Romans 1:16.  The gospel... is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes...

  I Corinthians 15:3.  Christ died for our sin... He was buried...He was raised on the third day...

  Acts 4:12. there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.  That name is Jesus Christ the Lord.

John 1:12: But as many as received Him (Christ), to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.

When anyone receives Christ there are some things that will not remain in ones life because he or she is a new person in Christ.  Minus a life for sin that Jesus Christ has forgiven, one receives His power, commands, promises and new life. Now new hope is established on this sure foundation Jesus Christ. No more human effort, Jesus Saves.  Sins forgiven, peace with God. Anyone can have this!  What about you?

Our God’s Good News

Correspondence Student Goals

To bring men and women to Christ for Salvation

Disciple Them / Help them grow in Christ

See them rooted and grounded in Scripture

Encouraging them to obey and serve the Lord

Help them get connected to a Christ centered church


Freedom from addiction to sin is possible through Christ.    Most people are mistaken about what God can do because they do not know the Scripture nor the power of God.  Mark 12:24

Good News:  John 8:36: If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. Nothing is impossible with God Luke 1:37.  No one has ever been disappointed with Jesus, Psalm 22:5. 

1. Our Bible Correspondence School has been a long standing priority in High Desert Ministries.  This correspondence school has had long standing supporters and prayer warriors. It is staffed by volunteers who we believe love and has desire to serve the Lord. Only the Lord knows how many have been saved or encouraged to live a faithful life to our God. Many long term prisoners love the care and thoughtfulness of those who grade and make comments on their exams.  If you need a place to serve Christ you have an open door to serve the Lord among prisoners or parolees somewhere.
2. Bible Teaching and Preaching in Prisons and Jails is a great way to have personal contact with men who may be seeking a life apart from sin and various crimes against humanity.  We currently reach about an average of 75 men on a weekly basis on the inside.  Some fear such opportunities but those who fear the Lord more find blessing and satisfaction in obedience to God.   Some have an attitude towards prisoners but they all are people of similar nature with us.  We must remember that Christ died for our sin and He Himself has commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations. It is most wonderful to see God’s peace come when sin in their lives has been purified.

3. The Ranch will be a Godly Place where new believers can go.  The vision of this ministry is biblical and necessary for men of faith coming our of prison. Half way houses and other loose running ministries are a breading ground for more sin and dysfunction.  This Ranch will be a place to study the word for one year.  The goal of which is to ground new believers in the Word of God. The Ranch will be a place of discipline and order for the help of students. Most live an undisciplined life of disorder.  People are led along in the path of unrighteousness by deception.  Our Lord has so much to offer anyone.  Pray about your direct participation in this yet future ministry of This Ranch, be the Lord not come.

Prayer is important because without God our efforts are in vain.  We cannot serve Him well in the energy of the flesh.  We need the Spirit’s leading and wisdom.  We need His power and strength.  We must know His will and obey it.  We must operate in His manner and with His attitudes. Without Him we can do nothing.  Friday evening is our date  with God in prayer.  We pray in public  and have devotions together.
