The Cape Elizabeth Church of the Nazarene is part of the Church of the Nazarene, a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Rooted in the historic Christian faith, we affirm the Trinitarian Creeds as confessed by Christians around the globe. Founded in 1908, today the Church of the Nazarene is a global movement, with churches and ministries located in 159 world areas.
The mission of the Church of the Nazarene is to make Christlike disciples in the nations. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of life everlasting. We believe that every person is invited to enter and experience a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
Grounded in the Wesleyan tradition, the Church of the Nazarene is also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
