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.
For more detail of what Christadelphians believe and teach, please see the Christadelphian Statement of Faith (unamended).
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 remembrance 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 beginning 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 remembrance 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 Faith, take 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!
