Missions

The Church of the Nazarene has been a church that believes in living a holy life as well as living the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). This Great Commission is where Jesus instructs us to spread His word and teach His commands to the world. We accomplish this through Nazarene Missions International (NMI). World Missions continue to be an integral part of the work of the WCN.
