 ====== Our Beliefs ====== ====== Our Beliefs ======
 +The Christadelphians are a world-wide community established over 150 years ago. We are bound together by a common faith in the Gospel as preached by the Lord Jesus Christ and his apostles in the first century.
-The Christadelphians ​are a small worldwide community of Christian believers whose main aim is to discover, obey and witness to the truth that God has left on record for all mankind. "Let the Bible speak for itself"​ could well be our slogan, as this is precisely what we set out to do. Our beliefs are a direct result of this: +These are some of our beliefs. 
- +  * That there is one God, the Creator ​of the heavens and the earth 
-This is a very condensed version ​of our beliefs. +  * That Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born to Mary through ​the Holy Spirit 
- +  * That Jesus died for the sins of the world, and that God raised him from the dead to bring salvation and eternal life to those who have faith in him 
-  * That God is all-powerfulall-knowing and the creator ​of the universe +  * That this salvation cannot be earnedbut is Godfree gift.  Salvation is by Gods grace alone, through faith in Jesus Christ 
-  * That Jesus Christ is his son, whose death brought about the means to the fulfilment of God's purpose on earth. +  * That Jesus will return ​to the earth, ​and replace man’s rule with Goduniversal Kingdom ​on earth 
-  * That Jesus will return to the earth to establish a kingdom ​of perfection for his Fatherof which we can be members. +  * That these truths ​are to be found in the Bible, God’s inspired and infallible ​revelation to mankind
-  * That man is inherently sinful ​and in need of salvation from God. +
-  * That human naturetherefore, works against ​God'will and so we can only be saved by God's grace and forgiveness. +
-  * That when Jesus returns ​to the earth, ​all those who are responsible will be raised from the dead to be judged as worthy or not of a place in God'kingdom ​on earth. +
-  * That we should watch carefully the things that are happening ​in the worldso that Jesus' return does not take us by surprise. +
-  * That believers should live a morally upstanding life before ​God, standing apart from the lax values of modern society. +
-  * That no-one else has authority - only God through the pages of his word, which, now being completed, is his source of revelation to mankind+
-  * That the God's Holy Spirit controls and sustains everything. +
-  * That man has free will to choose whether to pursue God's offers of salvation or not. +
-  * That the nation of Israel is still very important in God's plan for the earth.  +
