The Westminster Larger Catechism in modern English question number sixty-eight:

Q. 68. Are only the elect effectually called?

A. All the elect, and only the elect, are effectually called. Although others may be, and often are, outwardly called by the ministry of the Word and have some common operations of the Spirit, yet because of their willful neglect and contempt of the grace offered to them, they are justly left in their unbelief and never truly come to Jesus Christ.
