“The Holy Spirit gives life” (John 6:63). The work of the Spirit in tandem with Christ brings life to the Christian disciple, and grows that life into a full life, as described in Ezekiel 37:14: “I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it, declares the LORD.”

Scripture reveals that orthodoxy is adherence to the Gospel, and that this Gospel is found in the very person and work of Jesus Christ.

If orthodoxy is the Gospel, then Spiritual Orthodoxy is the Gospel vivified in the life of the believer by the Holy Spirit.
