As Christians, we believe that all congregations have both the ability and responsibility to reach out in compassion to those around them. This is an outworking of our love for God and love for others. Every church, no matter how big or small, can come alongside those who are in need and be a source of hope, love, and transformation.

The purpose of this document is to provide an introduction to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) and a foundation for engaging in ministries of compassion through the local church. It outlines NCM’s:

i) Principles – through the sharing of our mission, approach, and theology, as well as the standards and values that underpin our approach to church-led community development and humanitarian relief.

ii) Practices – in the different ways in which NCM partners with churches, including policies, procedures, and resources that will help you design compassionate ministry efforts.
