The answer of the Canons of the Synod of Dort in 1618, under five heads, has been synthesized into the English acrostic, TULIP, as follows:
  1. Total Inability (or Total Depravity) 
  2. Unconditional Election 
  3. Limited Atonement 
  4. Irresistible Grace 
  5. Perseverance of the Saints 
* See “Canones Synodi Dordrechtanae (Canons of the Synod of Dort)” in The Creeds of Christendom, with a History and Critical Notes; Volume III, Philip Schaff, 1877, pp. 581-597
