1 : a fertile or green area in an arid region (as a desert)
2 : something that provides refuge, relief, or pleasant contrast

Hello, and welcome to the Oasis!  This forum exists for Christians to come together as one, for edification, encouragement, comfort and peace.

Please take a moment to read the following.  This is the foundation upon which this forum is built;


1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (AMP)
4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. 5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. 7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. 8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].


This entire forum will strive to revolve around the principles listed above, and in doing so, it is my sincere desire that this will become an Oasis for you, an escape from the strife, a place of rest and relaxation.

So to those who are tired and weary of the strife, I say to you, welcome to the Oasis of His grace!
