SFNaz  is a Bible believing congregation.  We are part of the global Church of the Nazarene, which is a part of the Wesleyan-Aremenian Tradition.  The Church of the Nazarene was organized in 1908 and is now home to more than 2 million members worshiping in over 26,000 local congregations in 159 world areas.  The following are the beliefs we hold to be true and are common to Christians worldwide. 


  • We believe in God-the Father, Son and Holy Spirit


  • We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures are inspired by God, and contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.


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


  • We believe that all who fail to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior are hopelessly and eternally lost.


  • We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race, and that whoever 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 salvation, 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.
