East Gate Church Of Nazarene
Churches in Roanoke, VA
As members of the Church Universal, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic Trinitarian creedal statements of Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience. God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We trust that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a 2nd work of grace, called by various terms including entire sanctification and baptism with the Holy Spirit cleansing us from all sin.
What We Believe
read moreWe believe in one God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the inspiration of the Bible, Old and New Testament, which inerrantly reveals God's will and everything we need for a life of faith and following Jesus. We believe that sin separates us from God, and that sin is both depravity (original sin) and actual sin (knowingly disobeying God). We believe you must repent of your sin to be saved, and that atonement comes only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that each person has been granted the freedom by God to choose between right and wrong.
