Houston Oasis is a secular humanist community celebrating the human experience as opposed to any deity. Instead, we talk about real-world principles based on reason, not tradition, and supported by evidence, not scripture or revelation.
Founded in September of 2012, Houston Oasis is creating a new place for freethinkers to celebrate as a community. Houston Oasis is fundamentally different from a church; we could be described as a freethought oasis, where we welcome all people who want to be part of a community exploring life through reason.
Everyone is on their own journey. Whether they are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Agnostic or Atheist, we look to provide a community that accepts you as you are on your journey: as long as you accept others for where they are on their journey, you will be accepted in return. We aspire to be a community where people come together, celebrate the human experience, and not let faith get in the way.
Houston Oasis meets every Sunday at 10:30 am. The community gets together to enjoy coffee, live music, and to learn something new about the world, to draw strength from the power of human community, and to engage in service projects for the betterment of the human condition. Our hope is that you leave each Sunday with a desire to reflect or make a positive change within yourself or the community at large. We invite you to join us to make new meaning in life by making a difference and doing great things.
At Houston Oasis: People are more important than beliefs. Only human hands can solve human problems. Reality is known through reason, not revelation. Meaning comes from making a difference. Labels are unimportant. And everyone should be accepted wherever they are as long as they are accepting in turn.
