Pastor David considers the doctrine of the Effectual Calling of the new birth from Article of Faith 6. God borns again His children by His sovereignty with no aid of man, and the timing of the new birth is determined solely by the purpose and timing of God alone. The voice of the Son of God calls unto sinners who are dead in sins, and all of those who receive this holy calling will respond in life in the new birth. The calling of God in the new birth is perfectly effective and effectual to accomplish its intended purpose, to give the sinner life in regeneration.
