At Desert Breeze we wish to do nothing “for religious effect” but rather to operate in natural, low-key, “non-hype” patterns that are real and non-threatening. We aim to speak, act and dress in ways in which our culture can respond positively. We reflect this through our distinct blend of casual coffee bar atmosphere, great music, practical messages, and low-key approach to finances.
Desert Breeze Community Church exists to provide a safe place where unchurched people can become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
In order to become fully devoted followers of Christ we encourage and provide for growth through the following five stages of Christian maturity: The Genuine Christian, The Growing Christian, The Giving Christian, The Going Christian, and The Glorifying Christian.
The starting point is to acknowledge our need for a relationship with God and to recognize that Jesus is the way to have that relationship. Through confession of sin and the Lordship of Christ we become Genuine Christians and become part of the family of God. “…To all who receive Him (Jesus), to those who believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of God…” John 1:12
Through the inspiration and teaching of the weekend services and the fellowship and teaching in small groups, we grow in our knowledge and love of God. We also grow through personal Bible study and prayer. “Continue to grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18
Christians who have learned to give their time, talents (abilities) and treasures to God by channeling them through a local church are expressing a greater understanding of what God has accomplished in their life. “God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other.” 1 Peter 4:10
“There are different kinds of service to God…together you form the body of Christ and each one of you is a necessary part if it.” 1 Corinthians 12:5,27
Christians who enjoy fellowship with God and others see beyond the four walls of the local church to do what we can to reach the unbeliever with the message of the good news of Jesus Christ. “Go, then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples…” Matthew 28:19 “…And you will be my witnesses…” Acts 1:8
The full measure of a Christian is living a Genuine, Growing, Giving, and Going life all for God’s Glory. They realize more than ever that we were created by God, for God, to give glory to God. God’s indescribable Glory and our unimaginable Satisfaction are one in the same pursuit. “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1Cor.10:31 “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
