Giving Account

The thought of standing in front of Jesus and giving an account for what we have done in our lives can seem like a daunting proposition. The questions begin to run through our minds as we think about what we might say to him. How will we ever justify our actions and our thoughts? In …

Coffee Morning

On the first Saturday of every month  the Ormskirk Christadelphians are open for questions from 10am.

Whatever your background – if you have a question, these sessions can be structured to what you need.

Perhaps you…

> have questions about life which you think you’d like a Bible perspective on

> want to know the basics of the Bible

> would like some guidance in how to tackle Bible reading for yourself

> have a specific question about the Bible

Whatever you need to help you get your head around this amazing book, we’ll try our best to accommodate.  Just drop in and we’ll take it from there.

There is of course the added bonus that these sessions are combined with our Saturday Coffee Morning – so you can grab a drink and a biscuit as well as something potentially more substantial too.

What We Believe

There has been a Christadelphian meeting (or ecclesia) in Ormskirk for over 100 years, but our belief is much older than that. The Christadelphians are a body of Christians that place their beliefs wholly on the Bible.

The name ‘Christadelphian’ means “brothers and sisters in Christ”. We have been known by this name for well over 100 years. Our aim is to live by faith in Jesus Christ, according to the teaching of his followers from the first century AD.

We believe that those who follow Jesus and his apostles now, looking for strength and forgiveness from God, may confidently place their hope in Christ’s return to the earth, when he will bring eternal life to his people, and establish the long-promised Kingdom of God. We believe you can be sure of the Bible and the truth it contains.

The Key Christadelphian beliefs are: The Bible is God’s word and the only message from him. It is without error, except for copying and translation errors.

There is only one God – the Father. The Holy spirit is God’s power.

Jesus is the Son of God, and a human being, through his mother Mary.

By living a sinless life Jesus has opened the way of salvation from death.

Jesus is currently in Heaven, on God’s right hand. He will one day return.

When he returns he will rule the earth and give immortality to those who have tried to follow him and do the will of God. His followers will help him to rule.

Man is mortal, having no existence when dead. The reward for the faithful is eternal life on earth after Christ’s return.

Baptism is essential to gain this eternal life.

Glossary

Christadelphians sometimes use words or expressions which at first may sound a bit odd or out of place.  This glossary is a brief guide to some expressions you may hear used or read in the Christadelphian community.
Christadelphian – this is a Greek word which we find in the New Testament and means “brethren in Christ”.  Christ uses this expression to refer to those who have chosen to follow him.  The word brethren, in this case, is usually regarded as referring to both sexes.  Christadelphians will commonly refer to each other as “brother” or “sister”.

Ecclesia – this is a Greek word which we find in the New Testament and means “assembly” or “called out”.  It is often translated as the word “church” in many versions of the Bible but the word refers more to the people than a building (in fact many Christadelphian ecclesias don’t have their own buildings). Just as in the first century, an ecclesia can range from being a handful of people to several hundred.  A list of the Christadelphian ecclesias worldwide can be found at the “This is Your Bible” website.

“God wiling” – you will often hear Christadelphians use the expression “God willing” and in print it may be written as “DV” (from the Latin “Deo volente” which literally means “God willing”).  This is an acknowledgement that all things that happen in our lives and the world around us are at God’s will.
