Canyon Hills Assembly of God exists to inspire and equip people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We accomplish our purpose as we grow together:
- In Intimacy with God
- In Community with other believers
- In Influence in our world
We believe that our greatest calling is to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the neighborhood to the nations!
There are two primary ways we accomplish this. First, we believe God has entrusted us with an area of central California from the Sierras to the Central Coast. Over the last several years, we have planted and revitalized other campuses including CityView, Riverview, Kern River Valley, Wasco, Fresno, San Luis Obispo and City Center in the heart of downtown Bakersfield. Each of these campuses are supernaturally positioned to reach the lost.
Second, we are passionate about taking the message of salvation to the unreached around the world. To that end, a great deal of our energy and resources are directed toward identifying and reaching people groups around the world that have never had one chance to hear the Gospel. Canyon Hills is a church that takes God’s Word seriously. There are some commands in Scripture that we think are a really big deal. That’s why we emphasize feeding the hungry, caring for widows and orphans and reaching out to the broken and lost. We have discovered that when we take God at His Word, He blesses us for it.
One of the best ways to discover your part in our story is by connecting with us through Growth Track. Visit Guest Services to learn more about Growth Track where you can find out more about groups, find a place to serve and connect with our pastors.
We believe that the Bible is a sure foundation to build our lives upon. We are committed to unashamedly teaching the truth of God’s Word. We are dedicated to raising biblically literate believers. Methods will come and go, but our message will remain the same.
All people are loved by Jesus so we strive to create environments where people from different generations and cultures can worship together. We make no apologies for being specifically focused on reaching those far away from God. We desire to bring the broken home at all costs. We believe that our light is best seen in darkness.
It’s not government, academia or business. It is the church because it is to the church that God has entrusted the message of salvation, which truly changes people’s hearts and lives. And so we are passionate about building the local church from the neighborhood to the nations.
Servant leadership and showing compassion to those in need is a big deal to us. If you’re too big to serve then you are too small to lead. We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves. Every role is different but they are all important.
Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We see generosity as a privilege. We’re generous with our time, talents and treasure. We go first in our giving. God has given richly towards us, it’s our honor to give back to Him.
We are going to always do the best with what we have. We’re on time, engaged and prepared. We don’t do things half way. If we’re gonna do it, it’s to the best of our ability.
We are faith filled, big thinking, risk takers. When we sense that the Lord is in something, we aren’t afraid to step out of the boat. It’s our secret sauce!
