About Us: 

Who are Christadelphians?  

Christadelphians 
are united by a common belief in the original Gospel, as taught throughout the Bible and clearly explained by the inspired apostles in the years immediately following the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  We seek to live in obedience to the God of Israel, to reflect His love and teaching in our lives, and we look fervently for His Son's return to this earth for "the restoration of all things" (Acts 3:21).  

The name Christadelphian is Greek, meaning "Brethren in Christ" (Colossians 1:2).

Christadelphians have no hierachy or paid ministry, but rely on the voluntary service of individuals willing to perform all work needed in each ecclesia, continuing prayerfully for God's blessing and guidance in our efforts. 

Christadelphians often refer to their local organizations as "ecclesias", a Greek word referring to the assembly or community of believers. This is intended to place the emphasis on the individuals and community rather than the building commonly associated with the word "church" which is how 'ecclesia' is translated in most Bibles.  


What do Christadelphians believe and teach?   

  • That the commandments and example provided by God's Son, Jesus Christ, must determine our behavior and attitudes in all aspects of our lives. (I John 2:3-4, Romans 2:7) 
  • That the Bible is the only current source of knowledge concerning God and His purposes.  It was wholly given by the unerring inspiration of God through its writers.  (II Peter 1:20-21, II Timothy 3:15-16)
  • That there is ONE God, the Father, dwelling in heaven, who created the heavens, the earth, and all that is therein. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 40:28))
  • That Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten of Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the lineage of King David. (Matthew 1:18, Romans 1:3-4, I John 5:20)  
  • That man is mortal, a creature of the dust. Immortality will be bestowed upon the worthy at the resurrection. (Genesis 2:7, Luke 20:35-37)
  • That man is unconscious in death, and the faithful depend upon resurrection for future life. (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, John 5:28-29))
  • That at the appearing of Christ, the responsible will "appear before the judgment seat of Christ to receive in body according to what they have done, whether it be good or bad." (2 Corinthians 5:10, Romans 14:10, I Peter 1:7) 
  • That the gospel concerns the "Kingdom of God" and the "Things concerning the Name of Jesus Christ."  An understanding and adherence to these principles, including baptism, are necessary for salvation. (Acts 8:12, Galatians 3:27-29)
  • That the Kingdom when established will be the kingdom of Israel restored, in the territory of the land promised to Abraham and his seed (Isaiah 9:7, Luke 1:31-33, Acts 15:16).

What to expect at a Christadelphian Sunday meeting:
  

Though there is some variation in service from one location to another, Christadelphians pattern services after the example provided in the New Testament.  This includes hymns, prayer, Bible reading, teaching, exhortation, doctrine, and taking unleavened bread and wine in rememberance of Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:24-25, Colossians 3:16, Hebrews 3:13, 1 Timothy 4:13)  

Sunday School begins at 9:30am with a group hymn, Bible reading, and prayer.  Sunday School breaks out from 9:45 - 10:30 into classes, age from 3 to adult.  All topics taught or discussed are based purely on Bible teaching.  Sunday School closes with a group hymn and prayer, followed by a 25-minute break.  

All ages join together for a Memorial Service beginnig at 11:00am.  This is a period of worship, prayer, reflection, and exhortation ultimately focused on the life and work of Jesus Christ, in preparation to take bread and wine in the same manner Jesus taught His disciples to do in rememberance of Him.  These activities are led by a different member each week on a rotating schedule.  We ask that only those who are baptized with a belief in and obedience to teachings of the Bible, as summarized in our Statement of Faithtake the bread and wine.  Our service concludes with hymn and prayer at roughly 12:00.  You are welcome to further discuss how the Bible teaches God's plan and purpose with this earth after services have ended!  

Please be assured that when visiting you will not be asked for a donation, or to register any personal information with us.  Christadelphians also meet during the week for additional bible study and encouragement.  Please contact us if you would like to attend a group bible class during the week or to have your interests individually addressed via individual or online correspondence.
