ABOUT US



WHO WE ARE...

We are a congregation of God’s people who are growing in trust and obedience to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We are called here and now to be a worshipping, teaching and nurturing family. We are called to serve the lonely, the lost, the wounded, the despised, and the hopeless. We minister to all people. We urge all members to share the work and leadership of the church in genuine affection for each other and in loving outreach to those who are not members.

WHAT WE BELIEVE...

            We know that faith expressed by each Christian strengthens other Christians.  We share with others our experiences of God’s intervention in our lives.

            As a people who believe in the power of prayer, we pray together and offer opportunities to learn more about prayer.

            Music is a powerful conduit through which the Holy Spirit inspires us.  We take comfort in traditional hymns but we also offer many varieties of music to celebrate the diversity of our congregation.

            We promise to nurture children in the Christian life when they are baptized; therefore, we volunteer to teach Sunday School and understand ourselves to be role models for the children in our church family.

            We have learned through adversity that God is always with us and that the community of faith sustains us.

            The Spirit of God is present in our worship service.  We treasure both the traditions of our reformed faith and also new liturgies.

            We are a family.  We welcome each new person with joy.  We share fun and meals.  We grow spiritually by studying, working and praying together.

            We acknowledge that God has richly blessed each one of us with many talents which we use to help others and to reflect God’s glory.


OUR MISSION...

...to seek God's will by loving and glorifying God, loving our neighbors, being active disciples, and bringing others into fellowship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit


OUR HISTORY

On December 2, 1967 the first worship service was held at the DeSoto Youth Center

In August 1969, DeSoto Presbyterian Church was formally organized as a Union Presbyterian Church with 142 charter members

From 1970 until 1972 when the first service was held in the completed builing at the present location, services were held in the old Methodist Church on Beltline Road. It was also shared with Episcopalians while our church sanctuary was being built on land donated by The Dallas Extension Committee.

Beginning in 1984 and completing in 1986, we took on a great leap of faith by adding an office area, fellowship hall and Christian education wing.
