The Nazarene Denomination
HFCN is a local affiliation of the Church of the Nazarene (COTN). The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church organized in 1908 in context of the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Organized in 1908, founders of the COTN sought to bring existing believers together for a unified pursuit of sanctified living, compassionate evangelism, and discipleship of new and old believers across cultures, languages, and regions. The COTN is now home to more than 2 million members in over 26,000 congregations and 162 world areas.
The COTN is a Great Commission church. Our mission is to make Christlike disciples in the nations. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and eternal life by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
The Church of the Nazarene is also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over the bondage of sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
