Christlike Character in Christian Higher Education

The first institutional outcome is Christlike Character. It is defined as, “NNU students will grow toward Christlikeness: demonstrating ethical behavior, loving and respecting others, offering grace as they have received it, building up the community of Christ, and representing Christ to the world.”

Liberal Arts and the Priorities of Nazarene Higher Education

J. Matthew Price

The Church of the Nazarene early in its history endeared itself to liberal arts education as a denominational priority. This study provides a beginning to understanding this priority through H. Orton Wiley’s influence in nurturing liberal arts education in Nazarene colleges during the first half of the 20th century. Some of the ideals promoted by Wiley should not be lost at the beginning of the 21st century.

John Wesley's Sermons

John Wesley
Thanks to: Christian Classics Ethereal Library

Sermons on Several Occasions is a collection of 141 sermons compiled into five series. In his first series, John Wesley presents what the Bible says concerning the way to heaven. In his second series, Wesley sheds light on several important Christian doctrines and practices. The first two series were edited and organized for publication by John Wesley himself. And while one can assume that Wesley is responsible for all of the sermons in this book, it is important to note the circumstances under which the final three series were published.

Church Member's Handbook (Revised Edition): An easy-to-ready guide to the Manual of the Church of the Nazarene

Neville Bartle
Scott Stargel

An easy-to-read guide to the Manual of the church of the Nazarene

The Church has an official book called The Manual of the Church of the Nazarene, but we usually just call it “the Manual.” It is a legal document, and many people find it difficult to read and understand, even some who speak English as their first language. This small book is an easy-to-read summary of the main points of the Manual, focusing on the parts that relate to the local church and district activities. It will show you what we Nazarenes believe, how we govern ourselves, and what our purpose is.
