Christ's Church of the Valley: Who we are ...
Located on the west side of Bakersfield, at the south end of California's San Joaquin Valley, Christ's Church of the Valley (CCV) exists to equip our community with a Christ-centered world view, loving God and our fellow man. We embrace the church described in Acts 2:42-47 and endeavor by preaching, teaching and example, to influence this world for God. Simply put, our vision is, "Everyone gives; everyone serves!"

Approximately 110 miles north of Los Angeles, California, Bakersfield is home to over 345,000 people with 800,000+ accounted for in the greater Bakersfield Metropolitan area (this latter number making Bakersfield the 63rd largest metropolitan area in the country). Over 30,000 students are enrolled in Bakersfield's fifteen (15) public and three (3) private High Schools. Bakersfield is also home to Bakersfield Community College (18,000+ enrollment) and California State University, Bakersfield (7,000+ enrollment). CCV evangelizes and ministers all across the broad spectrum of these students: from Middle School students growing toward their own High School experience, through High School and College students having their initial, independent journeys into the world outside their homes.
