About Us (Our Genesis)...
The First Official Service was held Sunday, August 13, 2006 at the Dr. Martin Luther King Laboratory School Auditorium. We had a powerful Praise and Worship led by Minister George W. Woolridge, Jr. and Bishop Harris Preached under the Anointing of The Holy Ghost from Ecclesiastes 10:5-7 – “Shake the Dust Off.” Membership cards were distributed. Eighty one (81) cards were collected and each person received the Right Hand of Fellowship. On Sunday, August 20, 2006, we continued to Worship God in Spirit and in Truth – Bishop Harris preached “How to deal with a Crazy Situation”, Matthew 17:14-21. Seven (7) souls were added to the Church.
OUR PASSION IS TO HELP THE MASSES TO FIND and FULFILL THE WILL OF GOD FOR THEIR LIVES.
Bishop Fred Ethan Harris, Jr., Senior Pastor of Oasis Christian Ministries International; the man of humble beginnings now leads one of the area's fastest growing congregations. With the vision of empowering all people to know God through life changing experiences from the inside out, Bishop Harris strives to minister to the "unreached". In other words, those people who have either been overlooked or those who are discouraged and disillusioned by traditional church. Bishop Harris is not only an anointed preacher and teacher but he is also a gifted musician and psalmist. As a young man he served as a musician for his church at Richmond Heights Church of God and then he went on to serve as musician in the St. Louis Metropolitan area and the States of Missouri, Illinois and Texas. He was called to the pastorate in July 1984 and has served as pastor of the New Bethel Baptist Church, Bethlehem Baptist Church, and Springfield Baptist Church.

Davis, Pastor; completed prescribed courses at Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis Missouri (1994) and the Doctorate of Divinity was conferred upon him from Glad Tidings Bible College in St. Louis Missouri (1995).
