A little over a year ago, God placed into the hearts of the leadership team to do a new thing (Isaiah 43) in Las Cruces. We felt God’s calling on our lives to plant a Gospel-centered, missionally engaging, Bible proclaiming, cultural relevant church in the heart of Las Cruces. We have been extremely blessed so far and we made a video documenting the ways God has used Desert Rivers in the lives of our people this past year.



We exist to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. As a result of this relationship, we endeavor to reach out to lost people, defeated believers and unaffiliated disciples in order to draw them into a vibrant spiritual environment where they can experience the saving, healing and restoring power of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to establish an atmosphere, based on God’s Word, of love, encouragement, enrichment and acceptance as we glorify and serve Christ at home and abroad.
