The core values of the Church of the Nazarene remind us that we are a Christian people, a Holiness people and a missional people. In Sunday School Ministries we hold to these same core values.
We are a Christian people. We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord of Scripture. We look to Scripture as the primary source of spiritual truth confirmed by reason, tradition, and experience. Sunday School is the place to teach the vital importance of Scripture to our children, teens, and adults and to disciple them in their Christian walk. Sunday School remains one of the church's most powerful ways to affirm the Word of God as the foundation for living the Christian life.
We are a Holiness people. Sunday School is the place where disciples of all ages can be taught the doctrine of holiness, enter into the experience, and be guided in their process of becoming more like Jesus through regular Bible study and personal spiritual accountability.
We are a missional people. Our mission is to go and make disciples. The goal of Sunday School ministries is to reach lost people for Jesus. Through the Sunday School, we challenge all ages to be disciples of Jesus Christ and to invite others to do the same. Sunday School is the place where we help each other live the holy life through mutual support, Christian fellowship, and loving accountability. John Wesley said, "God has given us to each other to strengthen each other's hands."
In Sunday School Ministries we believe that Sunday School is the place to discover what it means to be Christian, holiness people who are on a global mission to reach and disciple people of all ages.
