The Church of the Nazarene is a Christian church that has been operating in New Zealand since 1953. It is a multicultural church that welcomes people of every race language and cultural background. It is part of a global family of churches operating in over 150 countries around the world. The word Nazarene relates to Jesus of Nazareth.
Every organisation that endures over time is based on a deeply shared combination of purpose, belief and values. So it is with the Church of the Nazarene. It was founded to transform the world by spreading scriptural holiness (Christ-like living). It is both a Great Commission church and a Holiness church at the same time. Our mission is to make Christlike disciples of all nations.
