The Bible is accepted as one of the greatest masterpieces of the world's literature. It is quite unrivalled by any other work, in any language, or from any age. The grandeur of the opening chapters of Genesis and of John's gospel, the moving poetry of the Psalms, the fiery denunciations of the Hebrew prophets, the compelling records of the life and work of Jesus, and the apocalyptic mysteries of the book of Revelation. All these serve together to set the Bible in a class of its own. It is quite unrivalled by any other work, in any language or from any age. But it is more than this: the Bible claims to be the word of God.

What we Believe

The Christadelphians are a small worldwide community of Christian believers whose main aim is to discover, obey and witness to the truth that God has left on record for all mankind. "Let the Bible speak for itself" could well be our slogan, as this is precisely what we set out to do.  Our beliefs are a direct result of this:

  • That God is all-powerful, all-knowing and the creator of the universe
  • That Jesus Christ is his son, whose death brought about the means to the fulfilment of God's purpose on earth.
  • That Jesus will return to the earth to establish a kingdom of perfection for his Father, of which we can be members.
  • That man is inherently sinful and in need of salvation from God.
  • That human nature, therefore, works against God's will and so we can only be saved by God's grace and forgiveness.
  • That when Jesus returns to the earth, all those who are responsible will be raised from the dead to be judged as worthy or not of a place in God's kingdom on earth.
  • That we should watch carefully the things that are happening in the world, so that Jesus' return does not take us by surprise.
  • That believers should live a morally upstanding life before God, standing apart from the lax values of modern society.
  • That no-one else has authority - only God through the pages of his word, which, now being completed, is his source of revelation to mankind.
  • That the God's Holy Spirit controls and sustains everything.
  • That man has free will to choose whether to pursue God's offers of salvation or not.
  • That the nation of Israel is still very important in God's plan for the earth.

Obviously, this is a very condensed version of our beliefs. There are many opportunities on Christadelphian websites to explore them in more detail and for you to question the reasoning that leads to these conclusions.

You may prefer, however to contact us with a specific question. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
