We are a group of approximately 100 people who meet in the Golden Grove area in Adelaide, South Australia, as part of the worldwide Christadelphian community. We believe that the Bible is the word of God and that it teaches us about God’s purpose with the earth. We would love to teach you about it too, so that you too can be a part of God’s wonderful future.
The Christadelphians are a small religious body who have deliberately attempted to get back to the faith and character of the early Christian church. We have been in existence for over 150 years. The name ‘Christadelphian’ means “Brother in Christ”.
Where Are Christadelphians Found?
We are located throughout the world. Like the early Christians, we meet in homes, rented rooms, and in some cases, our own halls. (Acts 1:13; 2:46; 18:7; 19:9; 28:30)
How Are Christadelphians Organized?
We are a lay community patterned after first century Christianity. Members of each congregation are addressed as “Brother” and “Sister”, and all have an equal joint responsibility for the welfare of the church. A strong common belief binds our Brotherhood together.
(Matthew 23:8-12; Romans 12:4-6; 16:1; 1 Corinthians 12:4-27; Galatians 3:28)
We believe that the Bible is God’s only revealed message to mankind, given to bring responsive individuals to the obedience of faith. The Bible is our only authority, and we teach that it should be read prayerfully and with care at every opportunity.
“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7 KJV
God’s Way of salvation gives effective direction to our lives. We try to rely fully upon God and develop a faith that is active in prayer and good works. At the same time, however, we recognise that salvation is by grace. (1 Corinthians 1:3-11; 1 Peter 2:1-5; 2 Peter 1:5-11; James 2:17,5:16; Ephesians 2:5-10)
With God’s help, we seek to please and obey Him every day, striving to imitate Christ who faithfully obeyed his Father and unselfishly gave himself for mankind.(Philippians 2:13, 4:13; Ephesians 3:20; Philippians 2:1-5; Rom 12:1-2; Ephesians 5:1-2)
We therefore endeavour to be enthusiastic in work, loyal in marriage, generous in giving, dedicated in preaching, cheerful in living, and happy in our God. (Ephesians 6:6-8; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; 2 Corinthians 9; 2 Timothy 4:1-5; John 16:33; Matthew 5:1-16; Philippians 4:4-7)
