Introduction to Christian Holiness is a four-session course that explores the theme of holiness. This short course aims to help the student grasp the concept of holiness from a Biblical, historical and contemporary perspective and enable them to answer the question, ‘What does the life of holiness look like in the 21st century?’

This course begins by taking a closer look at the Bible, starting in the Old Testament and the character of God and moving on to the incarnation of Jesus in the New Testament. It also covers John Wesley's teachings on holiness, including his conviction that holiness belonged in the marketplace as well as the monastery and his controversial theology of 'Christian perfection'. The course then moves to looking at later holiness movements and a holiness revival in the 19th century.

What are the challenges facing Christians today? Do we need to amend the way holiness is presented so that more people will see it as an attractive goal rather than a daunting prospect? This course is offered to help the student answer these questions and in the hope that it will enrich the spiritual life of all those participate in it. This course is available online and is suitable for those with limited previous theological study.

This course is available on our Cliff College Online platform. It is a self-paced course, so you can work through the content as quickly or as slowly as you like.

The course costs £50, which is payable when you sign up. Payment can be made by credit or debit card.
