Christadelphians base their faith purely on what the Bible teaches.
It is God's message to us, inspired entirely by Him.
(2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 1:1, 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe that there is only one God, who made the world and has a special purpose for it.
(1 Timothy 6:15-16, Isaiah 43:10-12, Romans 16:27)
The Holy Spirit is God's power, by which He carries out His will and which can work in and through us.
(Matthew 1:18, Romans 8:26-27)
Jesus is the Son of God, but also the Son of Man as he was born to
Mary. He was not physically part of God but was human - like us.
(Luke 22:70, Matthew 1:18, 16:13-16, 1 Timothy 2:5)
We believe that God, in love, provided Jesus who overcame every temptation to sin. Because of this, after dying on the cross he rose to life again.
(Acts 2:22-24, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Because of this, although we all sin and fall short of the ideal shown in Jesus' life, thanks to his death and resurrection we can be reconciled to God and share in His promises.
(Romans 3:22-26, Romans 5:8-10, 1 Peter 3:18)
After his death and resurrection, Jesus rose into heaven - but will return.
(Acts 1:9-11, John 21:22)
When he returns he will set up God's glorious Kingdom, centred in
Jerusalem but covering the whole world, and God will be 'all and in
(1 Corinthians 15:24-28, Revelation 21:1-7)
We believe he will give a place in the Kingdom to those who have been faithful to him.
(Revelation 20:12-13, 2 Timothy 4:1)
We also believe that the devil is not a supernatural being but is another name for sin and temptation.
(1 Chronicles 21:1, 2 Samuel 24:1, James 1:13-15)
When someone dies they cease to exist. The only hope of life is by resurrection at Christ's return.
(Psalm 89:48, John 5:28-29)
Repentance and baptism into Jesus by full immersion in water and trying to follow the Bible's teachings are necessary for salvation.
(Mark 16:15-16, Acts 2:38, 1 John 5:3)
All these promises to us are possible thanks to the perfect love of
God, through His son, Jesus Christ.
(Romans 8:38-39, 1 John 4:10)
