Jesus stepped into human history over 2,000 years ago. He lived for 33 years, fully God and fully man. He is the son of God and came to bring peace to a world at war with itself.
In humility, Jesus chose to sacrifice himself on the cross so that whoever believes in him could have eternity with him in heaven. He took on the weight of all the wrong + darkness humanity had ever created and stood in the gap for us to be seen as pure and blameless in the sight of God.
Jesus taught us how to live by faith, be known by love, and be a voice of hope to the world.
His life proved to us that:
Your future is on the other side of your failures.
Your greatness is on the other side of your pain.
Your freedom is on the other side of your fear.
The reason Oasis Church exists is so that people, like you, can have new life in Christ. This new life isn’t something we attain for ourselves, it’s a free gift given to us because of God’s grace…
Ephesians 2:5 says “even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)” And this new life in Christ produces a new life in you. As you and I grow, we change and our life begins to produce Christian “fruit.”
If you would like to place your faith in Jesus, can do so by simply posturing your heart in humility, and praying a simple prayer by faith.
Pray: Jesus, I place my faith in you. I admit that I’m a sinner, and I’ve gone my own way. I believe you are the son of God, the messiah, and I confess you as my Lord. Amen
Cheers to new you,
Pastor Bill Rose
