Our Biblical hope
Christadelphians believe that the entire Bible, consisting of both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. Within the Bible, we find His plan and purpose in creating the earth and mankind who inhabits it. The Bible gives the answer to both mankind’s origin and destiny.
God has graciously put in motion a plan of salvation, a means of escape from the clutches of death which plagues all mankind. Without this Hope, we all will die eternally.
This Hope of salvation which God offers depends on a belief and acceptance of His requirements which He has explained in His Word, the Bible. This is the “Good News,” or the gospel message. The Bible says the gospel is “the things concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ” (Acts 8:12).
Christadelphians believe that a proper Scriptural understanding of these principles and a public confession of them, through baptism into the name of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, is necessary to attain the Hope of salvation.
We look forward with great anticipation to the personal, literal return of Jesus Christ to the earth. He will raise to life baptized believers of all ages and judge them according to their works, whether good or bad. Those judged faithful will be given eternal life (immortality) in God’s Kingdom upon the earth. God promised this kingdom to Abraham and David by covenant, and the kingdom will be a blessing to the whole earth. Jesus Christ will rule as King.
