Why We’re Here
Our desire is that Bay Area Baptist would be a place that would Glorify God, Live in Community and Share the Love of Christ.
Psalm 150:6 tells us that everything that has breath should praise the Lord. We are further encouraged in Ephesians 3:21 that He would receive “Glory in the church.” It is our goal each time that we meet to honor God and lift up our savior Jesus Christ by diligently preaching and teaching His Word, participating in music that is worshipful and sincere and pointing those who are searching for the truth to the only source of value and purpose.
Live in Community
At the end of the second chapter of Acts we have a wonderful picture of what the church should be. In this accounting of the early church we find a close knit community of people with different backgrounds and life stories encouraging one another through mutual love and support. In a similar way, Bay Area Baptist is a diverse community of families and individuals of every age and background . This diversity provides support and encouragement regardless of where a person may be in their life. There is no reason for anyone to go through life alone and we work to foster an environment where the tools, insights and relationships necessary to really be what God has created us to be are available.
Share the Love of Christ
In Mathew 28:19-20 Jesus told His disciples that it was now their job to tell the world about His love for them and about the forgiveness of sins that He provided. With so much confusion and hopelessness in our world today it is a great privilege to be able to share the source of hope and forgiveness just as the disciples did. Central to everything that we do as a church is the desire to bring people into a relationship with the Savior.
