Oasis of Faith Christian Center
In 1988 the Lord gave Pastor Darrell Harrelson a vision for developing a ministry in the High Desert of Southern California. The following information represents the vision as given at the time and also reflects subsequent revelation of the vision. The ministry is to be a lighthouse to a lost and dying High Desert. The ministry will be known as “An Oasis of Faith and Love in the High Desert!” “Helping You Prosper and Live a Victorious Life!”
The primary purpose of this ministry is to teach the uncompromised Word of God, and to proclaim the “Good News” of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to minister by precept and example, teaching the Body of Christ to walk in victory and to adopt a lifestyle beyond reproach.
Our vision is for a Church of born-again, spirit filled believers that would be governed by the principles and doctrine in God’s Word. This Church would, in it’s growth, operate within Biblical principles instructing all people in the Word, so that they would learn how to rise from burned-out hopes and faulty lifestyles, using clearly defined and enlightened precepts of faith, accept and enjoy the privileges and promises God has for through Jesus Christ. All of us working together play important roles in addressing the dynamic challenges of this growing ministry, and meeting the spiritual needs of the ones God sends.
In establishing Oasis of Faith Christian Center, and in obedience to our Lord Jesus Christ, intent and objective in submission to our Heavenly Father. We shall, therefore, endeavor to maintain the integrity of this ministry so that it will, through it’s Biblical teachings, schools, television, and all other ministries remain above reproach and transparent to the world.
Let us continually strive to achieve the same kind of love and compassions to all people, faithfulness, strength, truthfulness, self-control, patience, and motivation for service, which is displayed by our “Great Example Setter,” the Lord Jesus Christ!
