I f you are a Christian, then you are, by definition, a member of the Body of Christ. There is only one Body of Christ. Work for unity among your brothers and sisters in Christ as you are given opportunities. Study the materials on this site. Go to your Bible and study what God says about the church, and what he desires regarding oneness. Learn to be ready to give an answer to those who would question whether or not unity is God's will, or whether it is possible.
F or those of you who can, visit congregations to get to know the members of the Body of Christ in your own community or area. If you can't do this, then work for oneness in your own group or congregation, and advocate love toward the Christians in other congregations. Gently and respectfully champion the cause of Christian oneness. Approach it with the Spirit of Godly love inspiring and guiding you. Always pray for God's guidance as you do his work. Allow him to work in and through you. This is his work, and he will powerfully guide and enable you. He will not leave you or forsake you. As you have need for him and his power, he will be there to do this work through you, blessing your efforts.
W ork to encourage community gatherings that include all Christians. Attend these gatherings whenever possible. Many times there are non-denominational and transdenominational celebrations during the Christmas season or at other times. In small communities, inter-church potluck socials and picnics can be organized. Don't forget to invite home churches and small groups that exist outside of the formal denominations and churches.
W hen you work for unity, do not be discouraged if you do not immediately see the results of your labors. God's says that his word will not return to him empty. This is a promise. If you plant the seed, it will remain where you plant it until it grows. God causes the growth. He may use you to help it grow, or he may use someone else to finish his work. Just keep planting the seed of love and unity wherever you go.
Y ou may want to support Christian Reunion Ministries. You may do this by simply mentioning this ministry to others. If they have access to the Internet, give them the Internet address (URL). If you have a home page, or know someone who does and who is like-minded in the quest for unity, you can provide a link to our home page at http://www.christianreunion.org . You can also copy one of our banners from our Banner Page and place it on your site and link it back to us.
A n excellent way to actively work for unity is to join the Christian Reunion WebRing, sponsored and maintained by Christian Reunion Ministries. Here, web site owners can become part of a circle of Christians working for oneness, joining hands for unity across the World Wide Web. If you do not yet have a web site, contact your Internet Service Provider. Most ISP's allow a free personal site for their subscribers, and many will help you to get it up and running. Use the internet for the glory of God and the work of Jesus Christ.
Y ou may want to join our Christian Reunion Fellowship, an eGroup residing on Yahoo's servers. This group is something of an online congregation, and a place where you can fellowship with Christians with a desire for unity. Christians of various denominations or who consider themselves nondeminational are welcome here.
Y ou can also support the ministry by sending us your encouragement, and praying for this work. Most visitors to this web site come and go without us knowing who they are. We don't know if they support Christian unity. If you have been helped by us, please let us know. We need encouragement to keep going, just as you do. It helps us to have concrete evidence that our work is touching real people. Due to the nature of the Internet, there is not the kind of direct feedback that we receive in face-to-face ministry. Let us know how we are doing. We really do need your input.
I f you believe that there is only one church, and if you have come to see yourself, in your heart, as a member of the Body of Christ, tell others. Take advantage of opportunities to be a witness for the Body of Christ, the one church, to which you belong. Work to achieve a greater degree of understanding about who you are and where you belong. Try to think of yourself as a member of something much greater than the denomination, the local church group or other Christian group to which you may belong.
