OUR MINISTRY STATEMENT
Responding to the Great Commission, the mission statementfor the Eurasia Region of the Church of the Nazarene is to develop an indigenous, interdependent, self-supporting, holiness church in the Wesleyan—Arminian tradition.
The Eurasia Region Church of the Nazarene is one of the six regions in the Church of the Nazarene global denomination.
Founded in 1908, the denomination is the largest in the classical Weslyan-Holiness tradition, with 2.3 million members, in 29.000 churches, sharing Christ’s love with their communities in 159 areas.
The doctrine that distinguishes the Church of the Nazarene and other Wesleyan denominations from most other Christian denominations is that of entire sanctification. Nazarenes believe that God calls Christians to a life of holy living that is marked by an act of God, cleansing the heart from original sin and filling the individual with love for God and humankind.
Through entire consecration of the believer to do God’s will, Nazarenes live a life of seeking to serve God through service to others. Like salvation, entire sanctification is an act of God’s grace, not of our works. Our service to God is an expression of our love for Him, showing our gratitude for the grace that has been extended to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Eurasia Region’s central support office is located in Busingen, Germany, where a small team of workers, led by our regional director, listen to the leaders across our seven fields so that we can provide effective administrative assistance to our leadership team at all levels and in our wide-ranging cultural contexts.
Some of our staff also work remotely from other locations across Europe, allowing us to be closer to our grassroots network of churches and leaders, giving us a regional perspective.
