A Statement From the Church

We at Grace Baptist are deeply saddened by the terrible incident that happened at our church and to our community. Our hearts hurt as we pray for the dead, injured and their families.

Since this is an ongoing investigation and we have not been allowed in the church, we do not have many details to share. We do want to thank the San Jose Police Department for their rapid resonse and their diligence to secure the scene and find the perpetrator. We are also immensely grateful to our shelter staff.

This is what faith is all about. Faith is risking it all. We risk knowing both the rewards and the reality that there will be problems, pain, and conflict. We are called to this radical hospitality for those who need it the most.

This is our call, our purpose, our mission, and the way we love Jesus.


  • Pray for the injured guests and staff.
  • Pray for the perpetrator.
  • Pray for those guests and staff that were traumatized by this violent incident.
  • Pray for our congregation, our community, and especially thos that have been deeply affected.

Our deepest gratitude is to the staff of Grace Solutions for their service and dedication.

This is why we do the work we do. Matthew 25:35-37. For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. I was naked and you gave me clothing. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.

As a church community, we will continue to be with those that suffer. We will continue to advocate for better mental health and substance use services. We will continue to provide love, food, clothing, and shelter to those in need. We will continue to visit those in prison.

It is easier to build strong children than repair broken men. Frederick Douglas

Dealing with the COVID-19 Emergency

If you would like an invite to our Zoom meetings or a phone call from the ministry staff, please go to our contact page and let us know.

Due to public health concerns,  and in compliance with Governor Newsom’s order to SHELTER IN PLACE we are canceling in-person worship services until however long that order remains in effect. There are many worship options available to you still. God loved you before this crisis, and will always love you. When Jesus mentioned the sparrow’s fall, he didn’t say sparrows don’t fall, he said God knows all about it.

We take comfort in this. Even though you should practice Social Distancing to help combat the spread of disease, doesn’t mean you can ignore the fact that God not only loves you, but all the persons you know and will meet, or could meet. Love them, even from a distance of more than two meters or five feet, in whatever units you use.

During regular church times, we will have volunteers at the church to pray with any person who shows up. (Keeping physical distances of course.) We are also exploring options of video conferencing, but to be honest, a major section of our family does not have the option. These are folks who don’t have roofs over their heads, or whose computer still uses Windows 95, or who may not have ever had a computer or cell phone.

Actualizing the Kingdom of Heaven here in Silicon Valley

We are a downtown church that serves a very eclectic group of people. College students, homeless, the mental health population, families with young children, and the LGBTQ community, and aging persons too. This is the kind of people who followed Jesus around. In an atmosphere of diversity and dignity, everyone is welcome to be a part of this exciting congregation. If you ever felt you don’t fit anywhere else, come to Grace and you’ll find a home!

We hope you join us for our Sunday Worship Service 11:00am every Sunday! We also have bible study before service at 9:45 am. Following the service is a time of fellowship and refreshment with food donated by our members. Happenings at Grace are right here on our main page. If you would like more information about our church, our worship services, small groups, or volunteer opportunities, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
