Sample text

If sanctification was not a second work of grace but began at conversion as the believer appropriated the benefits of the Cross, then what about the baptism of the Holy Spirit? Was it a second work of grace, or was it too associated with conversion? Durham continued to regard the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a second crisis experience following conversion. Since sanctification had no initial objective sign, it was easy for him to collapse it back into his previous encounter with God at repentance.

Thereafter, this group also became Pentecostal. The Church of God had been founded in 1886 by R. G. Spurling as a Holiness organization originally called the Christian Union and later the Holiness Church. In 1896, a great revival took place in the Shearer Schoolhouse in Cherokee County, North Carolina. About 130 persons received the Holy Spirit with tongues, and many healings took place. However, this experience did not become a doctrine, nor did the group as a whole seek it. When the Pentecostal movement became widely known in 1906, many people in the Church of God began to seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit with tongues and to preach it.

From the time he received the Holy Ghost, Durham could never again preach on sanctification as a separate work of grace. Instead, “the Spirit began to reveal in my heart the finished work of Christ on the Cross of Calvary. . ” He taught that there was no second work known as sanctification. Instead, sanctification is an integral part of conversion and an ongoing process. To be holy, we do not need to seek a second work of grace, but we simply need to appropriate the benefits of the finished work of Calvary.
