Our Story

How it all started...

GoodNews Riverside started in Corona, California in 1981.
Our original roots are from the Catholic Charismatic community in that city and our theological training took place at Melodyland Christian Center in Anaheim, Ca.

We are a group of believers in Jesus Christ and have lived our lives running our race with Jesus always in mind.

GoodNews is made up of several mature pastoral teams who have lived their lives in the service of ministering to others.

Our deepest desire is to equip other believers to:
Know their Savior
Walk obediently in His Ways
Move in the gifts that Jesus has given to them

1 Corinthians 9:24 (AMP): “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run [their very best to win], but only one receives the prize?Run [your race] in such a way that you may seize the prize and make it your

Expanding the vision...

Jesus said in John 10:27 "My sheep hear my voice; I know them and they follow me.
Equipping believers to Know God is at the forefront of GoodNews Riverside.  Having a passionate love for Jesus, and living a life completely committed to Christ is our goal.

We believe that every believer in Jesus, regardless of age, can hear His Voice and follow Him. With that in mind, we are a church that believes in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  We raise our children and young people to know God, serve Him and run their race for their entire life.

Where we are headed...

GoodNews has always believed in the transforming power of Christ. People who have been changed by the Gospel, will change a city.

You are the light of the world--like a city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matt. 5:14
