1689 LBC on Perseverance

London Baptist Confession of 1689

2. "This perseverance of the saints depends not upon their own free will, but upon the 1) immutability of the decree of election, flowing from the 2) free and unchangeable love of God the Father, upon 3) the efficacy of the merit and intercession of Jesus Christ and 4) union with him, 5) the oath of God, 6) the abiding of his Spirit, and 7) the seed of God within them, and 8) the nature of the covenant of grace; from all which ariseth also the certainty and infallibility thereof." (Chapter 17. - The Perseverance of the Saints)
