Thank you for visiting our website!

Welcome to Desert Pines Baptist Association! We are a Southern Baptist entity that consists of 21 Baptist Churches in Northeastern Arizona cooperating together to further the Kingdom of God. The Great Commission is our Passion!!

We also operate Burton Camp, a 30-acre facility that can be rented for family reunions, church retreats, and youth camps.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest at one of our member churches. Our churches are scattered from the high desert plains to the scenic White Mountains and range in size from very large to very small. Our thrust is missions and our hearts are set to reach the lost for Christ.

Please explore our website to find out more about us and our ministries. It is our hope that you will contact us if you need further information. Our office is located at 1016 So. Main St., Snowflake, Arizona, which is the central point between our churches' locations.

Please check back often to see what's new about our association of churches.

  • A Message from our AMS…

    Dear Fellow Laborers in Christ,

    As a new year is upon us, we are opening a new chapter in the Desert Pines Baptist Association. I truly believe the role of local associations and local ministry-minded friendships are going to be more vital than ever in the future. Hebrews 10:24-25 says, "let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." Obviously, you know that this is speaking to all Christians in regards to their local assembling church, but, what can it mean to pastors and Christian laborers?

    We know we are certainly closer to "the Day" then we were yesterday, but more evidently, we see the hearts of men grow cold, we see a hostility and a challenge to righteousness and our beloved religious freedom that has never been experienced by clergy in this country before. We need one another to encourage one another and to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, and I reverently and with trepidation add good ministry. This is where local associations are going to be vital in the future.

    I have found myself isolated in ministry before (perhaps more my perception than reality) and it is a scary place to be. Our work is worthy, but our work is hard. As a busy pastor myself, longing for more laborers in my own congregation, the last thing I want is to add to your already overflowing schedules. It is my hope that soon you will view participation in the Desert Pines Baptist Association as a blessing and an encouragement to you, that you will come to look forward to the camaraderie and fellowship with one another, all the while moving forward with God's Kingdom purposes. We can do this with grace, mercy and brotherly love. This is Baptist life, we agree on the essentials but leave room for grace if not on the secondary issues, at least in the tertiary and lesser issues. I look forward to working with you all, encouraging you and being encouraged by you as well.

    Pastor Eric Woods
