T9638 Doctrine of Sanctification
- Unit Code & NameT9638 Doctrine of Sanctification
- DescriptionThis unit seeks to enable students to interpret and integrate the biblical material on sanctification into a coherent doctrinal framework. It lays the doctrinal framework for use in pastoral ministry settings.
Since the doctrine of holiness is a theological distinctive within the Wesleyan tradition, it is very important that students not only know the biblical foundation, historical development, and theological formulation of the doctrine, but also be able to communicate it in a variety of ministry settings. The class works with the biblical, historical and theological material, seeking to synthesize a nuanced understanding of the doctrine for today. It provides an opportunity to explore Wesleyan concepts and develop personal and ministry responses to identifiable needs in the student's current ministry placement.
