The District Church of the Nazarene exists to encourage and resource ministries through the local Churches of the Nazarene as well as to create new ministries and local fellowships in order to impact people with the life-changing power of Jesus Christ in Northeast Texas.
We are committed to carry out this mission through evangelism, discipleship, ministry, fellowship, and holiness all embraced by prayer.
Evangelism - We are committed to sharing the life-changing power of the Gospel so that others may know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Our efforts include personal evangelism training utilizing the “ABC’s of Evangelism,” revivals, camping and retreat ministries, and compassionate ministries.
Discipleship - We will endeavor to make disciples through Sunday School classes (REACH), Bible studies, small group ministries, Dare-to-Care, The Master’s Plan, and membership classes. We purpose to build relationships with people and nurture new Christians in their Christian walk so that they will become fully functioning disciples and members of our local churches.
Ministry - Every local church is a ministry center and every member a minister. Opportunities abound for ministries to all age groups through Sunday school, Nazarene Missions International, Nazarene Youth International, Scottsville Camp and Conference Center , Compassionate Ministry Centers, Work and Witness, but especially through the local church.
Fellowship - Multiple opportunities are provided for Christian fellowship through our local, zone, mission area, district, regional, and international church events.
Holiness - We are "called unto holiness." We are called to be crucified with Christ, so that it is not us who lives but Christ living in us and through us reflecting His nature and pure love. We then are to have His heart and His mindset.
