Arminianism holds to the following beliefs: Humans are naturally unable to make any effort towards salvation Salvation is possible by grace alone Works of human effort cannot cause or contribute to salvation God’s election is conditional on faith in Jesus Jesus’ atonement was for all people God allows his grace to be resisted by those unwilling to believe Salvation can be lost, as continued salvation is conditional upon continued faith This is 100% different in the Armenian Church and that is why Armenians are protesting against being perceived as such.

Holy Friday Holy Friday (In Armenia, High Friday: Ավագ Ուրբաթ) is the most solemn and sad day for Christians. It is likely that the name “Good Friday” came from the earlier English name, “Godes Friday,” meaning “God’s Friday.”
