What Do Christadelphians Believe & Teach?



God
There is only one eternal, immortal God who created the universe. Jesus Christ is His only begotten Son, and the Holy Spirit is His Power.  (Isa 45:5; Lk 24:49; Eph 4:6; 1Tim 1:17)

Jesus Christ
In His love, God sent the man Jesus into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him and are baptised will not perish, but have everlasting life. (Mt 1:21; Jn 3:16)

The Bible
We believe the Bible is God's only revealed message to mankind, given to bring individuals to belief and faith in God and His son. The Bible is our only authority and should be read prayerfully with care. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 16:25-26; John 17:17)

Man
Man is mortal and responsible for his own sin before God. The ultimate consequence of sin is death - real death, the end of all life.  (Job 4:17; Psa 146:4; Eccles 9:1-6; Jer 17:9; Mk 7:21-23; Rom 3:23, 6:23)

Hope
The only hope of life after death is the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in God’s Kingdom on Earth.  (Eph 1:18, 4:4-6; Jer 29:11-14; Rom 8:23-39

The Promises
The Gospel is inseparable from the promises which God made to men like Abraham and David in the Old Testament times. These promises are fulfilled in Jesus Christ. (Gen 13:14-17, 22:15-18; Gal 3:6-9, 26-29)

Sacrifice of Christ
Jesus was sinless.  He died to show God's righteousness and to save those who receive this sacrifice by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority in heaven and on earth, and set him as mediator between God and man. (Acts 2:23-36; Rom 3:21-26; Eph 1:19-23; 1Tim 2:5; Heb 4:14-16)

Return of Christ and Resurrection
Jesus will return to the earth soon. Then he will raise many of the dead, judge them with the living, and give everlasting life to the faithful in the Kingdom of God. (Dan 12:1-2; Mt 25:31-34; Lk 21:20-31: Jn 5:28-29: 2 Tim 4:1; Rev 22:12)

Kingdom of God
The Kingdom of God, which once existed in Israel, will be established on earth.  Jesus Christ will be King in Jerusalem.  His rule will be worldwide, and his government will bring  eternal righteousness and peace. (Lk 4:43; Mt 4:23, 6:9-10; Jer 3:17)

The Way of Salvation
The way to enter the Kingdom of God is by God's grace and our faith. This involves belief in the Bible and obedience to its requirements - namely that men and women must confess their sins, repent, be baptized and follow Jesus faithfully. Ultimately, it is only by God's grace through Jesus that we are saved, not by anything we do. (Mt 16:24-27; Mk 16:16; Jn 3:3-5; Acts 2:37; Eph 2:4-5; 1 Thes 2:13; 2 Tim 3:14-17; Heb 11:6)

Love
God’s love for us is at the root of his whole plan. Love should also be a major part of our reaction to His message. (Mt 22:34-40; Jn 3:16, 13:34; 1 Cor 13:4-13: 1 Jn 4:7-21)
