As a multi-generational, multi-campus, and multi-ethnic church, AV First desires to see people in the High Desert changed by the life-changing message of Jesus Christ and to help each changed person become all that God has created them to be.


First Assembly of God, Apple Valley Campus isn't just a place to attend church, it's a place to belong. Jesus loved people and that's our same heartbeat, to love people regardless of how they look, where they come from or what they've been through, and journey alongside one another as we become more like Jesus.

As a multi-generational, multi-campus, and multi-ethnic church, we seek to impact the High Desert and beyond with the life-changing message of Christ, and offer ministries to develop fully devoted followers of God.

So, whether you've attended church before or never set foot inside one, we invite you to come and be our guest... then family. Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you soon.


The following are the core beliefs of AV First based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
