Park Lane Church is a local expression of the International Church of the Nazarene, a worldwide network of churches that stays connected and accountable for the primary sake of The Mission: To make Christ-like disciples in the nations.
The Core Values of the Church of the Nazarene are to be:
1) A Christian People ~ 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.
2) A Holiness People ~ God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace: to cleanse us from all sin, to renew us in the image of God, to empower us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and to produce in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.
3) A Missional People ~ We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom.
Matthew 28.19-20 ~ “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Park Lane Church of the Nazarene serves on the MidSouth District, 143 churches serving West Tennessee and all of the state of Mississippi.
