What is a Nazarene? Southside Nazarene Church is a part of The Church of the Nazarene which is a world-wide Protestant denomination that believes in: the Bible as the Word of God, proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ as the mission of the Church and being filled with the Holy Spirit as the power for victorious living. We hold to all the traditional evangelical Bible beliefs in the tradition of John Wesley and the Methodist revivals of the 1800s.

We are named after “Jesus the Nazarene��� (Matthew 2:23). Nazareth was Jesus’ hometown and was considered “on the other side of the tracks.” (John 1:46) The apostle Paul was later called ���the ringleader of the Nazarene sect.” (Acts 24:5)

What is unique about the Nazarene Church? We emphasize the need for a fully devoted dedication to God. We believe that Jesus should not only be our Savior but that God should be the leader and controller of our fully surrendered life….in other words our love for God should be genuine, sincere, and visible to others. This takes the power of the Holy Spirit to completely fill our lives and break the power of sin in our hearts.
