Vision and Values
Here at Oasis, we believe the gospel is summed up in the story of a loving Father longing for His children. God, our Father, was looking for us and He found us and He has our attention. Such is His intimacy with us that time with Him is like being caught up in a dance with our first love and feeling His heart beat for us and those around us. We are a family who love encountering Him and His love by spending time in His presence.
Our desire is that everyone encounters His love like we have. That everyone knows God has dealt with all the issues that have kept them apart from Him—through Jesus on the cross. He dealt with sin and iniquity, He dealt with sickness and death. We are not separate from Him, we are fully in Him and He is in us. The great news is that knowing what He has done for us and who we really are in His is effortless. He gives us a gift of faith and then through His Holy Spirit He empowers us to live as the person He has made us to be.
