Holiness embodied in the Asia-Pacific context

Post-modernism, Asia-Pacific ways of thought, and a renewed reading of Scripture prompt us to see that
the Western over-emphasis upon individuality was a mistake. Revivalism arose in a culture that separated
individuals. Our hymns and our preaching reflect this centeredness upon self. Consequently, our
church’s emphasis has been upon the entire sanctification of individuals alone without, sometimes, balancing
that with an equal call to responsible participation within community. Both our context and the
Bible call upon us to seek ways by which our call to holiness may be received and embodied collectively.
Our personal holiness cannot be conceived apart from what and who we are as one part of a body of believers
seeking to find out what it means, in this time and in this place, to be a holiness church.
