Good News Bible Church began in 1973 as an evangelical alternative for the Iowa City, IA community. Good News is an independent, evangelical church and is a member in good standing of the National Association of Evangelicals.
Good News strongly emphasizes our Lord's command to "make disciples of all nations". This is done through an intellectually and spiritually stimulating School of Christian Living/Sunday School on a corporate level.
Individually, we are committed to training and discipling those in our congregation. Good News also has a strong emphasis on world missions and evangelism. The church runs an active missions committee, is committed to faith missions support, raises funds for missionaries, teaches on missions, and encourages its members to go!
Another distinction is Good News' support of home-schooling families. This in no way alienates the non-home-schooling family, and those pursuing other educational alternatives are equally supported.
Finally, we are seeking to impact the University of Iowa and Iowa City culture and worldview with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
