TULIP 586 x 352

TULIP is an acronym that summarizes doctrinal positions held by reformed Christians. Those who affirm TULIP are often called "5-point Calvinists." These positions are:

     T - Total depravity

     U - Unconditional election

     L - Limited atonement

     I - Irresistable grace

     P - Perseverance of the saints
