Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 22, 1977):
In 1910, Bernard Ralph Maybeck (1862-1957) was asked to design "a church that would look like a church," built of materials "that are what they claim to be, not imitations." His answer, created of redwood, cement and other stock contemporary materials, is a masterpiece based stylistically on Japanese, Byzantine, Gothic, and Romanesque prototypes.
