Family Bio

The Church began over 2,000 years ago with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. After leaving this world, God sent the Spirit to unite us to Him as one Family. This page describes the vision and values of what makes us God's people (Eph. 2:4-6; Eph. 4:1-6).

Our Mission

Reunion is a diverse group of people, united by the cross of Christ for the purpose of enjoying God and growing as a Family.
Reunion is a community where...

…the Faith of history is made alive in today’s world. …our love for Jesus is passed on from generation to generation. …the passion of every heart discovers Divine purpose in creation. …every person’s Spirit-gifting is used to build one Family.

Diversity
  • Diversity means we purpose to reflect our community (James 2:1-4; 2:8-9).
  • Diversity means we empower each person to use their giftings as given by the Spirit of God (1 Cor 12:3-7).
United
  • Our mission is to walk in the unity of our common salvation (Eph. 4:1-6).
  • Our mission is to maintain the unity of our one Faith (Col. 3:12-15).
Enjoying
  • Our mission is to find joy in serving God; even in the midst of great need (Psalm 86:1-4).
  • We purpose to set our hope on the Kingdom to come and the eternal pleasure of serving God (Isaiah 35:9-10).
Growing
  • Our mission is to grow in maturity (Ephesians 4:11-13).
  • Our mission is to grow new followers of Christ (Mark 16:15-16).
  • Our mission is to grow new congregations by planting more churches (Acts 11:19-21, Acts 11:25-26).

Our DNA

The DNA of Reunion helps us grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is less like a program and more like an organic relationship with Christ and His community.
The DNA of Faith means we are born of the Spirit who baptizes us into union with Jesus, our brother, and unites us to YHWH as our loving Father.
The DNA of Faith brings us into a new community, a spiritual Family, with whom we share our earthly joys and sorrows.
The DNA of Integrity inspires us to live in honesty with a Father who, without reserve or measure, loves and forgives us.
The DNA of Integrity removes the masks of “I am perfect” and “I have it all together” so we can live in humility with our Family.
The DNA of Commitment is our love for God expressed in an ongoing decision to count the cost and follow after Jesus.
The DNA of Commitment is our love for people expressed in our willingness to faithfully share in both our joy and sorrow.
The DNA of Accountability is submitting to the Father’s will so we can experience the total pleasure in His holiness.
The DNA of Accountability grows relationships of forgiveness and cleansing, which reorient our beliefs, customs and practices, both public and private.
The DNA of Incarnation is living in the power of Jesus’ resurrection wholeness even as we walk in our own earthly brokenness.
The DNA of Incarnation is allowing the world to see, touch, hear, smell and taste the physical presence of Christ in us.

Our Beliefs

What we believe and teach about Jesus Christ; the ONE true hope of salvation.
The Apostles' Creed

We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Bible

WE believe and confess the canonical Scripture to be the inerrant Word, inspired by a Holy God and penned by Man, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of Man, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

God
WE believe and confess our Faith in the One True God, named YHWH, creator of all things, One being in three persons, infinitely perfect, loving, and just; who has revealed Himself to Man through Scripture, who manifested Himself to Man in the flesh of Jesus, and is present in the world today through His Holy Spirit of promise.
Jesus
WE believe and confess our Faith in Jesus as Messiah of YHWH, both fully God made fully man, who in history was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered, died, raised from the dead and ascended into heaven so that Men might be redeemed from their fallen nature and restored unto God.
Holy Spirit
WE believe and confess our Faith in the Holy Spirit who is fully God and after the ascension was sent by Christ to convict the lost of their need for salvation and, as the Gift of God, He serves as the only sign and seal of Man’s engrafting into the Body of Jesus Christ (the Church). He regenerates the believing sinner, baptizing, indwelling, guiding, and empowering them for Christ-like living and service.
Man
WE believe and confess that Man, both male and female, was created in the image of God, but through the sin of Adam has been made corrupt in all ways and is incapable from within himself, or by any created means, to be restored into union with God.
Eternal Salvation
WE believe and confess that the glorification of Christ, the second Adam, in his death, resurrection, and ascension, constitutes the sovereign grace of God and is the sole provision for Man’s salvation and only through a confession of faith in this grace is a person sealed by God’s Spirit of promise and made an heir of eternal salvation.
The Church
WE believe and confess that the Church is both the spiritual and physical presence of God’s people from all ages who have come to salvation in Jesus as the Messiah of YHWH and who are called together to represent God’s eternal Kingdom to each generation and to worship Him through loving obedience.
Spiritual Beings
WE believe and confess that the world unseen is indwelt by non-corporeal beings which were created by God, and those beings which now serve God are properly referred to as Angels and those which have rebelled and followed Satan are called Demons.
Eternal Destiny
WE believe and confess faith in the immanent and literal return of our Lord as promised in Scripture and in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting life: eternal joy and peace with God, and of the unbeliever to eternal judgment: a total and final separation from God and everlasting conscious punishment.

Our Partnerships

Reunion is part of a larger family of Christians around the world.
Reunion is a proud member of the North American Missions Board (NAMB) SEND Network. Throughout the Bible we see a clear pattern of God calling and sending His followers. As believers, we are a people sent by God to carry the message of God’s love, mercy and redemption through His son Jesus Christ. That is missions at the core of every SEND Network church. Through a coordinated national strategy, Reunion is able to help move churches and individuals into all regions of North America fulfill God’s mission to build His Kingdom.
