Reformers Unanimous Ministries- “We Help Anybody”
Reformers Unanimous Ministries exists to help anybody who wishes to experience a life of victory over difficulty. This victory is obtained and retained not through an experience of ongoing effort, but through a once in a lifetime decision to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and a subsequent dedication to developing a dynamic love relationship with Him.
HOW CAN REFORMERS UNANIMOUS HELP CHURCH MEMBERS?
It’s a true statement that addiction knows no boundaries. There are no social, economic, ethnic or other barriers to addiction. This includes being a church member.
It flies under the church radar in the form of prescription medication abuse and pornography; it’s the socially acceptable addiction of food (overeating/gluttony); it’s the Christian curse of apathy or lethargy.
At RU we’ve seen literally thousands of church members over the years who have been developed a personal, intimate relationship with Christ when once they lived a life of bondage (even while attending church faithfully) they now live the “Victorious Christian Life”.
This victory is obtained and retained not through an experience of ongoing effort, but through a once in a lifetime decision to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and a subsequent dedication to developing a dynamic love relationship with Him. This part is critical for any Christian to have lasting victory.
We have seen church members who have grown up in church, served in various capacities, volunteered and who have been great Christian examples experiencing the power of the abundant Christian life! Often as church members come to our weekly meetings and go through the discipleship curriculum they see their walk with God increase, their personal relationships develop and their impact on others multiplied! Even those who have volunteered to “help others” begin to realize God still wanted to help them in their everyday life!
FROM REDUNDANT TO ABUNDANT
At salvation we received two benefits. The first benefit is Justification. That is freedom from the penalty of sin. The second benefit is sanctification. This is freedom from the power of sin. The book of Romans tells us that sin should no longer have dominion over us, for we are not under the law (where man does the work) but we are under grace (where God does the work). Yet, the benefits of Sanctification are intended by God to be enjoyed here on earth. The future benefits of justification are sealed when we accept information about Christ, but the benefits of sanctification are enjoyed when we develop a personal relation with Christ. It is sad but true that many Christians today do not enjoy this personal, intimate relationship with Jesus. Without it, we will find our Christian life to be characterized by ups and downs. Victory coupled with long bouts of defeat. Christ promised an abundant Christian life. This is nothing more than the redundant Christian life.
THE FIRST STEP IS CHURCH – GOD’S SUPPORT GROUP
Each student learns that truth early on in the discipleship curriculum and the support that Central Baptist Church provides through Bro. Rex Jackson's ministry, the preaching and teaching, the fellowship with other Christians and opportunities to serve the Lord and help others is the difference between Reformers Unanimous and other recovery ministries.
