Our History and Beliefs
We are a small congregation of around 150 people who live primarily in Walker and Catoosa county. We belong to the Church of the Nazarene denomination.
The Church of the Nazarene is the largest of a group of denominations that originated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries out of a deeper-life nationwide revival that emphasized the Methodist teaching of sanctification. This tradition was rooted in the work and teachings of John and Charles Wesley, early members of the Church of England and the founders of Methodism.
The Church of the Nazarene is located in the mainstream of the Christian faith, subscribing to the central orthodox teachings embodied in the creeds of the early Christians. Our theology affirms the saving work of Christ for all and human freedom to respond to the grace of God as well as the power to live a holy life.
From its beginning the Church of the Nazarene has been committed to quality education, personal piety, and social justice—a commitment reflected in the mission and practice of CVNaz.
Our church, Chattanooga Valley Church of the Nazarene was organized in 1935 and has always ministered to the Chattanooga Valley community. Our building and grounds are located in the heart of Flintstone, Georgia and our families live primarily in the valley but also in Dade, Hamilton, and Catoosa counties in addition to Walker.
Our church ministers to the community through Sunday and Wednesday worship services and discipleship programs, community partnerships, and children and youth programs. The campus includes the sanctuary, a family life center with meeting rooms, a gymnasium and coffee shop, recreational fields, a walking track and a pavilion. See photos. The church serves as a voting precinct and frequently hosts community events and shares its facility with several groups.
Libby’s Playground and our Walking Track are open to all throughout the week.
All are truly welcome to our services.
