Statement of Faith
The purpose of Oasis Youth Ministries is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with youth and adults, and to equip them to become lifelong disciples of Jesus.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God 
(Isaiah 28:13; Nehemiah 8:8; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 
1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:3-4 and 1:21).

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and 
Holy Spirit; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all things (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8 and 48:16; Matthew 28:19-20; John 1:1,14; 10:30; Hebrews 1:3).

We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His 
substitutionary atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe in His perpetual intercession for His people (Isaiah 7:14; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-2, 8:58 and 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:8; 
Revelation 1:8).

We believe that all people are sinners by nature and, therefore, are under 
condemnation; that God saves and regenerates through the work of the Holy Spirit,
based upon faith, for those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (John 3:3-7; Ephesians 2:1-3 and 8-9; Romans 3:23 and 5:8; Titus 3:5).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide (John 6:13, 14:16-17 and 16:8-11; Romans 8:26).

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ, in the universal Church of which Christ is the head, and that all who are born again are a part of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 4:15-16)

We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell and that all those who place their faith, hope, and trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity with the Lord, while those who reject Jesus’ free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from the Lord. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (Psalm 9:17; Matthew 18:9 and 25:31-34; Mark 9:42-49; Luke 12:5; John 3:18; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Peter 1; Revelation 14:10-11 and 20:11-15).

We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship 
between one biologically born man and one biologically born woman and that all 
intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, 
homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin (Genesis 2;24-25; Exodus 20:14, 17 22:19; Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, 15-16; Matthew 19:4-6; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians
6:9-10, 15-20; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 7). We believe that God created the human race 
as male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth gender is immoral and therefore sin (Genesis 1:27)
