WHO WE ARE

The Holiness Partnership is a Christian organization in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition with a vision of reclaiming the message of holiness and resourcing the Church to be faithful and fruitful.

In the fall of 2020, a group of pastors gathered together with a shared desire to return the Church to its original mission of proclaiming and living according to the truths of Scripture and fulfilling the Great Commission as Jesus instructed the disciples in Matthew 28:19-20: "Go and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

Inspired by this commission and a love for the Biblical foundation championed by the founders of our Wesleyan-Holiness tradition — one of holy living, unearned grace, Biblical truth, missional outreach, and love for the "least of these" —  this group of pastors felt led to form "the Holiness Partnership." 

Our mission is to re-discover the vision and understanding of Biblical Christianity, re-emphasize the Biblical doctrines of the Holiness church, re-invigorate the local church for mission and evangelism, and re-capture fidelity to Biblical truth.

We pray that, like the apostles who were "filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly," this movement of Believers may be used by God to speak the truth boldly and help re-invigorate the Church to truly embody Christ's mission for us on earth. Please pray with us and join us as we seek the Lord's will for His holy people. Reach out to us to learn more.
