The 8th Street Church in OKC is a Church of the Nazarene. The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Organized in 1908, the denomination is now home to about 2.3 million members worshiping in more than 29,000 local congregations in 159 world areas.
In its earliest days, our denomination started churches in the urban core and was focused on three things:
- A commitment to cities and the poor
- Active involvement in social issues
- A doctrine of HOPE
Our desire is to return back to these essential issues by being a faithful presence in Midtown/Downtown. We want to be good neighbors, meet the needs of those around us, and provide a place of transformation by being a people of safety, inclusion, transformation, and healing.
We hold fast to the ancient creed of the Apostles:
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
