    The Five Points of Calvinism

    Sometimes called the doctrines of grace and remembered in the English-speaking world with the mnemonic (memory aid) TULIP, they are a summary of the judgments (or canons) rendered by the Synod of Dort reflecting the  Calvinist understanding of the nature of divine grace and predestination as it relates to salvation.

    The Five Points of Calvinism are:

    • 1. Total depravity.
    • 2. Unconditional election.
    • 3. Limited atonement.
    • 4. Irresistible grace.
    • 5. Perseverance of the saints.

    Note: The Prayer Foundation - as an organization - does not take stands on most Christian doctrines not essential to Salvation.

    We therefore do not take a stand one way or the other in the historical Calvinist/Arminian debate, leaving it up to each individual Christian to decide this for himself or herself.  

    Some individuals involved in the ministries of The Prayer Foundation   believe one way, and some the other. ____________
