From all different walks of life, we are bound by a common belief that Jesus is coming back to set up Gods Kingdom on this earth bringing peace to a world full of trouble. We all feel connected by the same belief and the same hope, united under Christ, not directed by one governing council, but by the Bible, the Book of books that gives us effective direction in our lives. And with God’s help, we try to please and obey Him every day, striving to imitate Jesus Christ who faithfully obeyed his Father perfectly. Therefore, we endeavour to be enthusiastic in work, loyal in marriage, generous in giving, compassionate to others, dedicated to sharing our hope and happy in our God, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah our Strength.
We are convinced that the Bible has the power to change anybody. We also think Christians should be following Jesus‘ teachings and have other people come to know the truth, Jesus as well as his heavenly Father and the Words that Father, the God of gods has given the world.
From Colossians chapter 1 verse 2 which reads,
‘To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.’
our name Christadelphians was taken. ‘Christadelphian’ simply means brother or brethren in Christ. Delphos meaning brother or Adelphos being the ‘brother of’. Kristos or ‘Christos’ being the saviour or messiah, pointing to rabbi Jeshua, the man from Nazareth who became better known as Jesus Christ.
As followers of Christ we do come together regularly to study the Bible and to meet as brothers and sisters in union with Christ. Together we form independent ecclesiae or church-communities. ‘Ecclesia’ is the New Testament Greek word usually translated as ‘church’ in our English Bibles. Over the years, a church has come to refer more to a building rather than the people. Since the building in which we meet has no relevance to our salvation (Acts 7:48-50), we call ourselves an ‘ecclesia’, that is, a people called out to serve God. As the Bible states in Ephesians 2:18-22, God’s building is His people. We want to be part of the Body of Christ, being children of God, being His people and not people of the world.
