What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our Mission

The mission of Leavenworth Church of the Nazarene:
Knowing Jesus, Following Jesus, and Serving Jesus

We Believe:

In one God–the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

The Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary [complete] inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

Human beings are born with a fallen nature, and are, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

The finally impenitent [unrepentant] are hopelessly and eternally lost.

The atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified [cleansed] and regenerated [given new life] and saved from the dominion of sin.

That believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

Our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgement will take place.

Who Are The Nazarenes?

Leavenworth Church of the Nazarene is a part of the Nazarene denomination. The Nazarene denomination is a holiness denomination with Methodist roots that has existed for over 100 years. To find out more about Nazarenes visit the official Nazarene website.

Why Be Part Of A Denomination?

A denomination provides two major benefits. First, it provides accountability in several places such as finances, leadership, morality, theology, etc. Second, it enhances a local church's ability, whether big or small, to accomplish larger goals. LCN is able to support more ministries through the Nazarene denomination (i.e. church planting, missionaries, disaster relief, education, etc.) by pooling our resources and collaborating with other Nazarene churches. LCN is also able to provide quality ministry events for specific age groups. For example, our youth camps minister to hundreds of kids with incredible programming and staff due to its size.

While LCN values its relationship with other Nazarene churches, it places a high value on unity in the body of Christ. We enjoy worshiping and serving cooperatively with other local churches in our community.
