Corps of Pastors USA-Can 2006

This continues a series of studies of the corps of pastors in the Church of the Nazarene. In 1988 the Research Center, responding to a request from the Board of General Superintendents, conducted an analysis of the corps of pastors of the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada. In the fall of 1996 a second study was conducted at the request of the Pastoral Ministries Director.

BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! Interpreting Words and Images in Revelation.

The purpose of this essay is to suggest that Revelation could be interpreted as a series of images and sounds, rather than as a text, full of words. I have not done a full content analysis, but a quick review yields a number of clues to sensory images: “Revelation” itself is a visual term. The book itself was meant to be read aloud “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy and blessed are those who hear it.” Rev. 1:3.

“We’ve Got Spirit, Yes we do:” Sanctification in the Acts Church

Abstract: The Greek word pneuma offers insight into the difference between salvation and sanctification as understood by the Acts church. Salvation is cleansing from sin, symbolized by water images including water baptism. Sanctification is filling with the Holy Spirit, symbolized by air images including a dove. The word pneuma means spirit, breath, air, or wind. This essay suggests that the Acts church would have conceived of sanctification as exchanging our human breath, for the Holy Breath of God.
