POD is a kingdom minded community that invests in God's work beyond our own borders; both in the Coachella Valley and across America.


We aim to reach the lives that are in need of hope and encouragement in an everchanging environemnt. We present ourselves daily with an opportunity of sharing our Savior Christ in testimonies that cannot be refuted that He has changed our lives. 


Locally, POD has been a significant promoter of church plants in multiple areas of the valley.  POD has a burden to to reach and build community with other cultures.


The Pentecostals of the Desert is a church whose purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.


We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.


We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.


We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).


We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38.


We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Acts 2:4


We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11
