Our History

divider
Our church began in 1979 as a home Bible study in Grand Terrace, CA. Led by Steve Mason, the study quickly outgrew his home and an old school auditorium was rented for Sunday morning services. The vision had begun. Our goal was to build a church that would speak the language of today’s culture, as well as encourage people who are far from God to investigate Christianity at their own pace. From 1990 to 2010, Oasis purchased and met in an old orange packinghouse in Redlands. Oasis now meets at 10455 Corporate Drive in Redlands, continuing to fulfill the mission of building the church.
 
We are a non-denominational church built on the foundation of Jesus Christ. We may use contemporary language, media and music to communicate God’s Word for today’s culture, but our message is as old as the Bible itself. We embrace historic Christian teaching on all doctrines emphasizing Jesus Christ’s death, resurrection and salvation through repentance and faith as a work of divine grace. Two primary values we hold are those of balance and authenticity. We are seeking to experience real love and the true power of God in a way that fundamentally changes our lives from the inside out – transforming people who can be effectively used by God to accomplish His eternal purpose.
