Generosity is both an attitude and an action. We encourage every believer to express their generosity through faithful and obedient tithes and offerings. The ministry of Desert Springs is funded by God’s provision and obedience of our faithful church family. We honor God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Desert Springs remains beyond reproach. We adhere to the biblical principles of giving supported by the following scriptures. Deuteronomy 16:17, Malachi 3:10, Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
There are several ways to express your generosity at Desert Springs. While each may have its own advantages and/or disadvantages, they each allow for God’s work to be done as you are faithful to His calling to give back. All contributions are recorded and a tax receipt will be provided annually.
