The purpose of this research was to evaluate the historical four-fold pattern of worship as a common ground for Christ-centered worship in the Church of the Nazarene. The project was an evaluation study in quasi-experimental mode utilizing a pretest-posttest design with no comparison group. The results of the research do reflect a general receptivity to the four-fold pattern but there was little indication for substantiating this pattern as a common ground for worship in the Church of the Nazarene. The author concludes that this process would take longer to establish as a model for worship.
