About the Organization:

Canyon Ridge has always been a place where people from all walks of life can "come as they are" to draw close to God. We believe that no matter where you are in life, God has a next step for you. We'd love for you to join us on your journey as we "Join Jesus, to Bring Life to everyone, everywhere, and every day.”


CRCC was established in 1993.  The church was planted from Central Christian Church in Henderson, NV.  It began at the YMCA, and then moved to Cimarron High School until they purchased the land on Jones and Lone Mountain and built their Campus. Canyon Ridge has since planted The Crossing in the Southwest part of town and have started a Satellite Campus approximately 3 years ago (Centennial Hills). As God continues to work in them, they are starting another Satellite Campus in the area of Providence in February of 2018.  


Canyon Ridge is warm and friendly and offers a casual church experience with practical Biblical teaching for anyone who walks through their doors. With a family environment, diversity, and an authentic spirit, Canyon Ridge is a place to get plugged in and grow in your faith for anyone at any stage of faith.
