OUR BELIEFS

CHRISTADELPHIAN BELIEFS

Christadelphians believe the Bible is God’s inspired Word. The Bible reveals God to be the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He dwells in the heavens in unapproachable light. He is all powerful, all wise, a God of love, mercy, holiness, righteousness, and truth. Jesus Christ was the only begotten Son of God, who was born of the virgin Mary, tempted, as we are, but remained perfect and sinless. He died and was resurrected and has ascended to his Father in heaven, where he sits on the right hand of God.

Jesus conquered sin, through a sinless life. The death of Jesus was an act of obedience to God by which we may have forgiveness of our sins. He is our Saviour who will return to the earth, to judge the living and the dead, and to establish upon the earth a universal and abiding Kingdom.
