We're about 4 things as a church

Our vision as a church is expressed and lived out through these 4 simple statements that we say all the time:

Helping people find & follow Jesus

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

Pursuing the presence of God

Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”  (Exodus 33:15)

Turning compassion into action

James, Cephas and John…agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the circumcised. All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along. (Galatians 2:9-10)

Doing life together 

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. (Romans 12:4-5)

What we value:


When you come you're going to hear a lot about Jesus, we point everything back to him.


We have a low tolerance for fake religiousness. We know we're all disasters in need of God's grace.  So be yourself when you come.


God created diversity in the beginning, and he tells us diversity will be in eternity.  So let's do it now.


You're not a number to us. We want to share a cup of coffee with you and hear your story.


We believe that Jesus can work best when we don't try to do his job for him.  So we give lots of space for you to be in process with God wherever you're at in your journey.  No pressure.


God is a generous God and we want to be like him.  You can't outgive God. 

What we believe:

The Desert Vineyard stands firmly in the center of orthodox Christian faith. We have deep convictions concerning the clear teaching of the Bible, and at the same time, we allow room for differing opinions about the things that can be legitimately debated by orthodox Christians. We follow the thinking of Saint Augustine when he said: “In essentials unity, in non-essentials diversity, in all things charity (love).”

In other words, we do have boundaries, but our boundaries are broad and inclusive. We want people to be drawn toward Jesus, no matter how far or near they are coming from, and we don’t want anyone to lose interest in Jesus because we made them focus first on some boundary line that we thought was important.

We adhere to the central, historic Christian beliefs that have been believed by Christians “everywhere, always, by all.” (Vincent of Lérins) We confess the creeds and preach from the Bible.

We know that we do not have it all figured out yet when it comes to God, so we’d rather be humble than dogmatic. God is a mystery and we are trusting Him as we learn, grow, and seek to be formed into his likeness.

We are EMPOWERED by God’s Spirit.
We believe that God is alive and moving today. Therefore we depend on the Spirit of God in all that we do, we listen for the voice of the Spirit to speak to us personally, and we pray for healing and freedom for those in need.
