CHRISTADELPHIAN BELIEFS

The Christadelphians are a body of believers in Jesus Christ whose faith is based wholly on the Bible. The name ‘Christadelphian’ comes from two Greek words meaning ’brothers (and sisters) in Christ’ and was adopted in the 1860’s.

Our aim is to live by faith in Jesus Christ, according to his teaching and those of his followers from the first century AD.

We believe that those who follow Jesus and his apostles, looking for strength and forgiveness from God, may confidently place their hope in Christ’s return to the earth, when he will grant eternal life to his people and establish the long-awaited Kingdom of God here on earth.

Our community is united by a core ‘statement of faith’ which was originally written in 1866 by Robert Roberts and has been revised on several occasions since. The booklet (located left) addresses our accepted bible truth, doctrines to be rejected and the commandments of Christ with biblical references. We invite you to browse our statement of faith and contact us here if you have any queries regarding our tenets. Find our more about us by visiting the Christadelphian Auxiliary Lecturing League at thechristadelphians.org.uk.
