Who are the Christadelphians?
The name "Christadelphians" means "brethren
in Christ". It has been used to distinguish
the community for more than 120 years
Christadelphians are a religious group who base
our beliefs wholly on the Bible, regarding it
as fully inspired by God, and hence believe it
is error free. The name "Christadelphian"
was first used in the mid-1800s, but we believe
that there have been people who share our beliefs
throughout history. We are confidently waiting
for Christ to return to earth when he will set
up the Kingdom of God.
NYC Preaching Outreach is an organization operated
by the three Christadelphian ecclesias in New
York City- Brooklyn, Manhattan and South Ozone
Park. We operate Bible seminars, special Gospel
talks, deeper Bible studies; and also operate
the This Is Your Bible Public Access TV program.
Our beliefs are:
1 The Bible – both Old and New
Testaments, is the only source of knowledge about
God and his purpose with mankind. It is inspired
by God and is a true account, apart from errors
of translation and transcription.
2 God – is the only, all-powerful,
all-knowing and invisible but everywhere- present
Creator of the Universe. He is wholly good, true,
loving and compassionate, but will not tolerate
any challenge to his authority.
3 The Holy Spirit – is the power
by which God works.
4 Jesus Christ – is the only
son of God, born of the virgin Mary by the Holy
Spirit. He was a human being, subject to all the
same sufferings and temptations as others. But
he was the only one who overcame his human nature
by submitting completely to his Father’s will,
and never sinned. He reflected the character of
his Father, showing his glory.
He willingly allowed himself to be crucified;
God raised him bodily from the dead, and he is
now immortal, free from the temptation to sin,
the first of God’s new creation.
He ascended to heaven, where he is now the only
mediator between human beings and God, when they
pray for help and forgiveness.
He will return to the earth to raise the dead
and judge all whom God considers to be responsible
to judgment. Those rejected will be destroyed,
and those accepted will be blessed with immortality
like the Lord Jesus.
He will then set up the Kingdom of God in which
he will be king, ruling the whole world from Jerusalem,
until God’s purpose is fulfilled, all evil destroyed
and the earth is at peace, full of the glory of
5 Human beings – were created
in the image of God, very good, but given free
will to choose whether to obey him. They chose
to disobey, thereby bringing on themselves and
their descendants the punishment of death. But
God, in his mercy, provided a way of escape from
eternal death through faith in Christ Jesus.
6 Baptism – is the way for people
to show that they understand their need to be
saved from sin and death, and that they believe
their sins will be forgiven through Jesus. It
is a symbol of death and resurrection, being a
complete immersion in water, and the start of
a new life.
7 The Christian life – is one
in which believers, as brothers and sisters in
Christ, try to show their love for God and the
Lord Jesus by loving each other, praying, and
breaking bread together in celebration of Christ’s
death and resurrection. It involves trying to
reflect the character of the Lord Jesus in words
and actions to other people so that they too will
8 The devil/Satan - is the evil
principle in human nature, which scriptures declare
as “sin in the flesh.” The devil/satan is not
a supernatural being or a fallen angel. The devil/satan
can be understood in Scripture as human, holy
angelic beings, political or a religious adversary,
or even God Himself acts as an adversary or Satan
in various cases. The context will usually determine
the adversary the devil/satan. Demons in Scripture
refer to idols or mental illness and disease.
9 Hell (Hebrew: sheol,
Greek: hades) - is the name for the grave
or the unconscious state into which death resolves
all mortal men. It is not a place of fiery torment
for immortal souls.
10 The Kingdom of God – is to
be established on the earth at the end of the
tribulation where Messiah will rule and reign.
This is the hope of the Christian and the Gospel
which Messiah preached. Entrance into the Kingdom
will be through resurrection or transformation.
No one goes to heaven when they die. Our hope
is to be with Him on this earth living life eternal
with Him serving God and each other.
