Core Actions

  • Praying


    Prayer is perhaps the greatest earthly privilege we as Christians are given: communion with God. In simplest terms, prayer is speaking with God.

  • Giving

    Just as the earliest Christians “pooled their resources so that each person’s need was met,” (Acts 2:45, The Message) believers today eagerly share what they have to bring new members into God’s family.



  • Discipling


    “Go and make disciples” were Jesus’ parting words as he sent his friends to join his mission in drawing all people to Him.

  • Educating

    Nazarenes everywhere are sharing the mission stories of the church. Telling the story instills passion for mission.
