The Christadelphians

The podcast is sponsored by the Book Road Christadelphians in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada.

The Christadelphians are a worldwide group of Bible students.

We have attempted to get back to the faith and character of the early Christian church in New Testament times. The name ‘Christadelphian’ has been in use for about 150 years. It comes from two Greek words and means “Brethren in Christ”.

Over 120 countries have Christadelphian congregations with large groups in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, North America, India, Asia, and Africa. A strong common belief binds our brotherhood together.

We accept the Bible as our only guide and believe it to be the inspired word of God. Our Statement of Faith goes into more detail about our shared beliefs.
