HOW IT ALL BEGAN


In February 2003, Pastor Thomas E.

Wallace received a vision from God to build an Oasis in the desert. God commissioned him to prepare a place where people could come for restoration and to receive a revelation of God's power and His word. This vision later gave birth to New Oasis of Faith. Within a month, the search began for a church building and a prospect was soon discovered at 1369 Spears Road.  Pastor Wallace examined and prayed over the facility believing God to fulfill His promise. Although several other churches placed higher bids to lease this property, God’s grace prevailed and New Oasis of Faith Church was given the building.

Preparations were soon underway as the members came together in a joint effort to clean up and restore the new edifice.  Brother Richard Gipson and Joseph Stewart took the lead regarding coordination of this effort, while Brother Charles Carey fashioned the pulpit and media booth as well as taking the lead on most of the construction projects.  Everyone involved worked feverishly to meet the goal of moving into the new sanctuary by the first Sunday in May.  With God's blessing, the building was completed and the transformation was nothing short of miraculous.  The first service and consecration of the building was conducted Sunday, May 4, by Apostle A.S. Johnson, and on May 18, 2003, Pastor Thomas E. Wallace was installed as Senior Pastor by Bishop Shelton Bady of Harvest Time Church.

Within a time span of twelve months, several first-time events occurred at the New Oasis of Faith Church:

First ordination and licensing service

  •  August 31, 2003
  •  Five ministers were ordained as Elders
  •  Six people were licensed as Ministers

  •  an alternative form of worship
  •  Believers praised God through prose, poetry, recitation and drama

  •  discussions of information on the Brotherhood/Sisterhood of the Saints

  •  Leading by example

  •  Leading as a spouse
  •  Leading in the workplace

Other events included: Praise and Worship Workshop, Family and Friends Month, Fun Day Sunday and Evening Praise. 

After celebrating one year of ministry as the New Oasis of Faith Church, a series of events began to occur. On Tuesday, November 10, 2004, Pastor Wallace was nominated by Elder Andrew Johnson for the Office of Bishop. His nomination was sanctioned by the Elders, Ministers, and Ministers-In-Training until his consecration. Thomas E. Wallace otherwise known as Bishop-Elect Wallace or Pastor Wallace dubbed the year 2005 as "It's a New Season" for New Oasis of Faith Church. On January 12th, a proclamation went forth by Bishop B.G. Pierson of Changing Life Fellowship announcing the consecration of Pastor Wallace to the office of Bishop and on February 27, 2005, Pastor Thomas E. Wallace was consecrated as Bishop.

As God continued to bless New Oasis of Faith Church with new members and faithful servants; He revealed yet another vision to Bishop Wallace which entailed the church moving within two years. To Bishop's surprise, two years came sooner than expected.  Only a month later, Bishop Wallace discovered some commercial property for sale located on 6.8 acres of land and consisting of three buildings totaling 50,000 sq. ft.  Other churches were bidding on this property, but because of God's favor, the property became the ownership of New Oasis of Faith Church. Again  Preparations were soon underway as the members came together in a joint effort to clean up and restore the new edifice.   In September of 2008 Houston was hit by a Hurricane Ike, New Oasis sustained damage to the main Sanctuary and other buildings.  After one year New Oasis was able to moved back into the building, once again God prevailed for the church.  In February of 2013 Bishop Thomas E. Wallace was enthroned to the office of Archbishop.  In May of 2015, the 12th Church anniversary  the official unveiling and name change of New Oasis of Faith to New Oasis Kingdom Assembly Church.  In August 2017 Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area. New Oasis sustained major damage. New Oasis continued steadfast in the faith. Within a few months God open a door for the church to continued worship services.  In April of 2021 a new location was found for the New Oasis Kingdom Assembly at 8802 Kelburn Dr.77016
