John and Anita Rewald founded Oasis New Life Centre in April 2002. During this time Oasis has grown and continues to be a life giving church that is making a difference in Rockhampton and the surrounding region and beyond.

We are so excited for what God has in store for us! He has been more than good to us and has grown us in many areas including people, finance, buildings and ministries. Each year has brought something new and exciting and we are looking forward to and are expectant of what the future holds.

Oasis New Life Centre is based on our slogan “A Church for the Whole Family.” We offer to be the answer for those who may be estranged or do not have a family near them, to be a friend and a support as we do life together! We aim our services to reach people of all ages including babies, kids, teenagers, young adults, singles, couples, and the elderly.

We have a variety of different ministries to reach each of these ages, including various connect groups. We believe that children are our future and that they are worth investing time into. So, no matter what your family looks like we would love to get to know you and help you get connected into the life of Oasis.

Our vision is to continue to see the church grow by new people making Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour. We want to reach our community and see lives changed! We hope that you are able to join us in this vision and get excited for what God has planned for us this year. After all, we only have 52 weeks each year to make a difference, so let’s get started! 

Our Vision:
To be a spiritual Oasis to all who thirst by promoting new life in Jesus Christ with relevance (John 7:37).

We desire to be a church that:
1. Puts God first in everything.
2. Is committed to an atmosphere of faith.
3. Desires to see the salvation of our community.
4. Serves one another in love.
5. Encourages people to reach their potential and live their dreams.
6. Has influence in our region.
7. Conveys a message of Faith, Hope & Love (Mark 12:31, 1 Corinthians 13:13).

Our Values:
Families – A church for the whole family.
Music – To have great music / worship that brings the presence of God.
People Involvement – A church committed to maturity through discipleship, people discovering gifts and talents, finding their place and fulfilling their destiny.
Fun – Church is where we want to be not where we have to be.
