Our Beliefs

To Redeem, Restore, and Reunite all people to God

Bethany’s experience with Discipleship

Not Your Normal Sunday Service

We’re more than just another Sunday service. We’re on a collective mission to redeem, restore and reunite all people to God. We strive to be here for all, especially those who may not have a home to belong to yet. We hope that home is here at Reunion Church. 

Our Vision

We desire to see people saved by God through our ordinary lives to become submerged into their faith by belonging to a community and equipping them for their unique purpose through discipleship until we see all people reunited to God.

Values

We are outward focused, not inward driven

We foster a charitable and invitational community

We befriend and uplift those the rest of the world has given up on

We multiply by discipleship by way of the head, heart, and hands of Christian Living.

We want people to belong, even before they believe.

We celebrate the way God does the extraordinary in the ordinary

We train and send out excellent leaders

Reunion Church Statement Of Faith

About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

“The Creation of the World … 1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
Genesis 1:1

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”
Psalm 90:2

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father (John 10:28-30). Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 
John 1:1-5

“He is the image of the invisible God…. For by him all things were created….all things were created through him and for him…and in him all things hold together…He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.  For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things…making peace by the blood of his cross.”
Colossians 1:15-20

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

…It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you… When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
John 16:7-13

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
John 14:16-17

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

…It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you… When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
John 16:7-13

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
John 14:16-17

About Man

Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.

So God created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him;  male and female he created them”
Genesis 1:27

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:23

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way”
Isaiah 53:6a

About the Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,”
2 Timothy 3:16

The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times”
Psalm 12:6

About Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,  not a result of works, so that no one may boast”.
Ephesians 2:8-9

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6

About Sanctification

Sanctification, as well, is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin, even after salvation by self-improvement or good works. Nor can he self improve or earn his holiness, righteousness, or favor or God. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ to complete the work in each person,

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
Philippians 1:6

“Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?”
Galatians 3:3

About Eternal Security

Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
John 10:18-30

“Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.”
Hebrews 7:25

About Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.

And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life”
1 John 5:11-13

“And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 20:15

About Liberty

In addition to Essential Beliefs, we have liberty in Non-Essential Beliefs.

“Accept the one whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master servants stand or fall… So then each of us will give an account of ourselves to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.”
Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22

“I have the right to do anything,” you say–but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”–but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.”
1 Corinthians 10:23-4
