Glue recommendation

Can anyone give me some advice on which would be the strongest glue to use on the joints of my 6 panel interior doors which have a tendency to spread apart every few years. I probably haven't removed the old glue thoroughly but I will do this as soon as I can think of the appropriate tool for this application.
(Could use some ideas on the tool as well) Thanks everyone.

Personally I like Titeband III. The other thing you can do is pin the tongues with dowels once the door is clamped together tight. Pocket screws can also be used if installed properly. That is so they are not screwed into end grain.

This is the best glue in the world :) If I one day learned that NASA used it for the space shuttle I wouldn't be surprised :D The next time I order some it will be in the gallon size instead of the 16oz. size. The only thing I don't like about it is the long drying time, but it's worth it.

Good to hear about Titeband III, I'll have to see if I can find it locally, for my projects. Thanks.
