Vision: (Seeing)

The Oasis is a movement of God where all people are welcome to investigate, embrace and experience life change.

 

Mission: (Doing)

We live out this vision by having eyes to see what God is doing around us, ears to hear His voice when He speaks to us
and boldness to go wherever He leads us.

 

Values:

The Oasis celebrates and values Life Change.  We live out this Life Change by focusing on these 5 values. 

  1. Community. Our church family is more than place to meet on Sunday morning.  We are COMMUNITY: That means that we get involved in each others lives.  We are not doing this life alone.  This is why it is so important to be involved in a small group…that’s where you really get to know other people and can become community.
  2. Relationship.  Believe it or not, God is not all about rules.  Sure there has always been a need for rules, but more than that God has always desired relationship.  He wants to have relationship with us and to be part of our lives on a daily basis.  
  3. Authenticity.  With all of the fake stuff that the world has to offer, we strive to be real.  We are a people who have normal struggles, hopes, fears and pain.  We don’t ever want to come across as a group that has it all together or that we have it all figured out.  We want to live this life understanding that we all need to seek God.
  4. Service.  The Oasis has always been about serving others.  Whether it is serving our neighbors, our community or other people across the world.  God has opened the door for us to serve people in many different areas and we continually look for opportunities to be a tangible presence of Jesus in people’s lives.
  5. Relevance.  We desire to make everything we do relevant to daily life.  Whether it is our teaching on Sunday morning, our small groups, or children’s and youth ministry.  We never want anyone to go away saying that was a good lesson, but I don’t see how it fits my life.  We want everyone to leave knowing what their next step needs to be in their journey.
