We believe in one God, who reveals himself as Father, Son and Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who became like us to bring about our salvation.
We believe that the Bible is the word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to be saved.
We believe that we are all sinners by both nature and act and need God’s forgiveness and cleansing.
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for everyone, and by placing our trust in Him, we can be restored to a right relation to God.
We believe that after placing our trust in Christ, the Holy Spirit dwells within us and leads and enables us to live a life pleasing to God.
We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again, and everyone will face the judgment of God with its rewards and punishments.
Real Life Chapel is a Nazarene Congregation.
So – what is a Nazarene?
We are not Baptists, but like them we believe in calling people to repentance and to witnessing to their new life in Christ through public baptism.
We are not Presbyterians, but like them we believe in the power of the preaching of the Word of God to bring about change in people’s lives.
We are not Lutherans, but like them we believe in salvation through Jesus Christ on the authority of Scripture alone, in salvation by faith alone and in salvation as a gift of God’s grace alone.
We are not Charismatics – No, we do not “speak in tongues” in our services – but like the Charismatics we believe in the gifts of the Spirit, who gives people the power to live a Christ-like life and to make a real difference in their world.
We are not Episcopalians, but like them we take worship seriously (we just choose to be less “formal” in our worship services).
We are not Quakers or Moravians, but like these pietistic groups we believe in living a careful life that testifies to the watching world that we belong to the family of God.
And we are not United Methodists, although we have our roots in the Methodist tradition that grew out of John Wesley’s revival movement in the 1700’s. We have good fellowship with our United Methodist “cousins”, but we are organizationally seperate for historical reasons.
We are a people who laugh and cry together, rejoice and grieve together, grow together and walk in faith together. We aim to be a family for all who love Jesus, the Nazarene.
