From The Pastor's Desk - Christmas 2013
Peace on earth is the theme this year for us here at Oasis Christian Centre in Beeston.
It is taken from the message that the Angels sang on the night that Jesus - The Promised Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) was born.
In the fields Shepherds were keeping watch over their flocks of sheep. Suddenly the Angel of The Lord appeared in all The Glory of The Lord. The Shepherds, very understandably, were terrified. The Gospel of Luke records the historical event in chapter 2: 10-14.
Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you Good News of great joy which shall be for all people; today in the City of David
there has been born for you a Saviour, who is Christ The Lord.
And this shall be a sign for you. You will find a baby
wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.
At that moment:-
Suddenly there appeared with the Angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth Peace among men with whom
His favour rests.
Peace on Earth is the message of The Angels Song from Heavenly Father to us!
Peace on Earth is the message The Angels sang to the Shepherds
Peace on Earth is the message of The Angels song declaring A Name of Jesus - Prince of Peace!
We live in a world of turmoil, strife, strain, challenge and difficulty. But Jesus was born, Saviour of the world, so that we could live in the Peace of God - in the midst of the reality of our life.
Saul, who became the Apostle Paul, had been so Anti-Christ but Jesus met him on the road to Damascus. He was converted. He accepted his need of the forgiveness of God - only available as a gift from God, through Jesus who died on the cross to pay for his (Saul) and our sin. He writes in Colossians 1:20 about Peace through the blood of His cross. Saul confessed his sin, turned away from it and began living with Jesus as boss of his life. As he did so he received Peace on Earth, in his life.
We too can know Peace on Earth, by experiencing, on a moment to moment basis:-
PEACE WITH GOD - We have peace with God!
PEACE WITH OURSELVES - He Himself is our Peace! (Ephesians 2:14)
PEACE WITH OTHERS - As we practice peace. The God of Peace shall be with you! (Philippians 4:9)
This Christmastime, and for all of our earthly life, our prayer is that we will live with, in, and expressing Peace on Earth. To fulfil that we need to know Jesus, The Prince of Peace. Just as He was waiting for the visit the Shepherds so Jesus waits for you to talk to Him, worship Him, and live for Him!
With every good wish, Pastor Nigel
100th Anniversary of the Gospel Mission Building
From the Pastor's Desk.......................
This weekend, at Oasis, we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Official Opening of The Gospel Mission Building. Rev Gordon Neale, our Regional Superintendent is our Guest Preacher. The Celebration begins at 10.30am.
100 years ago, as part of our Spiritual Ancestors Celebration, the congregation left the building through the then old Hall (Replaced in 1985). They walked up Union Street, turned right onto The High Road, to Willoughby Street, turning right, entering into the New Church Building with a shout of praise. During our Celebration we will re-enact that walk and declare our joy at serving The Lord Jesus Christ, at this venue, as we enter the second Century!
We have produced a Booklet for the day. Which is printed below (click read more) The pictures for the booklet can be found in the Photo Gallery in The Church Album. After the Anniversary Celebration we are going to share lunch together. Please come and join with us as we Celebrate The Faithfulness of God and His people to the ministry here at Oasis Christian Centre, Beeston.
With every good wish, Pastor Nigel
On Friday 15th June 2012 we celebrate the 100th Anniversary since the laying of the foundation stones to the then Gospel Missions Hall.
We praise God for the faith and vision of our forebears. Their determination to build a centre for the Gospel outreach that they had begun nearly 30 years earlier.
What an inheritance we have gained from those who have gone before us - practically, physically and most importantly spiritually.
Over the years we have demolished, renovated, extended, developed buildings enabling us to be in the position that we are today, by The Grace of God. At the moment we have scaffolding around this 100 year old building as we are replacing the six dormer windows and the tiles on the roof.
Like those Christian Believers 100 years ago we are enjoying the present with its opportunities and challenges. And we are looking forward, in faith and with anticipation, to what The Lord Jesus has for us to be involved with and to become.
