We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back to the earth to take control of our world as the Bible clearly states:
And while they (the disciples) looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."
"For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with his angels, and then he will reward each according to his works."
The Christadelphians, are a community of Bible believing people, who aim to live by faith in Jesus Christ, according to the teaching of his followers from the first century AD, finding their instruction in a wholly inspired Bible. Central to Christadelphian belief is that Christ will soon return to the Earth to establish the Kingdom of God and grant eternal life to his people - those who have tried to follow him and God.
"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began."
You will see that all Christadelphian beliefs are firmly based in the Bible.
The fundamental Christadelphian beliefs are:
- The Bible is God's word and the only message from him. It is without error, except for copying and translation errors. (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 1:1. See also The Bible, Why We Believe the Bible, and Alleged Biblical Errors.)
- There is only one God - the Father. The Holy Spirit is God's power. (John 17:3, Luke 1:35, Deuteronomy 6:4. See also God, Jesus and the Crucifixion, and The Trinity.)
- Jesus is the Son of God, and a human being, through his mother Mary. (Luke 1:30-31, John 3:18. See also God, Jesus and the Crucifixion, and The Trinity)
- Man is mortal, having no existence when dead. (Psalm 6:5, Isaiah 38:18, Acts 2:29, 34)
- By living a sinless life, ending with his sacrificial death by crucifixion, Jesus has opened the way of salvation from death. (Hebrews 4:15; 1 Corinthians 5:7; 15:20-23; Galatians 3:27-29)
- Belief and baptism are essential steps to salvation. (Mark 16:16. See also Baptism and Salvation.)
- God raised his son Jesus Christ from the grave. Jesus is currently in Heaven, on God's right hand. He will soon return. (Acts 10:40; Romans 8:34; Acts 1:11)
- When Jesus returns, he will raise his "sleeping" followers from death and grant immortality to the faithful who have tried to live by God's precepts. (1 Corinthians 15:20-22)
- His followers will help him to rule, bringing justice, righteousness and peace to the whole world - the Kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 15:23-26)
