Irv and Elsie believe in the critical importance of holiness. The Bible commands us to "worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness" (Psalm 96:9). Holiness is the central attribute of God. "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty" (Isaiah 6:3). Irv and Elsie have committed their lives to purifying the church, Christ's Bride, that she might be prepared for her Bridegroom on the day that He returns to take her home (Revelation 19:7, 8).

The Power of Purity: God's Design for Sexuality in a Sex-Saturated World  speaks to the issue of what does it mean to be pure, why should we be pure, and who needs to be pure. It is both scripturally sound and practical.

The Purity of the Bride of Christ: Calling the Church to God's Standard for Sexuality answers the key question of how to be pure and specifically, how can the church be pure. Like The Power of Purity, The Purity of the Bride of Christ is biblical and practical.
