We know people coming through the doors may or may not have experience with church, and may or may not have a good one, so we want you to feel comfortable when you come to worship. You will be greeted well and directed by our greeters to the various areas of the church. Our worship services, and our ministries, are designed for the whole family. There is no expectation for dress, so please just come however you feel comfortable.

Come with the expectation of a lively, friendly, and truth-filled service. As we worship in song, prayer, and in the Word, we expect to have an encounter with the living God who desires to spend time with us.

On Sundays and Wednesdays, there are Bible studies and age-level ministries for everyone. The whole family can come to learn about God and spend time with others. You will find a description of all our classes on the Connect page of the website.

Every denomination has a set of beliefs with many carrying over between other groups. In the Nazarene church, we are Wesleyan-Arminian in our thinking and doctrine. That’s the technical, theological term! We have 16 Articles of Faith from Scripture that we hold to be absolutely essential. These are beliefs…convictions…that will not change as our culture & times do. They are foundational to who we are and to who God wants us to be. Click on the link below to go to the official Nazarene website and read the Articles of Faith.

The other item I want to touch on are the core beliefs of Blue Springs First Church of the Nazarene (BSFCN). These don’t look like the above items, although we very much hold to them. These 3 items really pertain to our mission, our reason for existence, as a church right here in Blue Springs.

We believe in reaching the lost. This means we believe Christ died for every person and wants everyone to come into a relationship with Him. We are supposed to be a part of that work. In fact, we have been created, called, redeemed, and formed for this work. This will happen, largely, as we are a Christ-like community right here in our neighborhood. Our desire to be part of this work comes from our love of God and people. We genuinely love people, want to get to know our neighborhood/community, and let them know God loves them.

We believe in making disciples. You see, we can’t just stop at people becoming Christians…God wants us to enjoy a journey with Him where we learn and grow. So, our desire is for each person to become more and more like Jesus Christ. We invest much time & energy into our discipleship ministries, so we can be in a growing relationship with God. All of us come alongside each other to learn about faith, prayer, God, and more. This growth takes place in a community of people relying on God to help them live out their faith in real life, facing real problems.

We believe in helping the hurting. God has made it quite clear that He loves & cares for those who cannot help themselves, who have no resources, and He fights against injustice. We align ourselves with His heart and believe we must be at work in our neighborhood & community to help those who are hurting physically, emotionally, and more. We look for ways to be a help for people and share the love of Jesus Christ with them.
