The Doctrines of Grace
(1) Total Depravity: man (a) is guilty of Adam’s first sin, (b) desperately corrupted his entire being in Adam, and
     (c) is wholly unable to do anything that pleases God (
Rom. 3:10-12; 5:12; 8:7-8; 1 Cor. 2:14; 15:21-22;
    
Ps. 51:3; 58:3; Eph. 2:1-3; 4:17-19; Isa. 64:6; Gen. 6:5; Jer. 17:9).

(2) Unconditional Election:
God in eternity past freely chose a specific number of people to become recipients
     of His saving grace, not because of any foreknown choices or merits but because He was sovereignly pleased
     to do so (
Eph. 1:3-11; John 6:38-39; 12:37-40; 15:16; 17:24; Rom. 8:29-30; 9:10-18; 11:5; 2 Thess. 2:13;
     Matt. 11:25-26
; Acts 13:48).

(3) Definite
(or limited) Atonement: Christ’s penal substitutionary sacrifice is fully efficacious for the particular
     people whom God freely and sovereignly elected to salvation (
Matt. 1:20-21; 1 Tim. 1:15; Mark 10:45;
    
Gal. 3:13; 1 John 4:10; Acts 20:28; Isa. 53:8; John 10:11).

(4) Irresistible Grace:
the special inward call, whereby the Holy Spirit regenerates and enables individuals to
     come to Christ, invincibly secures the salvation of the elect (
John 3:5-8; 6:44, 65; 10:3; Ezek. 36:26-27;
    
Acts 5:30-31; 16:14; 2 Cor. 3:6; 4:6; 2 Tim. 1:9; 2:24-25; Eph. 2:8-9; Phil. 1:29).

(5) Perseverance of the Saints:
God preserves to the end all those who are saved and those who persevere to
     the end are truly saved (
John 6:37-39; 10:27-30; Phil. 1:6; 2:12-13; 1 John 2:19; 5:13; Rom. 8:29-32;
    
Luke 22:31-32; Heb. 3:14, 7:25; Eph. 1:13-14; Matt. 10:22).
