A community discovering limitless and whole life with God
through thriving relationships...
Oasis is a ministry of the Tempe Church that is devoted to serving Arizona State University and other college students encounter God in the midst of the desert. Whether you are new to the Phoenix desert or you are experiencing a drought in your soul, we invite you to experience God in many ways. We want to be a home, a family, a connection point for you to embrace all that life with God has to offer. We have fun together. We worship together. We doubt together. We find joy together. We serve together. We pursue a life with God together.
We want to know God personally, intimately, and learn how to live this beautiful life with God. A relationship with God changes everything and makes life worthwhile. It is the defining connection of our lives and God desires intimacy and closeness with us. God wants to speak to us and hear our voice. God wants to walk with us just as Jesus walked alongside his disciples as friends.
God invites us to care for our world and has gifted each of us with unique skills and abilities that help us accomplish this task. We work alongside God to envision and create systems that bring healing to all humanity and creation.
Our friendships matter immensely because they can influence every part our lives. We want to develop friendships that cultivate the best in all of us, draw us to God, teach us to love all people, and celebrate diversity.
You are desired, respected, cherished, and known. It is in relationship with God that we come to know our real selves. The God of the universe adores the real you. We affirm and value one another as image bearers and children of God.
