Our Story

BayMarin began as a dream in the hearts of a few people over 30 years ago. From its beginnings, this was a church whose DNA was about connecting with the unique culture of Marin.  

Marin is a highly spiritual community that is also highly skeptical of typical Christianity. As a result, the shape of BayMarin throughout its history has been innovative and concerned with inviting each of us to become more fully human. From its earliest beginnings as a church, BayMarin focused on close relationships in its small core group, to its days of rapid growth through a more contemporary style (featuring newer music and drama on Sunday mornings), to its current approach that seeks to combine the best of the past with a focus on action and contemplation. BayMarin has always been on the move and we recognize the need for both restful union and active union in the world.

One thing that has remained the same, however, is a desire to be followers of Jesus. A Jesus centered approach to a new kind of Christian expression has always been the hallmark of BayMarin.

Today, the church continues to desire to connect deeply with a progressive culture with the timeless wisdom of Christ. Through our one-of-a-kind kids' program, our student ministries, our adult spiritual formation groups, our strategic outreach experiences, and of course, our creative Sunday worship gatherings, BayMarin continues its journey as a group of people seeking the best way to answer Jesus' call to follow him.
