At Desert Spring United Methodist Church, our purpose for existing is clear: we develop deeply committed followers of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our measure for success is also clear: deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ are people who are growing in their love for God, their love for others (both within and beyond our church), and in ministry that transforms the greater community. Everything we do at Desert Spring involves developing people as deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ. As such, everything we do provides an opportunity for people to grow in: - Love for God - Love for others - Ministry that transforms the greater community Our success in developing deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ will be evident in a persons' growing love for God, love for others, and in ministry that transforms the greater community. People who love God regularly participate in the worship of God, attend to God's Word as contained in Scripture, pray often and give of themselves according to God's will. People who love others show their love in action through fellowship and support: praying for the needs of others, giving witness to our faith in word and deed, reaching out in concern and meeting the needs of others. People who engage in ministry that transforms the greater community give of themselves for the glory of God in ways that bless other people and makes a purposeful difference in this world.
