Sometimes we have to remember that we are all human. Being human means we all have different beliefs, wants, needs, personalities, likes, and dislikes. Some of us like the color blue and some prefer the color green. We all have different jobs, different levels of education, and different lifestyles. Being human means we are all different, and that is a good thing. If we were all the same, life would be rather dull. So with all this variance, what is Christian unity? Christians are divided into multiple denominations. Christians have various preferences as to the size of the church, the style of preaching, and even which translation of the Bible they would instead study from. With all this non-uniformity, how is it that we can have unity? Christians share so much more that needs to be celebrated. Christians share in aspects that, no matter the differences, unifies them in a way like no other. Let us take a quick look and be reminded. Let us put the differences aside and remember daily some aspects that unite Christians.

  1. Faith is strong belief in God, a belief in the doctrines of the Bible, knowing our prayers will be answered, knowing the love of God transcends.
  2. Prayer is a way to communicate with God, build a relationship with Him, provides communication with someone without being judged, helps to guide us in our daily decisions, and helps to redirect God’s attention on others that can benefit from God’s undisputed love.
  3. God and Jesus are the two things we believe. We believe that God had a son who died on the cross for all of us.
  4. The Bible is the holy text that carries across all denominations within Christianity that tells the story of Jesus, tells Christians how to live a Christian lifestyle, and tells Christians about the love, will and grace that God provides.
  5. Adam and Eve created the first sin; although Christians may disagree on the extent of this sin, all agree that it was the first sin and the stain it has left on humankind.
  6. Baptism is controversial regarding the when and how, however, all Christians believe that Baptism is a sacrament.
