- We believe that sanctification, which is a setting apart for God, is positional, progressive, and ultimate. Positionally it is already complete since the believer is in Christ and is set apart unto God as Christ is set apart unto God.
1 Cor 1:2, 6:11, Heb 10:10
- Since he retains his sinful nature, however, there is need for progressive sanctification whereby the Christian grows in grace by the power of the Holy Spirit.
