The Church of the Nazarene is a denomination in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Our church was founded
to preach, teach, and model holiness of heart and life.
We invite you to look around our website to learn more and hope you'll consider joining us this week for worship.
Pastor Mike Shinn
Welcome Pastor Mike and Kelly Shinn to Lighthouse Church of the Nazarene!
All of us look forward to your leadership of our church, and we are anxious to get to know you and your family. We hope that the friends you make
here will be as treasured as those you left behind. We’re glad God has chosen you to Lighthouse COTN in Jacksonville, FL.
Thank you Pastor Alan Flood for your leadership and devotion to God's work. You have truly been a blessing.
The church is not a mission, but exists because of God's mission
We are a Great Commission church. The mission of the Church of the Nazarene is to make Christlike disciples in the nations.
O U R C O R E V A L U E S
As members of the Church Universal, we join with all believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ
and affirming the historic Trinitarian creeds and beliefs of the Christian faith.
God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a
second work of grace called entire sanctification, cleansing the heart from original sin
and filling us with love for God and humankind as we live Christianlike lives.
We are a sent people. God sends us across the street and around the globe to participate in His mission.
That mission (a) begins in worship, (b) ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, (c) encourages
believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and (d) prepares women and men for
Christian service through Christian higher education.
