Scripture tells us that believers are “a royal priesthood” (1 Peter 2:9). This means that all Christians, in one form or another, are called into places of ministry and leadership.
Not only is this a great privilege, it is also a great responsibility. Women and men desiring to serve in church leadership in some capacity undergo basic training to assure that they understand the foundations of the Christian faith and of our Nazarene identity. This includes a deepening knowledge and appreciation of Scripture, theology, ministry, mission, history, and holiness. Frameworks for Lay Leadership is a series of six books designed to do just that—equip lay leaders for ministry in the Church, whether local, district, or general. These books have the greatest impact when they are read, processed, applied, and contextualised in partnership with a qualified mentor.
Welcome to this journey of transformation!
Embracing a Doctrine of Holiness—Although they have not always been kept connected, entire sanctification and Christian perfection are integral parts of a biblical doctrine of holiness. The roots of the doctrine go back into Scripture and can be traced in every age of Church history. This short book seeks to help Christians understand, experience, and then live out the biblical and theological truth of heart holiness in their own life and in their community. It assumes a knowledge of the companion books in the series.\
