Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.

"You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,

and in all Judea and Samaria, and to

the ends of the earth."

(Acts 1:8b)

As one of hundreds of Nazarene churches around the world, Visalia Naz joyfully partners in caring for hurting people and spreading the gospel throughout the world with other Nazarene churches through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. We regularly build care packages to send to to NCM, who then distributes them to areas devastated by hunger, human-trafficking, disease, or natural disasters.
A place to turn to, people who care, and life-affirming options.

You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. - Psalm 139:13-14

Why you should participate in missions

On January 8, 1956, an American missionary group consisting of five men - Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Ed McCully, Peter Flemming, and Roger Youderian - were speared to death on a sandbar called “Palm Beach” in the Curaray River of Ecuador. They had gone to teach the Huaoroni Indians about Jesus.

They had been warned not to go by fellow concerned Christians. They had rejected the advice, and paid the price with their lives.

What is it that compelled them to go? Was it naivety? Was it a desire to impress?

Jim Elliot, one of the men killed and the leader of the group, wrote in his journal 7 years prior:

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.

It seems that Jim and his friends understood this one truth, and it was a truth worth dying for - Christ is better than anything the world has to offer.

As Americans we live in a comfortable world. Most of us are well fed. We have homes. Two cars per family. Toys for the kids. Even the poorest among us are well off compared to many in the world.

And yet Jesus promised his followers, "Whoever loses his life for my sake will save it" (Luke 9). Jim and his crew literally lost their lives for the call of Jesus. They realized that real life is found in loving and obeying Jesus.

Our lives on earth are temporary. Your American comfort will not last forever. One day you will die. Our prayer at Visalia Naz is that each Christian would be willing to lay down their lives today for the call of Christ to love neighbor as self, pray for the persecuted, care for orphans and widows, feed the hungry, and make disciples (or followers) of Jesus.
