Formerly Pentecostal Church of the Nazarene A religious movement which began in the United States towards the close of the 19th century, in New England, in New York City, and in Los Angeles, California. The founders were dissenters from the Methodist churches because they believed that full liberty to emphasize the doctrine of entire sanctification, called the "full gospel," was not allowed even in the Methodist churches. The organizations in New York and New England united as the "Association of Pentecostal Churches of America" in 1896. The Los Angeles body joined the others at the first convention of the Pentecostal Church of the Nazarene, held in Chicago in 1907. This body is in accord with the Methodist Episcopal Church in its doctrine. Accepting the Apostles' Creed in general, it gives special emphasis to the doctrine of entire sanctification. It is congregational in its government. The Church of the Nazarene publishes four periodicals. Foreign missionary work is carried on by the General Foreign Missionary Board in Africa, China, Japan, India, Central and South America, Cuba, Mexico, and the Cape Verde Islands.
