  • Our Dissenting Nazarene Heritage

    heritageChurch historians tend toward classification. When we look at Christian history, we tend to look for commonalities and differences; that is, shared testimony and different testimony. When looking at commonalities, we look for “family resemblances” in different churches, different beliefs and practices, and, most especially, in different time periods and geographical areas.

  • 100 Years Since Bresee's Call to Evangelism

    100-yearsA century after his death, John Wesley’s influence on Methodism had waned. Phineas F. Bresee sensed the impetus for the Church of the Nazarene in 1895, in large part due to this loss. We are now approaching this same century point since the loss of Bresee's influence on the Church of the Nazarene (he died in 1915).

    latinoMy ethnicity, my culture, my first and second languages (Spanish/ English), and the place where I was born and raised and where I initially served as a Nazarene pastor (the U.S. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico) makes me appreciative of what Phineas F. Bresee’s (1838–1915) biographers and others have called “his commitment to multicultural ministry.”

  • Not What I Planned On: A Pastor’s Thoughts on the Difficult Intersection of Urban and Bi-Vocational Ministry

    not-what-i-planned-onIn referring to his particular church in Los Angeles, as well as Church of the Nazarene buildings in general, Phineas Bresee once said, "We want places so plain that every board will say welcome to the poorest."1 Statements like this are what first attracted me to the Church of the Nazarene.
