Our program utilizes the Word of God (Acts 12:5-8 5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. 6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. 7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. 8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.) to offer a sincere, compassionate Oasis of Love to encourage those offenders who have a sincere desire to change their lifestyles, there heart, and the way they think.
Freedom from bars can get you outside, but it can’t change your life on the inside. Yomay know what it is to be bound by bars; however, many people even on the outside are held prisoner to a life without hope. Perhaps you know what it is like to be captive of despair. This ministry, Oasis of Love, offers better hope than getting out of prison or jail; using alcohol or drugs; living a life full of sin, but the chance for you to draw near to God and be given a new life through Jesus Christ with deliverance.
Through this ministry and the Word of God you will find there’s only one way to be free on the inside and be delivered from sin, poverty, sickness, disease, and the curse of the enemy. You can be free on the outside, but still be bound on the inside without Jesus Christ. Let Jesus Christ free you both on the inside and out, physically, mentally, and spiritually, and emotionally.
If you haven’t already given your life to Jesus, now is the time of Salvation. He will deliver you from whatever has you bound. One day we are all going to die and spend eternity somewhere whether it be Heaven or Hell. The Lord is soon to come back and if you are not born again, you will not go to Heaven. The day you hear His voice harden not your heart, He wants to deliver you.
Only Jesus can save you, set you free from sin, and give you a victorious life. The Bible says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”, so why not be delivered and be set free!
