Who We Are?

Our Mission

The Kissimmee First Church of the Nazarene’s Mission is to be a Knowing, Growing, Making and Going People!

We believe that God has called us to KNOW more about who He is through Bible study, small groups, preaching and teaching. We are a GROWING people, growing in our spiritual journey with HIM through worship and fellowship with people on the same journey as we are. God has called us to be a MAKING people, making Christlike disciples in all the nations! GOING into all areas of our communities, neighborhoods, schools, parks and places where people are.  The Church is made up of the people, not the building.

Our Core Values

We are a Great Commission Church (Matthew 28:19-20). As a global community of faith, we are commissioned to take the good news of the Life of Jesus Christ to people everywhere and to spread the message of scriptural holiness (Christlike living) across the lands.

  • We believe the Bible forms a story of God's self-revelation particularly in the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ. Christ atoned for our sins on the cross so He could set us free from sin (Romans 3:25).
  • We believe in God’s prevenient grace that goes before and draws us to God. This grace stirs within us a hunger to seek something more in our lives and empowers us to respond when the tender voice of the Spirit draws us to God’s heart. God draws us then lovingly awaits our response (John 6:44; John 12:32).
  • We believe in God’s justifying grace that no longer counts our sins against us when we ask for forgiveness (2 Corinthians 5:19). God reconciles, pardons, and restores our relationship with God’s self as only a loving parent can do. Christ’s death on the cross makes our justification possible (Romans 5:8).
  • We believe in sanctifying grace that transforms us by the power of His Holy Spirit working within us from the moment of our conversion until we go to heaven. Continued growth in our relationship with God’s Spirit takes us to deeper levels of commitment. We speak often of Christian perfection or entire sanctification as a second instantaneous work of grace when God purges a consecrated heart from self-centered control and pride and fills it with divine love to completely control heart and life. Self-seeking is replaced with holy desire to fulfill the two great commands of Jesus to love God and others (Matthew 22:34-40). Transformation and growth in grace continues to occur over a lifetime as we submit our wills to His will.
