Who I Am and What I Believe
Statement of Purpose: Christian Reunion Ministries endeavors, in submission to God, and in service to his people and to all those he is now calling, to:
Be a transdenominational and
undenominational point of contact and a source of
teaching for all Christians who would be one together in
Increase scriptural understanding about unity and how to implement it by providing Bible study, sermon, and teaching materials to reunion-minded individuals, fellowships and church groups.
Assist individuals and groups by providing encouragement, direction, and education for those whom God calls to work for unity, and for seekers that God will call to be a part of the Body of Christ that have been blessed with the understanding that the church is one body.
Evangelize, calling people to Christ and to the fellowship of the Body of Christ, his church, only. I believe that all ministries must have this as their primary task.
I, John Davis, as director of Christian Reunion Ministries hold
that spiritual truth is absolute. I also admit to the
fact that church members presently do not know all truth
as it applies to all things (1 Cor.13:8-13). I hold that
the following doctrines are true as
stated, as far as they are presently understood. I believe
the Christian church can agree on these basic tenets without
violating the conscience of any member that looks to the
Bible for doctrinal guidance. The following list is not
intended to be all-inclusive, nor is it intended to
preclude any and all possible future growth in my
understanding of these subjects. They are doctrines that
can serve as rallying points for Christians in search of
unity. I do not expect that every
Christian who desires to work for unity will agree
completely with every statement of doctrine I put forth
on these pages.
You are invited to look into these doctrinal statements, even the ones that you feel are mostly taken for granted. You will see that there is more to these simple statements than is first apparent. You also may be surprised to learn where our belief in these basic doctrines must inevitably lead us, if we truly believe them to be true.
If you have doubts about any of these statements, then I challenge you to read what is written here with a humble mind and a prayerful attitude. And, as any careful study demands, go to your own Bible and read the surrounding context of the scriptures that are used here.
These simple statements that most Christians take for granted may appear as trite. They are not. These core Christian beliefs are essential to oneness. Pray first, then read carefully. You will see.

There is one eternally living God who is Creator of all
else that exists, and He is omniscient, omnipotent, and
God manifests himself in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
There is one Christian church.
The church is composed of all Christians.
A Christian is one in whom the one true God dwells.
The Holy Bible is God inspired.
The Holy Bible contains all the truth necessary for salvation.
Different translations of the Bible, and various interpretations of scripture and doctrine, may contain errors, but in all major translations the errors are not a barrier to salvation.
Salvation is by grace, a gift from God.
Christian works are the acts of Jesus dwelling in us.
Jesus lives in the members of the church, and the church is his body in this age.
Everyone sins and breaks the spiritual law, even Christians.
To love God and to love our neighbor is the fulfillment of all spiritual law.
God's forgiveness is ongoing and limitless, and available to all who truly accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
God will never leave us, nor forsake us.
