The credal statement that the church is holy is derived from the fact that the church is rooted in Christ, the source of its holiness (Col. 2:6,7; I Cor. 1:30). He calls his people through the sanctifiyng power of the Holy Spirit to be holy and to grow in sanctification (d. I Thess. 4:7; I Pet. 1:15f.; 2:4, 9; Rom. 12:1; Eph. 6:12; 4:24; Lev. 11:44).
