Christadelphians Believe That…
Man: Man is mortal and a sinner before God. His whole being is prone to sin, and the punishment for sin is death- real death, the end of all life. (Job 4:17; Psa 146:4; Eccl 9:1-6; Jer 17:9; Mk 7:21-23; Rom 3:23, 6:23)
Sacrifice of Christ: Though he committed no sin, it was necessary for Jesus to die to show the righteousness of God and to redeem those who receive this sacrifice by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority on earth and in heaven, and set him as mediator in heaven between God and man. (Acts 2:23-36; Rom 3:21-26; Eph 1:19-23; 1Tim 2:5; Heb 4:14-16)
Return of Christ: Jesus will return to the earth soon. He will then raise many of the dead, judge them with the living, and give his faithful followers everlasting life in God’s Kingdom. (Dan 12:1-2; Mt 25:31-34; Lk 21:20-31: Jn 5:28-29: 2 Tim 4:1; Rev 22:12)
Kingdom of God: The Kingdom of God will be established on earth with Jesus as King. His capital will be Jerusalem, his dominion will be worldwide, and his government will bring righteousness and peace without end. (Lk 4:43; Mt 4:23, 6:9-10; Jer 3:17)
The Promises: The Gospel is inseparable from the promises which God made to Abraham and David in the Old Testament times. These promises find their fulfilment in Jesus Christ. (Gen 13:14-17, 22:15-18; Gal 3:6-9, 26-29)
The Way of Salvation: The way to enter the Kingdom of God is by faith. This involves belief in His Word, the Bible, and obedience to its requirements that men and women confess their sins, repent, be baptised and follow Jesus faithfully. Ultimately, it is only by God’s grace through Jesus that we are saved, not by anything we do. (Mt 16:24-27; Mk 16:16; Jn 3:3-5; Acts 2:37; Eph 2:4-5; 1 Thes 2:13; 2 Tim 3:14-17; Heb 11:6)
