Religion is powerful—so powerful it can shape our consciences. Unfortunately, our consciences have been shaped by a version of Christianity that reflects a blend of the rules-focused temple model and the Jesus movement, which is demonstrated by love. As a result, we’re tempted to prioritize law keeping over loving others. How do we reconcile God’s law with Jesus’ call to love our neighbors?

Jesus stepped into a world where religion was characterized by the temple model: sacred places that housed sacred texts that were interpreted by sacred men who used those texts to control superstitious people. Jesus initiated something entirely new, a complete departure from the temple model. But soon enough some of his followers began to try to assimilate Jesus into the temple model.

Our Mission: To help people take next steps on their journey with Christ

At Oasis, our vision is to help people take "next steps" on their journey with Christ. We strive to live life in community (house churches) where we find deeper, meaningful relationships that help us grow in our faith by being centered on Jesus and the Word of God. We gather together on Sundays to give our kids an environment to learn about Jesus, sing together, take communion, be taught the Word of God, encourage each other, and hear stories of what God is doing in our various house churches.

Because we are changing and becoming more like Christ, our city is impacted in greater ways. Our goal is that Ormond Beach is a better place to live because of the people who live in it. We are becoming a people who are more committed to our marriages, who are investing in raising healthy children, who care about the needs of those around us, both in our friendships and our community, and are aware and engaged with the needs and issues facing humanity around the globe. The results are less about what we do, and more about who we are becoming. When we become the true Church that God intended, it will shape what we do and how we live our life.
