As a vibrant cross-cultural worship center proclaiming the Word of God, we purpose to lead people beyond unprofitable religious tradition into a real, definable, relationship with God using the most innovative ways possible.
Daniel 11:32 says, "the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits"
It is God's desire that your life be marked by greatness. Great things, successful marriages, prosperous businesses, remarkable victories in our lives; these are irrefutable evidence of someone who genuinely knows God. Millions of people know about God but those who know Him intimately step up to a new level of greatness and influence.
The statements below provide an overview of our beliefs. For more comprehensive information, we encourage you to participate in our Membership Class the first Sunday of each month.
We believe in one living and true God, eternal and of infinite power, wisdom, goodness, and righteousness. He is a loving and faithful God who is the Creator and preserver of all things.
We believe in the divine nature of Jesus Christ, God's only son, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin named Mary. Christ was both fully man and fully God. His purpose was to restore our relationship to God, which was broken by sin (disobedience). Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven in full victory over Satan and sin.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the person and expression of the Holy Trinity who lives within us, giving us the power to live a holy life and guiding us to truth. His presence is what makes The Oasis unique. His absence is what makes church and religion boring and lifeless. When Jesus said I must leave, but I won't leave you alone, it is the Holy Spirit that He sent to us.
The Authority of Scripture
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments combined constitute the Holy Bible; no books may be added or deleted. The Holy Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit and is inerrant.
Because people are unable to save themselves from their sinful condition, salvation is altogether the work of God. Neither good works nor self-improvement can make up for our sin. Salvation is the free gift of God. However, like any gift it must be received. This gift is received by faith, or by believing and trusting in Jesus Christ who died as our substitute that we might live.
Gifts of the Spirit
We understand the Bible to be very specific and clear as it pertains to the Gifts of the Spirit and their manifestations in the present day church. We believe they are both available and operable not only in our church gatherings, but that they should be evident in our everyday lives. We believe that the Holy Spirit has given spiritual gifts to all believers for the purpose of building up the body of Christ and bringing glory to God. The gifts are to be exercised in love and emphasize the need for unity.
