What Christadelphians Believe
  Christadelphians are a community of believers found all over the world and although their name has only been used in the last 150 years, their beliefs were those preached by the Apostles, 2000 years ago. The name 'Christadelphian' means; 'Brothers in Christ' describ- ing both men and women who believe 'things concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ'. In particular Christadelphians believe in the following;
1
Bible - That the Bible is the only true message from God and was entirely given by him. It is sufficient to teach men and women the way of life, being a self-revelation of the thoughts of God. It is in part literal and part symbolic - as defined by the text and providing a logical and reasonable explanation of creation and life upon planet earth. Christadelphians do not believe that any of their members, past or present, have received any special revelation direct from God. They base their faith solely on the Bible as the Word of God. ".. all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness". (2 Timothy 3:16) and that "holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit". (2 Peter 1:21)
2
God - That God exists as a being with power and personality. That he has a specific location in heaven with the angels his messengers. That he is the creator of the heavens, the earth, and all life on the earth including humankind. That he is the father of Jesus Christ and that he has a purpose for his Son to reign on earth at a time yet future.
God is all powerful, he does not share his power with any sinful being who is opposed to his ways. (Satan is a term which refers to 'adversary' or 'an enemy' and can refer to good and bad people, figuratively, the terms the devil and satan can refer to sin and the flesh).
