Our Mission

A district exists to facilitate the mission of each local church, through mutual support, the sharing of resources, and collaboration. The goal of the Florida District Resource Center is to complement and assist each local church in fulfilling its mission and objectives; to build morale, provide motivation, supply management and method assistance, and to organize and encourage organization of new churches and missions. (MANUAL p. 28.1)


Every Florida District congregation developing Christlike disciples locally and globally.


Every congregation accomplishing God’s unique plan, for His unique church, in their unique neighborhood and beyond.

Our Beliefs  

Agreed Statement of Belief of the Church of the Nazarene.

These are the beliefs Nazarenes hold to be true:

We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.

We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.

Our History

Florida Churches of the Nazarene existed as one district from 1915 until 1973, when the state was divided into three separate districts. The original Florida district represented four churches and less than 113 members.

Almost 30 years later, in May 2013, the North and Central Florida Districts voted by overwhelming majorities to reunite their two districts. A year of research, strategizing, and prayer preceded their merger in the spring of 2014.

The Florida District is now comprised of nearly 140 churches and missions, reaching our multi-ethnic communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
