10. An Early Christadelphian Statement of Faith

What follows is an exact reproduction of the original “Synopsis of the One Faith Taught by the Apostles”, composed by Dr. John Thomas in 1867.

This synopsis was later referred to by Brother Thomas himself as “a definition of the one faith and the one obedience...the definer’s creed...what he believes and holds as the truth as it is in Jesus.” He seems to have followed the pattern of the Apostles’ Creed, reflecting the brevity and simplicity of that document, while amplifying a few items.

This statement has been adopted by some Christadelphian ecclesias, and is still in use today in certain quarters.
