
