Proclaiming the Life-Changing Message of Jesus Christ
We are a community of Christ-followers who describe ourselves as “One Big Family.”
The Bible is God’s Holy Word, and Jesus is Lord. He offers us forgiveness of sins through His death and resurrection. God loves us, desires relationship with us, and wants to transform our lives. (Scroll down to see our official statement of belief.)
The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Our mission is “to make Christ-like disciples in the nations.” Nazarenes are known for compassionate ministries locally and globally. For more information, click HERE.
The Church of the Nazarene is more than 100 years old. Locally, Kokomo First Nazarene started in 1921, with a small group of believers, in a commercial building. Today, our congregation has grown to more than a thousand.
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 on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
WE BELIEVE that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

WE BELIEVE that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
