Christadelphian Beliefs

7. God made promises to Abraham
Abraham (the father of the Jewish nation) trusted God and so he was promised that he would possess the land of Israel for ever and that his descendants would be a great nation. He was also promised a descendant (Jesus Christ) who would bring the blessing of forgiveness of sins. By baptism we can share in the promises.

Genesis 13:14,15, Genesis 15:5,6, Genesis 22:15-18, Galatians 3:8,16,29

8. The Jews are God’s people
The Jews are God’s special people and witnesses to His existence and power. Because they disobeyed God they were scattered among the nations of the world. God is now regathering them to Israel as He promised.

Isaiah 11:11,12, Isaiah 44:8, Ezekiel 36:16-24, Ezekiel 37:21,22, Romans 9:3-5

9. Jerusalem will be the centre of the earth
God’s kingdom will be centred in Israel but will cover the whole earth. Jerusalem will be the capital of the world. Jews who accept Jesus as their Messiah when he returns will live as mortal people in his kingdom and become the head of the nations. Mortal people from the other nations will visit Jerusalem to worship and learn God’s ways.
