The mission of the Claresholm Church of the Nazarene is to glorify God through: Christian Worship Teaching God's Word and, Making Disciples
Often people ask about the name, Church of the Nazarene.
We're glad they do, for it gives us opportunity to explain something
about who we are.
Just as people who live in Calgary are called Calgarians, and
people who live in Toronto are known as Torontonians, so, Jesus was
called a "Nazarene" since he came from the town of Nazareth, a rather
poor town in Galilee.
Although people used the term "Nazarene" as an insult, Jesus
welcomed the identity as one willing to associate with the lonely
and forgotten of his day. Likewise, our name reminds us of our mission
to reach out to all people with compassion and love, regardless of
social or economic status. Our desire is to share the love of God
with all people everywhere. We say, "Welcome to the Church of the
Nazarene -- Our Church Can Be Your Home."
