We glorify God bymaking disciples, equipping families, and serving the world, with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is the sincere desire of Bay Area Church to offer every person and every home the opportunity to experience restoration that only comes in knowing Jesus.
We are a church with a long story (over 130 years) pointing to the faithfulness of God. In recent years we have experienced the gracious, restorative work of Jesus Christ. Guided by the truth of God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit, together we are learning to turn to Him with our brokenness and He, according to His purposes, is being so faithful to renovate and restore. Our lives are changing because of Jesus. Our homes are changing because of Jesus. Our church is changing because of Jesus.
People changed by the gospel are the central mission of Jesus, and are therefore our greatest cause. We demonstrate gospel transformation by focusing our time and resources on preaching the gospel message to people in our circles of influence everyday.
Relentless and sacrificial love is Jesus’ conduit for the gospel, so we love people like He does. We demonstrate relentless love by our efforts to love those in our circles of influence, no matter what.
Service is the posture of biblical Christianity in the world, so we seek to serve others in practical ways. We demonstrate hands-on service by our consistent efforts to serve others, getting our hands and feet dirty, to be a blessing. No strings attached.
The Holy Spirit is at work in the world through many gospel-centered churches and ministries, so we partner with others for maximum kingdom impact. We demonstrate kingdom partnership through our strategic partnership with families and in our cultivation of gospel partnerships in our circles of influence in the Bay Area and around the world.
spirit and truth empowerment
We are empowered with the Holy Spirit and the authority of the Word of God for divine guidance and powerful impact in the world, so we walk in that power and guidance. We demonstrate Spirit and truth empowerment by expecting the Holy Spirit to work in power, and by our strict adherence to the truth and authority of the Scriptures in every aspect of our lives.
