WE ARE SHREWSBURY CHRISTADELPHIANS

Welcome to Bible Truth Shrewsbury – part of the worldwide Christadelphian network. Bible Truth is freely available to anyone, including you. We invite you to explore our beliefs, read our literature, view our image gallery and come along to a service. We welcome visitors of all ages, from all walks of life.

VISIT US

We have regular weekly events, all of which you are very welcome to join with us. Sunday Bible Truth talks are given each week at 1.30 pm.

ABOUT US

Our name “Christadelphian” simply means “brothers (and sisters) in Christ”. We try to encapsulate the importance of our relationship with Jesus Christ as well as with each other.

NEWS/EVENTS

We hold several special Bible Truth events throughout the year and more details of each event is available on this website.

OUR WORSHIP

At Shrewsbury Christadelphians, we meet on a regular basis to study Bible Truth and learn more from the inspired word of God. The following are our regular events and you are very welcome to join us on any of these.

Our Beliefs

We believe that the “Holy Bible” is the only true revelation of God to mankind.  There is only one clear Bible Truth message contained throughout the book. That is God’s plan for this earth (established through Jesus Christ His Son), and how mankind can benefit from seeking God’s purpose in their own lives. We invite you to read more and contact us with your questions.

Our Links

We have links to two FREE BIBLE COURSES should you wish to learn more, as well as some other informative websites. We also show links to other local Christadelphian ecclesias.

THOUGHT FOR THE MONTH – DOCTRINE OR TRADITION


SCRIPTURE BASIS

Matthew 15 v 6 – 9 (NRSV)
6 So, for the sake of your tradition, you make void the word of God. 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied rightly about you when he said: 8 ‘This people honours me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; 9 in vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines.’


In both the above scriptures we see Jesus pointing out to the temple leaders, that things they were challenging him over were not God given doctrines but human principles. In these scriptures quoted above, the temple leaders were specifically talking about hand washing before eating (which is good common sense), but not doctrine. These precepts had been implemented for hundreds of years, and they obviously believed them to be doctrine.

We can find similar traditions in our current Christian society. Things that have been implemented by hierarchy from both State and Church authorities, again over hundreds of years of tradition. They are not always Biblical doctrine but human precepts, masquerading as such.

We as Christadelphians try to follow Biblical doctrine as closely as possible and not human traditions which have been established over many years.

We would challenge all Christians everywhere, of whatever faith, to consider the traditions in which they worship. Are you sure that what you believe to be Church doctrine is what the Bible tells us, and not just human principles established over hundreds of years? To be sure you might want to cross reference what you believe or have been told, against our “doctrinal statement of faith” and “doctrines to be rejected” (links to these documents are on the “about us” tab under the heading ‘further reading’ section. You may be surprised?

If you would like to know more about this, please use the contact tab or visit us any Sunday afternoon at 1.30pm.
