The Holiness movement is an American off-shoot of
Methodism which generally follows the
Arminian doctrinal teachings of
John Wesley. Holiness Christians left Methodism in the 19th and early 20th centuries because they felt that mainstream Methodism was failing to emphasize Wesleyan teachings on sanctification, particularly
the experience of
Christian Perfection, which Holiness theologians usually refer to as
entire sanctification, following Wesley's colleague
John Fletcher. Among the more notable Holiness bodies are the Church of the Nazarene and the Salvation Army.
