Make a difference.
At Oasis we are passionate about the things that Jesus was passionate about. When His disciples asked Him what was the greatest commandment, in Matthew 22:37-39, He made it very clear…
The Great Commandment
“Jesus replied, love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Matthew 22:37-39
Jesus goes on to say in verse 40, that all of the prophets and the law hang on these two things.
At Oasis not only are we very passionate about the Great Commandment, but we are equally committed to the Great Commission.
The Great Commission
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:19-20
Our mission is to Love God, Love People, and Make a Difference… And if we do that then we will be and build disciples of Christ, and therefore live out The Great Commandment and The Great Commission.
After over 7 years of serving in full-time ministry in LaGrange, GA, Wesley and Jessica Weatherford stepped out on nothing but faith and began pursuing the destiny that God had placed on their lives. After sensing for a great deal of time the strong desire to plant a church, they stopped using the excuses of Why? Where? and How? And came to the conclusion of Why Not? Why Not step out on faith like Jonathan did in 1 Samuel 14 and countless numbers of men and women have throughout history? Why Not leave the comfort and safety of where they are to pursue the uncertainty of where God is taking them? Why Not trust God and believe that He will do amazingly incredible things in them and through them? Understanding that the story is not about any of us, but that it’s about Christ, they are striving to become great storytellers of the awesomeness of Him.
When Wesley and Jessica left LaGrange they had a desire to Pastor a church with a passion to change the lives of people from all walks of life. After arriving in Augusta they started connecting with people of like heart and like passions and formed a team of people willing to pay the price of what it takes to plant an amazing church. That original team of 9 people began to meet every week and started having conversations of what Oasis should look like, feel like and ultimately become. The dedication of those original 9 people was the foundation of what Oasis is today.
In February of 2009 Oasis had it’s soft opening at the Tobacco Road Elementary School. After a year of setting up and tearing down each week Oasis had built a solid base of people, approximately 40-45 in number. It became apparent that it was time to move from the temporary location at the school to a more permanent space. So, in February 0f 2010 Oasis launched with a Grand Opening at 716 Broad St. in downtown Augusta.
Oasis experienced some exciting times on Broad St. There have been people that have come into a genuine relationship with Jesus, people who have been baptized and families that have been changed. It’s was an exciting season.
Because of growth Oasis was forced to relocate again – this time to Regal Cinemas 20 on Agerton Lane where God did some incredible things in the 5 months Oasis was there.
The opportunity then presented itself for Oasis Church to merge with Hephzibah Church of God, a church with a rich history in the community, and from these two great churches OASIS CHURCH AT HEPHZIBAH was born. It’s an exciting time and we are excited about the future of Oasis Church at Hephzibah!
