After six months, the Synod of Dort ends with a confirmation of the authority of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and around 200 Arminian clergy are deprived of their offices. Arminianism is declared a heresy.

The Synod of Dort also establishes the basic points of Reformed Christian doctrine: total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement (Christ's atoning work is only for the elect, not the unregenerate world), irresistible / irrevocable grace, and the perseverance of the saints. These will come to be known as the Five Points of Calvinism.
