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.









Isaiah 43:19

Why The Great Commission is Great

    “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been…

What is the Gospel Like?

Jesus, in Matthew 13 begins to tell numerous parables that consist of the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus, in verse 44 says:     “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that…

J.I. Packer – Knowing God Knowing about God is crucially important for the living of our lives. As it would be cruel to an Amazonian tribesman to fly him to London, put him down without explanation in Trafalgar Square and leave him, as one who knew nothing of English or England, to fend for himself,…

How did the church change from a movement to a building?

In AD 313, Constantine, soon to be emperor of Rome, legalized Christianity in the Roman Empire. Actually, he legalized freedom of religion in general. Before this edict, Christianity had been outlawed because Christians insisted that Jesus, not the emperor, was their king. Furthermore, they refused to accept any emperor as divine. Consequently, the church suffered…
