This statement contains the foundation principles of what Christadelphians believe, it is not used in place of the Bible – only as a summary of the Bible’s teachings. It outlines the gospel message and the true Bible teaching of the plan of God and how we can be associated with it.
It is through a belief in these foundation principles (the gospel), their associated doctrines and baptism that one becomes “in” Christ, a brother or sister of Christ, an heir to the promises of old and in fellowship with other fellow believers, God and Jesus Christ.
“That at that time (before baptism) ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world”. Ephesians 2:12
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned”. Mark 16:15-16
“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now”. Philippians 1:3-5
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”. 2 Peter 1:3-4
“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel“. Philippians 1:27
“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”. Galatians 3:29
