This thesis is the will endeavor to set forth the official doctrine of the Alliance as it is found in the official documents of the Society and in the writings of Dr. Simpson and Dr. Pardington. We will look briefly into the background of these men, and will make an exegetical study of the Scriptures on which they based their doctrine. 1 will also endeavor to express the doctrine of sanctification that is being taught by those who do not hold to the views of Simpson and Pardington, as it is being taught in the majority of Alliance Churches today, with a look at some of the reasons for the change in teaching. Finally 1 will discuss the doctrine in relation to the purpose, goal, and calling of the Alliance with suggestions as to what should be done about the situation as it now exists.
