Start Here | Welcome!

YOU'RE ALREADY PART OF THE FAMILY

Whether you're looking for a new place to hear from God,  looking for a new church home, or you're in town visiting family and friends, you are already a part of our family! We understand that exploring Jesus or visiting a new church for the first time can be intimidating and uncomfortable experience, so please come just as you are! We hope you'll experience the presence of God on Sunday and see what He is doing at Richland Naz.

We do understand you might have a few questions before you come, so here is some helpful information:

When do you meet?

  • We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Plan to arrive a few minutes early so you can park, say hello, and find a seat. After the service, be sure to visit our Welcome Center where we can answer any questions you may have.
     
  • We also offer a variety of Sunday School classes for all ages Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. Come in through the main doors (under the awning) and we will get you connected to a Sunday School class!

What should I expect?

  • You can expect a friendly welcome, a dynamic service filled with scripture, prayer, worship music, and relevant teaching. 
     
  • Reading through our Beliefs will also help you understand who we are and what you can expect when you visit.

What About the Kids?

  • We provide children's programming for infants - 6th grade. Our Children's wing is located to the left of the sanctuary with it's own welcome center and check-in station. When you walk through the main doors, we will get you connected and show you where to go! 
  • For all the details on children's programming, please visit our Children's Ministry page.

What should I Wear?

  • At Richland Naz, the focus is on Christ, not on how we dress! Feel free to dress as dressy or as casual as you would like! If you wear shorts, jeans, flip flops, dressy, or business casual you will feel right at home!

WHAT STEPS DO I TAKE NEXT?

  • Get Connected! We want you to feel welcome here at Richland Naz and to connect in any way you can/desire. Whether that is through Small Groups, individual ministries, etc. you can find ways to connect on the Ministries page.

Church of the Nazarene Beliefs


GOD

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.  (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, I Peter 1:2, II Corinthians 13:14)

ETERNITY

Humanity was created to exist forever.  We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation.  When you die, you will either spend eternity in Heaven or Hell.  Eternal separation from God happens in Hell.  Eternal union with God occurs in Heaven.  (John 3:16, I John 2:25; 5:11-13, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15)

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all humanity by dying on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  (Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5; 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14-15, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, I Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13)

SALVATION

Salvation is a gift from God to all humanity.  People can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can humanity be saved from sin's penalty.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith.  (Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6; 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God.  He is present in the world to make men and women aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.  (II Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13; 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18)

THE BIBLE

The Bible is God's Word to all people.  It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  (II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21, II Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105,160, Psalm 12:6, Proverbs 30:5)

Mission |Belong. Believe. Become.

As the Body of Christ

  • We Belong to God and extend His love to everyone
  • We Believe in Jesus for new life and growth as we follow Him
  • We are Becoming a people of love, hope, and service

We Belong.

The greatest need of today's disconnected world is to belong, to feel you are valued and wanted. Our church family places utmost importance on belonging to God (Romans 1:6, 14:8). As we are connected to God through genuine faith in Jesus Christ, we extend His love to all. For faith to take hold and grow, everyone first needs to know that they matter. You matter to Jesus and you matter to us!


We Believe.

Our Faith is centered on the life changing sacrifice of Jesus Christ. His death and resurrection have paved the way for a relationship with our loving Creator. Believing involves more than a simple consent, but a deep commitment to know and follow Christ (John 6:35, 14:12). He is our source of truth, of forgiveness and positive change.


We Become.

We have not arrived, but through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are being transformed to be more like Jesus every day. This doesn't just apply to us individually, but corporately as well. Together we are becoming a people of God who reflect his presence and character through our love, hope and outward expressions.
