Expressing a Nazarene Identity

To understand the Church of the Nazarene, we start with a look at our
history. The church is the product of a work of God’s Spirit that began
with the revivals of John and Charles Wesley in Great Britain in the
eighteenth century and continued around the world. Nineteenth century
Americans considered the continuation of this Wesleyan revival a holiness
movement within the existing churches. Like John Wesley, the holiness
movement desired to revive the churches by emphasising the sanctifying
grace of God within us and in the midst of us, and thereby to bring
moral reform to the nations.
