What Christadelphians Believe

You won't find many of these doctrines preached by many mainstream Christian churches, but you will find them in God's Word if you read it with a properly open mind:

  • The Bible is God's inspired message to mankind, and it contains all we need to know about God's purpose with this earth.
  • There is only one God, who is immortal and all powerful.
  • The Holy Spirit is God's own special power.
  • Jesus Christ is the son of God.
  • Although Jesus Christ was also human, being born of Mary, he overcame all temptations and died as a sacrifice for sin.
  • Because of Christ's sinless life, God raised him from the dead and gave him everlasting life.
  • Jesus is now in heaven, awaiting the appointed day when he will return to the Earth to establish God's Kingdom on the Earth.
  • The nation of Israel will return to their own land in preparation to receive their King - the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The devil is not some superhuman being opposing God, who is responsible for all the evil. It is the Bible expression representing sin.
  • Man's greatest enemy is sin. It will be controlled in the Kingdom Age, when Jesus rules from Jerusalem.
  • Man is mortal - when he dies he ceases to exist. The only hope of life after death is by resurrection when Jesus Christ returns.
  • Faithful servants of Jesus Christ will assist him to bring peace, righteousness and justice to a sinful world.
  • A true Christian must repent and show that he or she wishes to be associated with Jesus and his sacrifice. The only way to do this is by baptism - a complete immersion in water.
  • A Christian must live a life of faith and obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.
