Light in the Desert Baptist

Mesa, AZ


Light in the Desert (LITD) is a church that still exists by God’s grace alone. It has been his good pleasure to sustain us over the years during some tough and tumultuous times. There have been many days that the doors should have been shut and the church left to die. But God would not allow it to happen. He, despite the church’s lack of gospel growth, simply sustained us. Now it is time to join him in what he has been calling LITD to become; a church that thrives and is deeply committed to loving him supremely, loving others sacrificially, and sharing hope through the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is why the members of LITD have with joy decided to become a replant. This decision is driven by a sense of God’s movement here and throughout the entire United States to revive dying churches; to resurrect churches to a new life of gospel growth. Every Sunday 17 churches close their doors to never reopen (info). LITD refuses, by God’s grace, to let that happen and through surrendering to God’s authoritative word, He is beginning to breathe new life into us.


Project Progress & Features


There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.


LITD strives to be a healthy church focused on Scripture as our authoritative guide that faithfully points us towards Jesus. Here at Light in the Desert Church our desire is that you will encounter a loving multi-generational church that reflects the light of Jesus to those around us. Hope to see you this Sunday!
