About the Fayette Church of the Nazarene

The Fayette Church of the Nazarene was officially organized on June 7, 1925, by the following charter members: M.G. & Doris (Lester) Bair, John & Velva Ballmer, Welburn & Eva Brawley, Sentle Gray, Ira Jones, Isa Jones, Elmer Lester, Florence Lester, Victor Lester, Lloyd & Olive Shank, and La Vina Spengler.

As winter approached the people realized they needed a more permanent place of worship. They bought a lot at 424 South Fayette Street for $100 and purchased an old Dunkard Church building for $200. The men tore off the boards and the women pulled the nails. They hauled the materials to Fayette by horse and wagon and reassembled the church, which was used from November 1925 until the first unit of the present building was occupied in December 1964. The old building now houses the Fayette American Legion. Additions to the church building were made in 1979 and 1981. The latest addition, dedicated in October 2006, added a class room, foyer, large kitchen, pastor’s study, storage room, and handicapped restrooms.

We Are a Christian People: As members of the Church Universal, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic Trinitarian creedal statements of Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience. more>>

We Are a Holiness People: God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace, called by various terms including “entire sanctification” and “baptism with the Holy Spirit” – cleansing us from all sin, renewing us in the image of God, empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and producing in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness. more>>

We Are a Missional People: We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:1). Our mission (a) begins in worship, (b) ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, (c) encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and (d) prepares women and men for Christian service through Christian higher education.

The Church of the Nazarene has sixteen Articles of Faith that detail our doctrines. (Click here to see the full Articles of Faith.)

Our abbreviated Statement of Belief is:

We believe in one God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old & New Testament Scriptures, given by complete inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.

We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
