Hi and welcome to the Canyon View church of Christ website. We are a church family that believes in the power of Christ working through ordinary people accomplishing the extraordinary. We have a simple faith and seek the simple truths of the Bible and call ourselves, simply, Christians. We are lovers of the Word of God and do our best to model our lives after the Word Himself, Christ our Savior.
Were you searching for us purposefully, or have you just stumbled across us? Whatever the case, we’re thankful for God’s providence in bringing you our way. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this site and with all that the Lord is accomplishing in our congregation, and know that we’d love to meet you some day.
When you come to worship with us, expect to see reverence in action. We believe that Christ and his apostles did a great job in modeling what “church” should look like, and we do our best to model the forms we find in the New Testament. So that may look a little different than what you may be used to if you were raised in “church.”
On a typical Sunday morning you can expect to be greeted at the door and welcomed into our Sunday morning worship services at 10:00AM and our Bible classes at 9:00AM. Our worship service typically lasts for about one hour. In this time you be able to sing a blend of new contemporary songs with good classic hymns. You’ll be brought the Word of God through readings prayers and a sermon, and you’ll have an opportunity every week to commune with God and the church in our communion service.
For our families we offer many special programs to encourage spiritual growth and development in all ages with Bible classes for kids at 9AM and a special children’s worship time that is concurrent with our Sunday morning sermon. There is also a nursing room, a children’s training room and a monitored nursery available during our Sunday morning worship hour. For those who are deaf, we also offer interpreters in all of our Bible classes and worship times.
We don’t have a dress code during our worship times, but most like to dress their best for their worship. Although you’d feel comfortable in California Casual too. We know that worship is all about what is coming from your heart.
Canyon View church of Christ came into existence in 1994 when the Clairemont church came together with the Pacific Beach church. This was a wonderful example of the unity that Christ wanted his followers to model. Since then our family at Canyon View has grown steadily as new Christians are added to God’s family on almost a daily basis. We are passionate about the Great Commission mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew, calling Christians to go out and make disciples of all people by baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them how to obey the words of Christ.
We have a vision to reach the many in San Diego and abroad who don’t yet know of Christ’s love. We accomplish our task through God’s power and the work of many different ministry teams in our congregation.
In our efforts to model the first-century church, we may look very different than many other non-denominational churches. The most noticeable difference is that we worship together without musical instruments! We feel that this encourages everybody to be active in participatory worship. There’s no watching a praise team or a soloist here, for everybody is shouting praises to God. If you have never heard four-part harmony in congregational worship, you will be amazed.
If you come to worship with us, you’ll most likely get to witness somebody coming to Christ. We believe that a relationship with Christ starts when a person realizes that he/she is a sinner and that Christ has died for those sins. We also believe that baptism in its New Testament form is crucial to 1)obey the example of Christ (Mark 16:16), 2) in obedience receive the grace of God and the freedom from sin (Acts 22:16), and 3) receive the Holy Spirit who helps us grow to be more like Christ every day (Acts 2:38-39). Many other non-denominational Christian churches practice some form of baptism, but most likely not for these reasons
