Kathy from Florida, I grew up in the Nazarene Church. They believe in salvation by faith and hold altar calls. They used to insist on a second work of grace called sanctification where the old nature, allegedly is to be dealt with by God. There emphasis is on personal holiness of life, which, at least for me, seems like a good emphasis these days. While Catholics believe that a moral sin will send you to Hell if not confessed, so too, Nazarenes believe that you can fall from grace. This church is totally Christian and emphasize being born again. After all there is no other kind of Christian. They would not allow me to become a pastor in the Nazarene Church because I would not go along with the 'second work of grace' concept. In the former years they believed that when you are fully sanctified that the the Lord removes the Adamic nature through cleansing in His blood. Back in 1966 I had come to believe in eternal security, so this really sealed my chances of getting into the Nazarene Church. They do believe in the truth of the Rapture, the Great Tribulation and the Kingdom Age of 1,000 years on the earth. Several of my family members are Nazarene preachers, my cousin Rev. Harold Berrian being the new District Superintendent in the Kentucky Conference. Two of my uncles, now with the Lord, were pastors in the northeastern part of our United States. They are not a cult and have several colleges across the USA along with the Nazarene Seminary in Kansas City. You can trust them with your children as to basic Christian theology. They taught me many things that I would have never heard about in some other Christian Churches. Rev. Dr. Ray Berrian, Th.D.
