About Gracepoint Berkeley Church

Gracepoint Berkeley is a multi-ethnic and Asian-American church serving the Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco communities with ministries for working professionals, singles, couples, college students, youth, and children.

Our church began in 1981 as a college-focused ministry. Although college ministry continues to be a major focus, we have, over the years, grown to include all ages, from children and teens, to married couples. Our congregation is comprised predominantly of Asian Americans but is becoming more multi-ethnic each year. We adopted the name Gracepoint Berkeley because this is the place where so many of us experienced God’s grace. We hope to be a place of grace for many more in the years to come.
