About the Christadelphians
Christadelphians adopted their name in the mid 1800s. It means “Brothers in Christ.” Christadelphians are found in countries all over the world. They are bound together by a common faith in the Gospel preached by Christ and his apostles in the first century. Christadelphians do not believe that any of their members, past or present, have received any special revelation direct from God. The Christadelphian faith rests squarely and solely on the Bible as the inspired Word of God.
Questions Others Have Asked ...
Q. What if everyone there knows more than I do?
A. The classes are paced in such a way as to make everyone feel comfortable. No one is ever put “on the spot.” Teaching segments are alternated between assumed knowledge and those who have no knowledge of the Scriptures.
Q. Why are you doing this?
A. Scarcely is the Bible read in today’s fast paced lifestyles. Our faith and belief in God motivates us to expound His message and Truth. We believe the Bible and what it teaches is right and good in directing our lives and families. In Christ’s day, the apostles spread the Gospel message and the commandments of God. We also feel compelled to make
known to all who would listen to the wonderful plan God has for the earth.
Q. Who is paying for the seminars?
A. An extremely important question, as very few things are free. All expenses are being absorbed by the Christadelphians in this area. No financial expectations will ever be expressed to you now or in the future.
Q. Will I be asked to be “saved” or “join” the Christadelphians at the end of the seminar?
A. No! You will not be pressured during or at the completion of the classes. Our hope is that the classes will encourage you to draw your own conclusions about God and His plan. The purpose of these classes is to equip you with the necessary tools to make your own decisions about what you have read and learned.
