Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

As a global community of faith, we are commissioned to take the Good News of life in Jesus Christ to people everywhere and to spread the message of scriptural holiness across the lands. Grounded in the Wesleyan tradition, Nazarenes understand themselves to be a people who are Christian, holiness, and missional, and they have embraced the mission statement: “To make Christlike disciples in the nations.”

Organized in 1908, the denomination is now home to about 2.5 million members worshipping in more than 30,000 congregations in 164 world areas.

Showered wtih Love Mobile Showers

Changing Lives, One Hot Shower at a Time.  The idea for Showered with Love Mobile Showers was birthed right here at Horizon by its Founder,  Mary Marsili.  Mary shared her vision and gained the support of several church members. Showered with Love currently  serves  our local unhoused  community 4 days a week with three private shower stalls and two shaving stations.  Visitors receive so much more when they visit Mary and her Team.  Learn how you can support this ministry!

Nazarene Compassionate Ministry

Women and Girls Suppot Project

When women are empowered to earn their own income, they uplift themselves, their families, and communities. While gender disparities persist around the world, when they are reduced, girls receive fuller access to schooling and the chance to dream bigger dreams for their future.

Local Nazarene churches are leading the efforts against gender-based poverty by giving women and girls the tools to learn, start small businesses, and earn a wage that helps support their families. Each project is designed to send the message that women are equally valued and made in God’s image.

Nazarene Missions International

The Church of the Nazarene is involved in missions locally and all over the world through Nazarene Missions International (NMI).  Nazarene churches are called to participate in missions through praying, giving, educating, and engaging children and youth.

NMI provides the infrastructure, the spiritual dynamic vehicle, whereby the local church is mobilized in mission. NMI brings missions into the local church in such a way that every Nazarene will be glad to be a part of global outreach, spreading the good news of salvation to the ends of the earth.
