WorshipWe begin each of our services with a time of worship and prayer. The purpose and focus of our worship is to invite our congregation to the throne through a blended style of singing, contemplation, and prayer. Our focus is not on the music, but on interacting with the presence of the Holy Spirit among God's people. We recognize that worship is not simply singing together, but instead we are to worship God in every aspect of our lives. Romans 12:1- Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God- this is your true and proper worship. As we gather weekly together, we are given the opportunity to practice that worship corporately.
The Church of the Nazarene exists to serve as an instrument for advancing the kingdom of God through the preaching and teaching of the gospel throughout the world. Our objective is a spiritual one, namely, to evangelize as a response to the Great Commission of our Lord to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).
Proclaiming Christ and becoming disciples through worship, Bible study, fellowship and missions.
The congregation, which was to become the Greenbrier Church of the Nazarene, first organized in the spring of 1904. There were approximately twenty (20) charter members. In 1908, the Church of the Nazarene as a national organization was formed at Pilot Point, Texas. The objective of the denomination was the preaching and promotion of Christian holiness among believers, and a vigorous evangelistic enterprise in America and around the world. There were approximately sixty (60) congregations in Arkansas that joined the newly formed denomination including Greenbrier. The Church has gone through several building programs over these past 100 years, and we continue to remodel and add to our existing campus in order to best serve our congregation and community. At the present time, our average morning worship attendance is over 350. God has so richly blessed us over the span of over a hundred years. He has been so faithful to provide for our every need. We will continue to work towards God's will and follow the path laid before us to become agents of renewal in the community of Greenbrier, Arkansas. To God be the glory—Great things He has done!
