What does it mean that The Coffee Oasis is a “faith-based” organization?
“Faith-based” can mean a lot of things. Everyone puts their faith in something or someone.
“Faith-based” to The Coffee Oasis means this:
We believe that Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life.
We believe that Hope and Life and Peace and Love and Forgiveness are found in Him.
Therefore, we follow Him.
And following Him means:
We attempt to live the way Jesus lived.
We believe what Jesus believed.
Jesus loved those on the fringes who were often rejected and ostracized.
Like Jesus, we love and serve every individual regardless of their race or religion or gender or identity or values or beliefs or anything else.
We don’t force Jesus on anyone and we don’t require anyone to believe what we believe.
This is the way of Jesus and we are His followers.
