At Oasis of Hope, our mission is to bring individuals, families, and communities into a maturing relationship with Jesus Christ through praise centered worship and Bible-based preaching and teaching. To further that mission, we offer Sunday school for children and an adult-themed Sunday school, as well as Wednesday Bible study. In addition, we engage in global missions as well as community outreach programs, and we partner with other community organizations. Ultimately, our purpose is building God's family by transforming lives.
Come and visit our church in Indianapolis and experience an Oasis in a desert land. We welcome all to become a part of God's family by entering into a personal relationship with Christ and uniting with this local body of believers.
A church that is obedient to the Great Commission and striving to advance God's Kingdom by creating a community of believers who are committed to each other and the cause of Christ. This will be accomplished by fostering a fellowship where ministries are strategically implemented to raise member's level of commitment; and by creating an atmosphere where all three generational groups of the church (communal, intentional, and traditional) are blended with an appreciation for each other. The atmosphere, our culture, is one that nurtures others to advance our purpose - glorifying Christ, making disciples, and edifying the body.
