What we believe
In a Christadelphian meeting you won't be emotionally pushed into conversion; Christadelphians put much more emphasis on reasoning from the Bible and a faith based on proven facts. Here are some of our key beliefs.
We believe in the gospel message as preached by Christ and his followers in the 1st Century.
This message consisted of two parts:
The things concerning the kingdom of God
Those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ
This two part message is mentioned in Acts 8:12 and Acts 28:30-31
The Bible is the only true message from God and it was given entirely by Him.
