The Nazarene Messenger was a publication edited by Phineas F. Bresee, one of the founders of the Church of the Nazarene. It was published weekly from 1898-1910, during the early days of the denomination. Editorial duties were also performed at different times by J.P. Whidney, C.V. LaFontaine, and R. Pierce.

A publication on the holiness movement in the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries, The Nazarene Messenger contained theological articles, reports on international missions, and news from churches and pastors within the young Church of the Nazarene.

The Nazarene Messenger Online is a growing online repository for this important publication. We have made several years of the Messenger available online, for use by researchers. They are viewable on the new Nazarene Scribd account. It is our hope that this resource will help pastors connect with their Nazarene heritage.
