This study of the growth of the Church of the Nazarene traces the denomination s doctrinal roots to the English Reformation and then explores the church s historical, intellectual, and doctrinal development. Giving special attention to the church s distinctive belief in entire sanctification and emphasis on education, the authors colorfully retell the story of the church from its humble origins in Pilot Point, Texas, to its expansion into an international community reaching the world through a warm-hearted faith.
