to live completely for Christ...

Beliefs | Gardendale Nazarene

And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 1:9-11

Welcome to Gardendale Church of the Nazarene.  We are located just north of Birmingham, Alabama.  We are a church with a simple mission:

“To Live Completely for Christ”
We desire to live out this mission through three core values:
• Prayer
• Discipleship
• Kindness

These three core values shape who we are as a church.  In essence, they are our road map. They set our course and direction. We want to be a people who are shaped by our relationship with our Savior.

It is my hope that you, too, are excited about how God might use you to do His work.  It is our prayer as a church that you find a church community that you can journey with as you follow Christ.  Together, let's worship our Lord, make Him evident in our lives and prepare for what He has in store.

Gardendale Church of the Nazarene is a part of the International Church of the Nazarene and as such shares its destiny to promote Christian Holiness as: a doctrine to believe, an experience to receive, and a process of lifelong growth.  

We strongly believe this to be a complete expression of the Great Commission and the very essence of discipleship.
