Christadelphian Beliefs

25. Demons, unclean spirits
‘Demon’ is a word used to describe false gods or idols. People with strange behaviour problems were said to have a demon. Today these medical conditions can be helped with medicines. There are no evil spirit powers that cause problems in the world.

Psalm 106:36-38, 1 Corinthians 10:18-21, Matthew 8:16,17

26. We must all repent
We need to realise how sinful we are and be truly sorry for all our wrong thoughts and actions. Repentance involves a complete change of heart.

Psalm 51:1-10, Matthew 4:17, Luke 13:1-5, Acts 3:19; 17:30

27. Adult baptism in water
It is essential to believe the teachings of the Bible, repent of our sins and then be baptized. Baptism is a complete burial in water. It is a symbol of dying with Christ and rising again to a new life.

Matthew 28:19,20, Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1-11
