Home > What We Believe

Desert Stream upholds Christ and His church as the source of restoration. Whereas the evil one seeks to use sexual and relational brokenness to destroy lives, Jesus moves with powerful compassion to reclaim these lives. In Him, the sexually and relationally broken discover God’s order and are enabled to walk in it through repentance unto Jesus’ wholeness.

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, the final authority for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in right living.

We believe in one God, existing eternally in three persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, fully man and fully God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, buried and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.

We believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord frees us from the mastery of sin, and its consequences of death and eternal damnation. He assumed the penalty of death Himself, and enables us to live out of His resurrected life unto eternity.

We believe the Holy Spirit carries out this work of renewal in our lives, empowering us to grow in unity with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will.

We believe that the church of Jesus Christ consists of all those who know Him, regardless of denominational beliefs.
