Doctrinal Statement

Caribbean Nazarene College is owned and operated by the International Church of the Nazarene. CNC stands firmly in the Wesleyan-Armenian tradition, unashamedly asserting that God is able in this day to give men and women holy hearts and to enable them to live holy lives in the midst of an unholy world.

Applicants who are not members of the Church of the Nazarene should be of the same theological persuasion or should not oppose the theological persuasion of the Church of the Nazarene.

The following is a brief summary of our essential beliefs. We Believe:

  • In one God–the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • That the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by divine inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith in Christian living.
  •  That humankind is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil.
  •  That those who die without acknowledging and receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are hopelessly and eternally lost.
  •  That the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that anyone who repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
  •  That believers are to be sanctified wholly, after regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • That the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
  • That our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
