The members of a congregation had the right to elect a minister and, if necessary, to vote for his dismissal (Treatise On the right and authority of a Christian assembly or congregation to judge all doctrines and to call, install and dismiss teachers, as testified in Scripture; 1523). [148] Calvin strengthened this basically democratic approach by including elected laymen ( church elders, presbyters ) in his representative church government.

Most Protestants teach that one is either saved or likely permanently lost (however many seem to put babies, mentally challenged people, and very young children in the category that they are saved without first accepting Jesus Christ--an unbiblical concept).
