Introducing the Christadelphians
Christadelphians believe that it is by faith that we find access to the hope of salvation. By a belief of the true gospel and baptism into the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, we take on His name, Christ's name being the only given under heaven "whereby we must be saved". At death, we return to dust, until the return of Christ, at which time he will call to judgment his saints, both dead and living. They will then be judged according to their works and receive in body according to what they have done, whether it be good or bad. The faithful will be invested with immortality, the unfaithful consigned to the second death on account of their sins subsequent to baptism. Those who have not put on the saving name by immersion into it will be left in the dust eternally. The faithful will inherit the Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world. This Kingdom, which Christ and his saints will set up, will begin with the re-establishment of the 12 tribes of Israel (the former Kingdom of God) in the land promised to Abraham, and eventually subdue all other kingdoms. The mortal natural Israelites, established in their land, will constitute the primary subjects of the Kingdom, governed by the twelve apostles who shall sit on twelve thrones. Mortal gentiles shall constitute the secondary subjects, being inhabitants of Christ's vast empire, which shall encompass the entire earth. Once fully established, this Kingdom will continue for 1,000 years under the rulership of Christ and the saints. At the end of this period there will be another resurrection and judgment, resulting in the final extinction of the wicked, and the immortalization of those who have established a title to eternal life (under the grace of God) during the 1,000 years. Finally, sin and death itself shall be destroyed, and the Kingdom will be delivered up to the Father, who will then be the "All in All".
It is only by an understanding of and faith in the true Gospel, (The Things concerning the Kingdom of God and the Name of Jesus Christ) manifest by immersion into the Name of Jesus Christ and a patient continuance in well doing, that any have access to salvation and eternal life.
