The Church of the Nazarene and the Emergent Church
Don't give up! You are NOT alone. There are several groups of biblical Nazarenes who are fighting Emergent doctrine and practice and we're being contacted by more folks fed up with the liberal heresy in their churches and universities literally every day. These include Nazarene pastors, evangelists, lay people and others.
Below are many resources to educate and update concerned Christians about The Emergent Church in general a more specifically, the Church of the Nazarene.
One note...Emergent philosophy and error is not confined to just one denomination. It is widespread and growing. So, it is imperative that we vigorously expose it. Remember: souls are at stake!

This is Where the Battle is...
On July 24, 1776, John Wesley wrote a strong rebuke of a
tract written by a skeptic and deist (Soame Jenyns) which undermined
biblical inerrancy. In his journal it states: If he (Jenyns) is a
Christian, he betrays his own cause by averring that All Scripture is not
given by inspiration of God, but the writers of it were sometimes left to
themselves, and consequently made some mistakes.
Let that be an answer to all that Wesley did indeed believe in the inerrancy of the Scriptures.
So, how is it that so many Nazarene brethren do not? It is simply because, to the chagrin of Bible-believing Nazarenes, those in control of the denomination and many of those privileged to teach in their Bible colleges and seminary have chosen to believe that God either could not transmit to the writers accurately or has not faithfully preserved His precious Word. They have chosen to be esteemed in the eyes of "intellectuals" rather than God and are poisoning the next generation of Nazarene pastor and layperson in the process.
