Our vision at Citygate is to plant churches in the U.S. and abroad, to establish Christian schools and develop the headquarter church in Bakersfield. It is our goal to train and send out members on missions and to establish orphanages in developing countries.

Our mission is to bring people into the family of God, develop them to be Christ-like, equip them for their ministry in the church, and mission in the world, to the glory of God.

It is our desire to provide refuge for the hurting and neglected and to share the uncompromised gospel, in a spirit of love, with the lost. We develop members into spiritual leaders via study groups, seminars and leadership training.

We value diversity and encourage unity and value different personalities using their gifts to build up the body of Christ that fellowship at Citygate Christian Center.
