We are a community of individuals, churches, and organizations who care deeply about the diverse people from Muslim backgrounds who live in the Washington, D.C., area, and we want to reach out to them in love and friendship.
An oasis is a lush area in the midst of a desert or wasteland, usually centered around a spring or well which provides water. Oasis Life Network intends to provide an oasis for Muslims and Christians, that they may discover the living water of God and experience His rest and refreshment. We wish to share our lives with our Muslim friends and so share the life we have found in Jesus.
Jesus said to her: “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
While many Muslims call the Washington area home, most do not have meaningful interaction with followers of Jesus the Messiah. Many have never even met a believer in Christ. We want to change that! We want to meet our Muslim neighbors and welcome them in the name of Jesus.
We all know that friendship is a powerful force. It breaks down barriers and opens hearts. It crosses racial and cultural divides. It brings people — even people from dramatically different backgrounds — together. And so, through friendship, we hope to make a difference in the lives of Muslims in the D.C., area.
We at Oasis Life Network are teaming up with churches, Christian organizations, community groups, and cross-cultural partners. Through our network, we hope to demonstrate Christian unity, deepen regional support for our mission, and broaden our impact.
Our vision is driven by love. As we break bread together, share our stories together, and open our hearts to each other, our hope is that the life-changing love of Jesus the Messiah will be spread to many.
