Piles of Books


The Church of the Nazarene recognizes all believers are called to minister to others. We also affirm Christ calls some to a specific and public ministry even as He chose and ordained His 12 apostles. When the church, illuminated by the Holy Spirit, recognizes such a divine call, the church endorses and assists the individual’s entry into a lifetime of ministry. Both women and men may be ordained and may also be elected to places of leadership within the Church of the Nazarene, including the office of pastor.
