Our Brantford Campus
Welcome to BrantNaz. Our full name is "The Brantford Church of the Nazarene", but that's way too many syllables!
We're a simple Church community with a simple mission: To love people as Jesus modeled for us. We're motivated out of the fact of having come into an actual, real-time relationship with the very same Jesus. You'd find that the connections we share with one another are real and even vulnerable. And any pretense of having it all together is discouraged because, like you, we're on a journey to get life "right". Only, with Jesus we'd describe the journey as an adventure.
Have a look around the site to see more of what we're about. And please feel welcome to contact me or one of our other ministry leaders. Of course you'd be most welcome to join us at one of our sponsored events, many of which get LIVE streamed through our "BrantNaz" group site on Facebook.
Thanks for stopping by BrantNaz. And know that there is an "adventure" with Jesus waiting for you too!

What We Believe
We believe in one God who has expressed himself in personal ways. We know God's personality as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible communicates God's saving message and is our reliable authority in all matters related to faith and Christian living
We believe that all humankind struggles with sin
We believe that unless we experience God's help and salvation through a faith commitment to Jesus Christ, our eternal future is one of separation from God and all that is good.
We believe the love and grace of God is extended to every person in the provision Jesus Christ made in his death and resurrection. By turning from our own selfishness and trusting Jesus Christ, we experience a new life, being freed from the old patterns of self-destructive acts called sin.
We believe our new life in Jesus Christ is the gateway to transformation. Following our moment of faith in Jesus, we believe there is another moment in which we present our life completely to Christ in order to live under his authority and to experience his transforming power.
We believe that Christian experience is more than a change of mind. It is accompanied by assurance that is grounded in both the Scriptures as well as the inner witness of God's Spirit.
We believe that all who live for Jesus Christ have an eternal future that is unimaginably wonderful. Our belief in such a future includes both the fulfillment of God's creative purpose as well as the accountability of all persons endowed with the power of choice.

About BrantNaz's Logo
The Cross is subtle but central
The colours speak of commitment to diversity
The characters are together ... and have each other's backs
But the characters are also facing outward, looking beyond the walls, hands reaching out in service
