Looking back, I think our administrative style and other factors has not helped us spread the gospel as we understand it to other people. Compared to Church of Christ, JW, Mormons, etc, we have had a very slow growth rate.
I suggest a drastic reformation on our style so that we can reach more people with the good news.
1. Christadelphia should be an association of groups, ministries and churches that share a common statement of faith.
2. Autonomy should be optional. Some of these groups/churches may run from a central point while others may want to be autonomous.
3. The name CHRISTADELPHIA is hard to pronounce and meaningless in all languages. Christadelphian churches should adopt a common reasonable name and say AKA the christadelphians.
4. Worship style should change drastically to accommodate the local cultures. In Nigeria for example, we should incorporate clapping of hands, local worship songs, etc in our service.
5. The statement of faith should be left as it is but a simpler version should be made available too.
6. Teachers should pass through a Bible training institute. Not everyone should be a teacher/speaker.
7. An official preaching website must be launched.
I don’t know if these things are right or will be accepted but judging from 1848 till date, we have performed poorly and we need a reformation.
