We are so glad that you're taking a few minutes to learn the heart and soul behind Canyon Hills. Our mission & vision drives us and everything we do as a church flows from it. 


While you can learn a lot about our church online, there's really nothing like experiencing it for yourself in person. We invite you to plan a visit so that we can get to know each other better. Visit the page linked below for all of the details about what in-person visit is like. 


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.


The Gospel is our priority.
Compassion is our calling.
The local church is the hope of the world.
Honor is our culture.
Generosity is our privilege.
Excellence is our spirit.
Daring faith is our edge.
