5 points of Arminianism

from “A Comparative Study of Church Bodies” by Pastor Rob Raasch

The Five Points of Arminianism
(Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal churches)

* 1.  God predestined people “in view of” their faith (conditional election). 

   2.  Jesus made atonement for all people (universal redemption)

* 3. Free will enables a person to cooperate in his conversion (i.e. decide to accept Christ)

“In order not to be condemned you must make a choice–you must choose to believe.” (Dr. Billy Graham)

“We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives.” (Dr. Bill Bright, CCC)

  4. Grace can be resisted.

  5. A believer may fall from grace.

 * = statements that contradict Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions
