Abstract

The purpose of this research is to determine Ellen White’s concept of sanctification
or spiritual holiness. Ellen White’s definition of sanctification is biblical, gradual,
maturing process and a goal for Christian living. She agrees on the point that two
elements of justification are distinctive even though they are inseparable, and that
justification is the starting point for spirituality. She points out that sanctification
experience is as importance to say as for that final judgment because without
holiness no one can see God. She considers Christian life as pilgrimage and holiness
or sanctification as fitness for heaven. She recognizes that sanctification is not just
an emotional thing but it must be manifested inwardly and outwardly in a genuine
Christian life. She emphasizes the importance of genuine faith that manifests by
good works. She recognizes the Holy Spirit as the agent of sanctification, salvation
as restoring man in the image of his Marker, perfection as growing in love rather that
faultless or sinless, and holy living as Christian purpose of existence
