The Korean Christian Evangelical Holiness Church is a denomination that founded Seoul Theological university, so, the history of Seoul Theological University shares the history of the Holiness Church together.

 1. History

on May 30, 1907, Kim Sang-joon and Jeoung Bin-yang graduated from the Bible Institute of Oriental Mission located in Tokyo, Japan, came to Korea with Kaumman couple and Gilborne missionary, and founded the Joseon 야소교 Oriental Missionary Society Evangelical Preaching House at Gyeongseong Jongno yeomgok(currently Jongno 1-ga, Seoul) and began to preach the fourfold Gospel. Afterward, on march 11, 1911, the Bible Institute(forerunner of the Seoul Theological University) was founded and in september 1921, the church was organized with a change of name to the Joseon 야소교 Oriental Missionary Society Holiness Church. In April 1949, the name was changed to the Korean Christian Evangelical Holiness Church and in 2007, the 100th anniversary of the founding of denomination was celebrated, currently, it has developed into a representative denomination of protestant with active ministry of domestic and foreign missionary work.

 2. Fourfold Gospel

From the time of founding, four major titles of regeneration, holiness(sanctification), divine healing, the second coming have been emphasized and this is in accordance with the word, “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.(1Thessalonians 5:23, KJV)”

Regeneration

The way to be regenerated that the Lord Jesus taught to Nicodemus is indeed an introduction to Christianity and the only way to be qualified as a citizen of the kingdom of heaven. [Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God] (John 3:3b, KJV). Since regeneration is caused by spirit, it is the spiritual change belonging to the mystery, and when everyone repents their own sins and believes Jesus Christ who shed the blood of atonement on the cross, since new life is received through the work of the Holy Spirit and the whole fundamental revolution over the whole person’s spirit and personality, it is indeed the gospel of the kingdom of heaven.

Sanctification

Since this indicates the baptism of the Holy Spirit that a believer is to receive and in the Pentecost, the disciples experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that is, the grace of holiness(Acts 2:1-4) as promised by the Lord Jesus in the word, [For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence](Acts 1:5, KJV), we also lead all people to regeneration and lead the believers in their regeneration to experience the grace of holiness. [Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord](Hebrews 12:14).

Divine Healing

Since this indicates that believers are always kept healthy by the protection of God or that they get healed by praying to God when they were sick, this spiritual gift is a gospel to secure the health of our bodies. So, since the Lord Jesus declared that all believers are followed by a miracle(막16:17-18), it is a natural privilege to pray or impose hands to be healed. However, to believe in divine healing doesn’t necessarily deny medicines.

Second Coming

Since the center of the Old Testament prophecies is the birth of Christ and the center of the New Testament is Christ’s second coming, we believe in the second coming in the air(1Thess. 4:16-18) and the second coming on the ground(Acts 1:11). The book of revelation is a canon to reveal completely the second coming and recorded three times repeatedly the words [I will come soon] at the end of it(Rev. 22:7,12,20). The second coming is the element of a life in religious faith(1 Thes. 3:13), hope(1 Thes. 2: 19-20) and awakening(Matthew 24:44,25:13).
