"AT it's core, bay church is a family.  It's a group of amazing people who are committed to learning to love god and love each other in real ways."  Pastor Seth

Our Story

In June of 2009, Pastor Seth & Maria Waters moved to San Francisco with dreams of building a community of Christ followers passionate about living out the love of Jesus in revolutionary ways.   After one and a half years of meeting in a living room and a local conference center, Bay Church was officially started in January of 2011 in the UA Stonestown Movie Theater in San Francisco.  Since then Bay Church has grown from just a small group of people to a movement that is passionate about encountering the heart of God and learning to live out the revolutionary love of Jesus.
