Effectual Call

The effectual call of God in salvation occurs when God sovereignly calls His elect from darkness into light through the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This call is effectual in that God's call always results in the salvation of those being called.

Supporting Scriptures:

  • Jude 1 - "...To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ" - Those He calls are also sanctified and preserved in faith.
  • 2 Tim. 1:9 - "who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,"
  • Romans 8:28 - "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."
