Core Beliefs:

1. The Bible

The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself to mankind.  It is without error in its original language and was penned by men though inspired by God.

2. God

There is only one living and true God; He reveals Himself to us as Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

3. Mankind

Man was created by God in His own image.  By choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.

4. Salvation

Salvation is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.

5. The Church

The New Testament church is a local body of baptized believers in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, committed to His word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.  The church is an autonomous body, operating under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

6. Baptism

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ to make disciples of all nations, and to actively seek to win the lost to Christ.  Desert Springs also gives 10% of undesignated offerings received to local, national, and / or international missions.

7.  Stewardship

God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; it is our obligation to serve Him with our time, talents, and material possessions for His glory and for the help of others.  According to the Scriptures, Christians should contribute of their means, cheerfully and regularly for the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

8.  Church Discipline

We believe in the biblical principle of church discipline and restoration (1 Cor. 5:1-5; 14-20).
