FAQs

What if every one there knows more than I do?

The classes are run in such a way as to make everyone feel comfortable. No-one is ever put "on the spot". Teaching sessions assume hardly any previous Bible knowledge.

Why are you doing this?

The Bible is scarcely read in todayís fast-paced society. Our faith and belief in God propels us to expound his message and truth. We believe that the Bible teaches us what is right and good directing our lives and families. In Christís day, the apostles spread the gospel message and the commandments of God. We also feel compelled to make known to all who would listen the wonderful plan God has for the earth.

Who will be paying for the evening classes?

An extremely important question, as very few things today are free. All expenses are being absorbed by the Christadelphians in the area. No financial expectations will ever be expressed to you, now or in the future.

Will I be asked to be "saved" or "join" the Christadelphians at the end of the evening classes?

No! You will not be pressured during or at the completion of the classes. Our hope is that the classes will encourage you to draw your own conclusions about God and His plan. These classes will equip you with the necessary tools to make your own decisions about what you have learned.
