WHO WE ARE
We're a community of people, a family, passionate about Jesus because we believe the Gospel changes everything. So we are first worshippers because Jesus gave it all for us so that we could be transformed from who we used to be. From that worship, we're on a mission to see the lost and hurting of Sheridan experience the same love, acceptance, and freedom that we've found in Him. We may be different ages and stages of life with different stories and backgrounds, but we're in this journey together: ELEVATING Jesus in our 24/7 lives, ENLARGING our faith through community, and ENGAGING Sheridan and the world through service and missions.
What's a Nazarene?
Our denomination, founded in 1908, is the largest in the Wesleyan tradition with 2.4 million members worldwide. Nazarenes are largely focused on missions and reaching all people with the love of Jesus. Our church partners with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries that covers everything from supplying clean drinking water, to building hospitals and schools, and rescuing human trafficking victims.
Where we're headed
When Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life," we believe he gave us the roadmap for our life journey. Our goal is to bring as many people as possible with us on this sometimes difficult, but always beautiful adventure of following Jesus. We'll do anything short of sin to bring the power of Jesus to those who are lonely, hurting, empty, or breaking.
With that mission, it has been our commission and our vision from our first day here in Sheridan, to BUILD HIS CHURCH. We believe this isn't just a metaphorical "building" but a new physical one. We have received blueprints from Jesus that we believe will become a new House of Worship to make ready Jesus' bride for His return. In the coming days we believe we will see a wave of revival hit Sheridan and we want to be ready for all that God is planning and doing!
