“The Church as a Chosen People!” I Peter 2:9
Throughout the last 109 years, the passion that has formed the Church of the Nazarene “Out of many One” has been to make Christ-Like Disciples in the nations through the message of holiness.
This message did not originate with us and it is not ours to contain!
Like Peters Readers, the C.O.N. is a Chosen People.
· The Israelites were a grace formed people. (I Peter 1:2)
· They had been brought into being by the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.
· This choosing is not Unique to the believers to whom Peter wrote as well.
Like Peters Readers, The C.O.N. is a Holy People.
- He echoes this claim for all believers. (I Peter 1:14-16)
- This is the Heritage to the Lord has called the church.
Like Peters Readers, The C.O.N. is a Sent People
- We are a chosen race…” that we may declare…”
- Ours is not a passion for our own good. (2 Peter 3:9)
- Our Mission is a bold one: To Make Christ-Like Disciples in the Nations”
