The Holiness family of churches has its roots in mid-nineteenth-century revivalism, particularly among Methodists. Holiness churches are Arminian, and many believe in divine healing. Their most pronounced "distinctive" is the belief in entire sanctification, also called "the second blessing." The Holiness movement, in turn, gave birth to Pentecostalism and to some of the Churches of God.
