And this is eternal life, that they know you,
the only true God and Jesus Christ whom
you have sent.
From Jesus’ perspective, a disciple is one who follows Him. The Bible makes it very clear the only way to eternal life and a relationship with God the Father is through His son, Jesus Christ. Eternal life requires entering into a personal relationship with God in Jesus Christ. This gift of grace is accomplished when we admit our sin and place our faith and trust in Jesus, the one who gave His life for us so that we might have life eternal.
There is a growing population of people in the greater Bakersfield area who are in desperate need of the life transforming message of the Gospel. We believe God has uniquely positioned us in this community at this time to reach these people with the Good News of Jesus. Proclaiming the Gospel to those who do not know Jesus is a command of Scripture and one of our highest priorities and commitments.
We are very glad you're here and trust you will find what you are looking for concerning our church.
