Our Beliefs

What are Christadelphians?

We are a Christian denomination, which developed in Britain and North America in the 19th century, we call our congregations 'ecclesias'.(Click here for Wikipedia Christadelphian info).
There are three Christadelphian ecclesias in Bristol, these are at Brislington, Downend and Horfield. We hold many classes, presentations and seminars in which we discuss the Bible, which we believe is the wholly inspired word of God.
Because of our continual reading and study of the Bible we are very concerned with events in the Middle East particularly those with regard to Israel.

We differ from the Church of England and other Christian bodies in several ways, Some important aspects & differences of our faith are as follows:

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God (not God in human form) and reject any aspect of a trinity.

  • We don't believe in any Supernatual Being called the Devil or Satan

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit (not Holy Ghost) was the power given by God at the time of the writing Bible to inspire and give understanding, nobody in the world today has the holy spirit.

  • We believe that Baptism is essential for a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, but strongly reject infant sprinkling/baptism (refered to as Christening)

  • We believe in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the Dead, his Ascension into Heaven and his Future Return to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth.
