Christadelphians believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, the Creator of the heavens and the Earth. The Bible tells us that God gave people free will, but their punishment for disobeying Him would be a life of difficulties before eventually dying. We all share the same sinful and mortal nature. But God also provided a way by which we can be forgiven – through the sinless life, sacrifice and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ.
God’s consistent message to us runs through all of the Bible. The Old Testament records God’s promises to the forefathers of the nation of Israel, pointing forward to Jesus. The New Testament describes the life and teachings of Jesus and the Gospel preached by his followers. But the message is the same from Genesis to Revelation. God’s plan is that Jesus will return to rule the Earth in peace and justice, and he will undo the damage done by humankind.
If we repent of our sinfulness, recognise our need for forgiveness and show our faith by baptism and trying to follow the example of Jesus, we can look forward in hope to eternal life in a peaceful, fair and perfected world.
