The Oasis of Love Church is a vibrant, active, Christian church whose goals and vision continue to expand with the ever-changing needs of our society. Our goal is to reach those who are in need, but our goal doesn’t stop there. If one can make a difference, imagine what a whole body of believers working together can do to be more effective in meeting today’s challenges. Therefore, a second goal we have is to train young men and women to be the leaders of tomorrow. We believe God wants His Church to have input and be an integral part of every sector of society. In whatever area we are involved with, whether politics, economics, entertainment, sports, etc., the kingdoms of this world should become the kingdoms of our God.
We believe the Bible to be the Word of God. Holy men of God wrote the Bible as they were inspired of God. The Bible contains the complete revelation of God’s plan and purpose for Man and his salvation. We believe in the continual unveiling of the Scriptures by God’s holy apostles and prophets in the Church today.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. He is one Spirit with the Father and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Triune God.
We believe that all power and authority of the God-head rests in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ as revealed in the New Testament.
We believe Jesus Christ was sent forth by the Father and became Man.
Therefore, we know Him to be the God-Man - True God and True Man. We believe that as Man, Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, that He shed His blood and died on the cross for Man’s sins, then He descended into Sheol-Hades. After three days He was raised to life by the power of the Spirit and ascended to the right hand of the Father. We believe He now dwells in the Church by the Holy Spirit to perfect the Church into His likeness and image. We believe He will come again from heaven a second time in all power and glory to judge the world and establish His everlasting Kingdom with a new heaven and new earth. We believe in order to see and enter into the Kingdom of God we must be born again of the Spirit and the water as Jesus taught in John 3.
We believe the Universal Church to be the redeemed of all mankind from Adam and for all time. It is the Body of Christ with Christ as the Head. We believe God chose the Church through which to reveal His glory and that the Church is predestined of God to inherit all things with Christ. We believe in Christ’s Great Commission to the Church to spread the Gospel to all nations throughout the world, making disciples and teaching them to observe everything taught by Jesus Christ.
We believe in the importance of the Local Church and that each believer should be a member of a local body of believers for the purpose of receiving training in the Scriptures, discipline and for growth to maturity in Christ.
We believe all believers should experience the six Foundation Stones as given in Hebrews 6.
We believe in the complete and finished atoning work of Christ which include the following benefits (Heb 6:1-3):
We believe miracles and other manifestations of power through the Holy Spirit should follow believers as Jesus taught in Mark 16:17-18.
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit as taught in I Cor. 12.
We believe in the five-fold ministry gifts as found in Eph. 4:11, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.
Worship is based on the Bible pattern described in the Old and New Testaments and we are admonished throughout the scripture to worship Him. “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, Him only shalt thou serve.”
We believe in the Scriptural order of worship in the Church, including:
