The Christadelphians

03/03/2012

This website contains content written by Christadlephians. Many people have not heard of Christadelphians and do not know what we stand for. This post will hopefully shed some light on who we are and what we believe.

Who are the Christadelphians?

In a nutshell we are a Bible based community holding a distinct belief in the gospel as held by first century followers of Jesus Christ. Our community started about 160 years ago by people who searched their Bibles and concluded that the mainstream Churches were not preaching according to the Bible’s teachings and had in fact lost the truth. The community has continued ever since. We are all individuals who come from all walks of life but are bound in our common faith in the Bible and in the gospel as preached in the Bible.

What do Christadelphians believe?

We believe in the gospel message as preached by Christ and his followers in the 1st Century. This message consisted of two parts:

  • The things concerning the kingdom of God
  • Those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ

This two part message is mentioned in Acts 8:12 and Acts 28:30-31

  • Jesus Christ is God’s son Matt 3:16-17, Luke 1:35
  • The Holy Spirit is God’s power Acts 10:38, Luke 1:35

  • The Kingdom of God existed in the past (known as the Kingdom of Israel) and will be restored in the future on the earth Luke 1:32-33, Zech 2:12
  • Man is mortal and dies because of sin Rom 5:12, James 1:14-15
  • Jesus Christ was a man who bore human nature, was tempted in all points in the same way as we are, yet did not sin and died as a representative for us Heb 2:14, 4:15, John 1:29
  • God raised Jesus from the dead and he is now immortal sitting at God’s right hand in heaven Acts 2:24, Eph 1:20-21, 1 Cor 15:17
