Summary

What Christadelphians Believe, continued

Promises & Prophecies - That the Gospel was preached in the form of promises made to the Jewish Fathers. The seed of the woman described in the judgements of God to the serpent refer to Christ. Promises given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Jewish fathers, and to King David all ultimately refer to Christ and to believers 'in Christ'. The Old Testament contains this information together with teaching about Israel and the affairs of the world - particularly with reference to the time of the second coming of Christ. It is therefore important in providing us with this valuable information and should be read and studied.
Jesus Christ - That Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, who was an ordinary woman of human nature. Jesus did not pre-exist nor was he the second person of the trinity. He was the Son of God, conceived by the power of God but inheriting a human nature from his mother. He was tempted yet was sinless. He died on a cross as a sacrifice for sins, as our representative not as our substitute. He was raised from the grave and given immortality by his father. He ascended to heaven where to the right hand of the father until he returns to the earth at his second coming. He is now the only mediator between men and God, prayer is made through Jesus to the father and forgiveness is obtained from him. There is therefore no need of human priests and pastors - all male baptised believers can pray and lead worship. Christ is our Priest and him alone.
