F. H. KERFOOT, 1847-1901, A SOUTHERN BAPTIST THEOLOGIAN AND PASTOR, WROTE:

"NEARLY ALL BAPTISTS BELIEVE WHAT ARE USUALLY TERMED THE 'DOCTRINES OF GRACE': THE ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY AND FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD; HIS ETERNAL AND UNCHANGEABLE PURPOSES OR DECREES; THAT SALVATION IN ITS BEGINNING, CONTINUANCE AND COMPLETION, IS GOD'S FREE GIFT; THAT, IN CHRIST, WE ARE ELECTED OR CHOSEN, PERSONALLY OR INDIVIDUALLY, FROM ETERNITY, SAVED AND CALLED OUT FROM THE WORLD, NOT ACCORDING TO OUR WORKS, BUT ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE, THROUGH THE SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT AND BELIEF OF THE TRUTH
