About The Church:
First Assembly began as a tent-meeting in the early 1920's in downtown Bakersfield, California. We currently have an average Sunday attendance of about 800, last year we gave over $800,000 to U.S. and world missions, we have a Pre-K to 8th grade Christian
School of over 700 students, and a 70 unit retirement community on our 24-acre campus.
Over the last 11 months, we have been in the process of discovering the unique vision God has for our church by working with a leading ministry and church consulting group. It has been a challenging and rewarding process in helping discover the mission, values,
strategy and vision for the future. Our newly defined mission statement is "Helping broken people become Spirit-filled followers of Jesus who help broken people.” We accomplish this through a three-fold strategy of WORSHIP, BELONG, & LOVE.
