Bay Area Community Church entered God's story in 1986 when Grace Fellowship Church in Timonium, MD had a vision to plant new churches. Under that leadership, 14 followers of Jesus began to meet and pray. God would use that group to become Bay Area Community Church. In 1987 BACC was founded and began gathering at Severn School, worshiping and proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. God added to its community rapidly and the church moved to larger and larger meeting places. In 2006 God provided a more permanent home for the Bay Area community at 884 Chesterfield Rd.
20 years into the story, while still experiencing growth, the leadership of BACC was moved to stop building Bay Area as a single church, and to begin moving outward, with a missional focus for planting new churches and establishing missional communities that would take the gospel out to the neighborhoods of Annapolis.
Today, Bay Area remains committed to making passionate maturing followers of Christ from here to the nations, and can be found doing so by God's grace at 884 Chesterfield Rd., in missional communities throughout Anne Arundel County, in three church plants, and on five continents.
