The Christadelphians are a worldwide community of believers in God, His son Jesus Christ, and their amazing promises to us all. Take a look below at some of these promises revealed through God’s words in the Bible.
- We base our 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)
- We all sin and fall short of the ideal shown in Jesus’ life. However, thanks to his death and resurrection we can choose to be associated with Jesus through baptism. We are then 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 ascended into heaven. He will return to the earth.
(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. Eventually God will be ‘all and in all’.
(1 Corinthians 15:24-28, Revelation 21:1-7)
- He will give a place in the Kingdom to those who belong to him.
(1 Corinthians 15:23, Revelation 20:12-13, 2 Timothy 4:1)
- Human nature has a tendency to be opposed to God. This slavery to Sin was overcome by Jesus. It is also personified as the Devil, so Jesus is described as having destroyed the devil.
(Romans 6:12-23, Hebrews 2:14, 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 immersion in water and a commitment to following 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)
