Pastors Mary and Raymond Flores dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal - helping people connect with God so that they might reach their full potential. With the help of the Dream Team, thirty-four people committed to seeing this dream become a reality, Oasis Church began in March 2004 at the pastor’s house, twenty-five people attended our first service.
From the beginning, Oasis Church focused on reaching out to the non-churched community by building relationships. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday services, and the simple style of Oasis Church brought immediate growth.
