What we believe
What we as ecclesia believe
As Christadelphians we are Brothers in Christ. As brothers and sisters in Christ we love our lord Jesus Christ. We are grateful that he wanted to suffer for us and die. We believe that God had given him strength to conjure and has raised him from the death. Such as Jesus believed in his Father and praised Him, we also believe in the One True Creator of heaven and earth, who wished to lead His people and gave the promise to Abraham for a large offspring, a large community of believers who have got the possibility by the ransom sacrifice or redeeming by the promised Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua, Yashua, Yahshua Christ. This Redeemer, our Saviour, has prepared us the way and is the mediator between God and men. He has arisen, the third day after his death, and has gone in to the sky, but shortly will come the judge the living and the dead. He has been sitting at the right hand of his Father the ‘ I that is’, the Elohim Hashem, God, YHWH, Yahweh, Jehovah, who has appointed him as a pontiff, our High Priest and as King of the Kings.
It is to Jesus his and our Father of all, that we must pray, give praise and honour. He has given us His Word which is there for everybody to their support and to instruction inabeling us to make the right choices and to change. We believe that the 66 books which are joined together in the Holy Scriptures, the Bible, written down in the name of God, we can find what God wants but also His promises and the announcements of beautiful things still to come, but which shall become achieved. God has not only transmitted his Word to men but had also foreseen that His strength, the Holy Spirit, can be with us and can accompany us in this life.
We believe that by making the wrong choice the first man and woman found oneself penalized and all their ancestors had to carry the impact of this wrong choice, and be born in imperfection, having to face death. We must arm our self against this wrong doing and carry ourselves the responsibility for the actions which we put forward. By the first sin the death has come to us all. The dead shall return to substance, dust and ash. In the future however we can have a beautiful expectancy. They that believe in Jesus Christ and his Father, show regret concerning their errors and for this have asked pardon, will be aroused from death and as children of God can be incorporated in the Kingdom of God.
It is this hope to eternal life in a peaceful paradise to which we look out hopefully and wishing to succeed the Jesus’ task to preach or to proclaim the Good News. In the ecclesia we bring, in the service, honour to Jesus and to God our father and remember the Last Supper with the Breaking of the Bread and drinking of the Wine as symbols of the New Covenant which is established by Jesus, who commissioned us this to do for his memory. In Jesus name thus we pray to God our Father that His kingdom should come rapidly and that we shall be able to enjoy His promisses and receive His reward.
