Our Mission

Arlington First Church of the Nazarene is helping people

become like Christ in their relationship with God, with believers, and with others by first, loving God, then loving and serving others.

Our Core Values


We choose to receive people as they are, not as they should be. 

We love others for who they are rather than what we want them to be. 

We trust God's grace for any changes in their lives.


We choose to spend our lives for Kingdom purposes. 

As we do, we depend on God to restore and renew our strength day by day.


We choose to see the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the world

through the eyes of Jesus and to do what we can to alleviate the suffering of others.


We choose to open up our hearts and homes to renew, protect, 

and heal those God has placed in our lives.


We choose to lift people up and emphasize the best in others. 


We choose to open our lives to a few trusted friends to honestly ask

and answer the hard questions necessary for spiritual growth. 


We choose to pardon the debts we are owed because of the debt Christ paid for us. 

We desire reconciliation over any claim to the hurt and bitterness caused by another.
