Welcome . . .
Our mission, our purpose at Yucca Valley Nazarene (YVN) is to help people take their next step towards Christ.
Each of us is in a different place on our spiritual journey; some are just beginning while others are much further along in their walk. Here at YVN we believe that anyone can discover forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love and meaning for life in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Forgiveness of sins and a right-standing with God the Father is given to everyone who believes Jesus and asks him to forgive their sin. This act of faith and repentance establishes us in a personal relationship with Jesus; we are “believers.” When we are reconciled to God, we accept that we can be reconciled with one another: loving each other as God loves us, and forgiving each other as God forgave us. This serves as an example of the character of Christ in our lives.
We believe that the Bible is the main source of spiritual truth confirmed by reason, tradition, and experience.
YVN is a holiness church. We teach that believers in Christ can experience a richer fellowship with God, and through the filling of his Holy Spirit we can have victory over sin, and the power to witness and serve.
YVN is a protestant church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. It is part of the denomination of the Church of the Nazarene that is home to more than 2 million members worldwide, worshipping in over 26,000 congregations in 156 world areas.
The Balanced Christian Life...is there such a thing? It's seems difficult these days to bring balance within our lives with so many things coming our way. Sometimes it seems like we are anything but balanced. Maybe we are faced with our relationships falling apart or are moving from one bad relationship to another. We are trying to find a solid career but can't really figure the next step yet are barely making it. Others of us seem to have everything together but something is missing. The list is certainly endless.
There are many of us who are not where God would like us to be. We are not who God intended us to be. I believe He wants so much more for our lives and we simply are not living it. Simply put, we tend to keep God on the sidelines and the result is a God sidelined life.
The next few weeks we are going to explore how getting right with God brings a balance to our lives in ways we could never imagine. A Balanced Christian life out of the question? Well...let's see what God has to say about that!
