Christadelphians are a worldwide community of men and women who try to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. They are united by a shared faith based on the holy scriptures, and they look forward eagerly to the completion of God’s plan for the world and mankind – the setting up of God’s kingdom when Jesus returns to the earth as God’s appointed King.
This website reflects our determination to bring the good news of the coming Kingdom of God to those around us and to encourage Bible reading.
A little history
From the days of the first century apostles there have been groups of believers with the same convictions as ourselves. Always they have been a minority, often persecuted for rejecting the doctrines of the established churches, preferring to hold fast to Bible teaching.
In the 19th century one such group was required by the authorities to provide itself a name for registration purposes, and so the name Christadelphian was formed from the Greek words signifying brothers in Christ. In some other countries, the name has been translated into the local tongue, for example ‘Broeders in Christus’ in the Netherlands.
Today there are congregations in many countries of the world, although nowhere very numerous, and we all share the same beliefs. In some places we meet in our own buildings, in others in hired halls, or even in our own homes. We meet, usually weekly, to share bread and wine in remembrance of the sacrifice of Christ; we hold public Bible talks explaining the Bible message and we hold Bible Classes where we study God’s word in greater depth.
