During the late 1800s other evangelicals turned to holiness conferences. Concern for a "second blessing", "entire sanctification", or "Christian perfection" had always been a main tenet of Methodist revivalism. In the late nineteenth century, members of other religious communions came to share this concern. Holiness groups, such as the Church of the Nazarene, as well as "deeper life" conferences, urged believers to yield themselves to reliance on the Holy Spirit as a way to find "the victorious Christian life."
