The message of Jesus is summed up partly in the Sermon on the Mount, and partly when he begins his ministry and quotes the passage from Isaiah: ‘I have come to set free the prisoners and restore sight to the blind.’ And certainly, his mission is also to bring hope.

The Good News Bible Church – Ghana was started as a Bible Study Group by Rev John Bergen, a SIM missionary in the 1960s. It met on the premises of what is now Challenge Enterprises of Ghana at Kokomlemle, a suburb of Accra. Many Ghanaian Christians were attracted by the solidity of evangelical Bible teaching at that time. As the number outgrew their place of meeting they moved in 1970 to the auditorium of Accra Technical Training Centre where the group was called Kokomlemle Bible Study Fellowship.

It became apparent that some of the new converts that joined them had no affiliation with any Church. Therefore, the leadership decided to turn the Fellowship into a Church in order to nurture the new converts.
