For Church Members

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 med 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”.

Reformers Unanimous is one of God’s miracles of the 20th century. I praise God that He chose Bro. Steve Curington to direct this amazing ministry that reaches out to the world’s addicted people.

– Art Rorheim, Founder/President Emeritus of AWANA Clubs Int’l

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.

The same principles that helped addicts overcome addictions…

When churches start a local chapter of RU they almost always immediately begin to see remarkable change not just in students, but in the lives of faithful church members! The transformation that God does in their lives is nothing short of amazing! Why? Because all is sin is addictive. Sins of apathy, depression, gluttony, gossip, anger, and criticism may be more socially acceptable, but they are no less wrong in God’s eyes, and can be just as damaging.

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.” (read the entire article on ‘The Secret to recovery is Victory!’)

The first step is church – God’s support group

My first step was to get back in church. After I left the hospital, I visited the church where I worshiped as a child. That is where God began to change my life. I got assurance of my salvation. I was no longer “lost.” I had been “found.” …Each Reformers Unanimous teaches the steps that lead to blessings from God. For me, those blessings consist of a beautiful wife, our precious children, a debt-free lifestyle, a career that led me to an executive position in the petroleum industry, and now, founder and president of the fastest growing, faith-based addictions program in America. God has done all of this. The best I could do for myself was a life crippled by addiction, debt, and misery.” (read the rest of ‘The Steve Curington Story‘)

One of the main reasons that makes Reformers Unanimous so effective is that it is local church based. The local church is God’s support group. Each student learns that truth early on in the discipleship curriculum and the support the local church provides through the Pastor’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.
