Resources

Oasis strives to be a source of help and information for anyone who is interested. We have a variety of resources divided into four main categories--theology, reviews, history, and sermons. The Theology folder contains theological studies. The Reviews folder has synopses and evaluations of books and music albums. The History folder contains articles related to Church History. The Sermons folder consists of sermons that are preached in services at Oasis. New articles should arrive periodically.
