We have an elder-led, staff-managed, and congregation-approved leadership structure. Dr. Brian Haynes has been the Lead Pastor of the church since 2010.

Not only do we have 1,100+ joining us to worship each week, but we also host nearly 1,000 PreK-12 students in our on-campus private school each day during the school year. Bay Area Christian School has been faithfully educating students for over 50 years.

Our DNA:  Kingdom. Disciple. Society. Church. (KDSC)

These are the foundational building blocks that help direct the vision of Bay Area Church and Christian School:


  • The Kingdom of God submits to the rule and reign of Jesus Christ. Wherever the will of God is being done, the Kingdom is manifested. We are to “seek first the Kingdom of God” so that His will might be done “on earth as it is in Heaven.” In order to pursue God’s Kingdom, you must first FOLLOW JESUS.


  • A disciple is a follower of Jesus who hears and obeys what He has taught and as the Holy Spirit leads. Each disciple is a “citizen” of God’s Kingdom. We help equip disciples by encouraging everyone to CONNECT TO COMMUNITY.


  • Society consists of various domains where people live and work. Our primary place of service is the domain in which God has placed us every day. Disciples, then, serve as ambassadors for God’s Kingdom to the world so that others may come to know Him. We provide training and opportunities so you can ENGAGE YOUR WORLD.


  • The Church is God’s people, a spiritual family. We are His agent of transformation in the world and the display case for His greatness. Jesus said, “… I will build my Church,” and He does this by drawing people to Himself who are far from God. Church is the result of kingdom-minded disciples engaging society.
