The Church of the Nazarene is an international Cgurch which began in Britain, Canada and the United States of America (USA). Eleven small denominations, all sharing the Wesleyan heritage, came together in a series of unions between 1896 and 1958. One of those unions in 1908 is taken as the official beginning of the Church. Of the eleven denominations, three were British. The first of these, a group in Scotland led by Rev. George Sharpe, joined in 1915. This was followed by two other groups in England, one led by Mr. David Thomas of london, the other led by Rev. Maynard G. James which headquarters in Lancashire, which united in 1952 and 1955. THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH: The Wesleyan Rivival that saved eighteenth century England from Revolution reaffirmed the testimaony and experience of the Early Church that God is ableto forgive man's sin and cleanse his heart from all unrighteousness (1John 1:9). The mission of the church is, "To make Christlike disciples in the nations." The Church of the |Nazarene seeks to share the love of God and the good news about Jesus Christ, and to demonstrate concern for the whole person by ministering to the Spiritual, Mental, Social and Physical.
