SUBSTANTIALIST AND RELATIONAL UNDERSTANDINGS OF ENTIRE SANCTIFICATION AMONG CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE CLERGY

Bill Kirkemo

The purpose of this study was to determine the understandings of entire sanctification among the clergy of the Church of the Nazarene, the extent to which the entire sanctification affected their practice of ministry, and what intervening variables might account for difference in theologies of entire sanctification among the clergy. In order to accomplish these goals, a Holiness/Relational Index was created to measure the understandings of entire sanctification and to establish a baseline from which correlations between theologies and the practice of ministry could be measured.

This study of the corps of pastors continues a series of studies of the corps of pastors in the Church of the Nazarene. The series began in 1988 when the Church Growth Research Center, responding to a request from the Board of General Superintendents, conducted an analysis of the corps of pastors of the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada. Since then a similar study has been conducted approximately every ten years. The primary source of data for the series has been the ministerial records maintained by the General Secretary of the Church of the Nazarene.
