We are a family that hungers for the presence of God and does life together. We have a heart to love and help those who have been hurt by church or have walked away from the Lord. Love is our highest value!
Our mission comes down to this: Receiving God's love and giving it away. This is Oasis. It's a divine flow that begins in heaven, continues through us, and out to our world. We are committed to have God's presence encounter us and let Him love us. And as we do, we're changed. We're healed. We're set free.
Then we give that love away. It can look like a hug for a struggling friend, providing shelter for the homeless, unconditional acceptance of everyone with no stones to throw, calling upon someone in love and patience, praying for a miracle to take place (and watching it happen)... love can take on so many forms! You will find no condemnation, shame, guilt, or rejection here--only people calling you higher into the identity and purpose that God has for you. You will also find a group of people who believe God is good and expect Him to be the supernatural God He is.
Part of loving one another is knowing that conflict and disagreement is going to happen in any relationship; it’s how we handle conflict and disagreement that matters. Living from the foundation of God’s love enables us to grow and see health in our marriages, families, friendships and even toward strangers. To that end, we have put together our church family commitment to one another:
Openness and honesty
Teachable and not defensive
Love is non-negotiable in disagreement and adversity
Believe the best of one another
Trust one another's hearts above words and actions
Negative fellowship and criticism is an offense against the house
Look out for one another
Consider others more important
Our church is passionate about family—we see God’s church as family and not a business. The goal in business is to move up the corporate ladder, sometimes at the expense of others. The goal of family, however, is maturity, and as a result we want to partner with people to step into the fullness of their God-given identity! We trust God’s blueprint for our lives is better than our own. You have a destiny and purpose from Him that is brilliant!
