Church of the Nazarene
In the heart of Stilwell, our first service was held on September 2, 2012, in the original United Methodist Church building on the corner of Main and Park Street.
On July 6, 2017, we purchased the a larger building across the street, which was the original Baptists Church built in Stilwell.
When the church buildings were built, they were placed in the center of the community. They represented a place that brought people together. Today we continue that tradition by bringing people together to worship as a family.
The Stilwell Church of the Nazarene has something special to offer: intimacy. Our goal is to allow more opportunity to let real relationships run deep, with God and our neighbors. We offer a genuine sense of belonging to a community of individuals who share the love of God with others.
Time of Services:
Sunday School – 9:30 AM
Worship – 10:45 AM
Holding onto the traditional elements of our Holiness beliefs, we sing hymns, do responsive readings, pray at the altar, teach from the Bible, and close with a benediction.
Articles of Faith
We believe in one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
Sanctification comes from the verb sanctify. Sanctify means to be “separate” or to be “set apart.” In the Bible, sanctification generally relates to a sovereign act of God whereby He “sets apart” a person, place, or thing in order that His purposes may be accomplished.In the book of Exodus, God sanctifies a place of worship. “And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by My glory,”
2 Timothy 2:21 ESV
Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.John 17:17 ESV
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
The classical Wesleyan-Holiness tradition’s largest denomination is the Church of the Nazarene. The Church’s unique doctrine sets it apart from other Christian denominations by emphasizing on entire sanctification.
Nazarenes firmly believe that God calls Christians to lead a holy life. To achieve this, they must undergo a transformative experience that cleanses their hearts from original sin and fills them with love for God and humanity.
