I love this place! It has been very influential in shaping me into who I am today!
I would never think of church the same! They make it fun, interesting, in a way that is attractive.

The best church I've ever been to!

I was introduced to Glad Tidings Church through Teen Challenge. I was at Teen Challenge and my life was out of control. There was something different about Glad Tidings and the people there. They were so nice to me, and I thought there was something wrong with that place. Then there was something special about it. I felt the Holy Spirit start to work in my life. The pastors at GT really care about you and make it their business to make you feel cared for and comfortable. No matter what color you are, Glad Tidings Church is a place where you can be yourself and let Jesus do the rest.

Glad Tidings Church is a place where I feel at home, where I am loved and accepted. It is a place where I belong. Glad Tidings has shaped and molded me into the man of God that I am today. Glad Tidings has shown me that it is not about how you look or the way you dress, whether you are poor or rich, or educated or uneducated -- its about loving God and making His love know. I look forward to more that God has for me here at Glad Tidings Church.

I started attending Glad Tidings about 5 years ago, and I??ve been an intern for almost a year. I began my journey with a strict desire to hold God and church at arm??s length. If I say that??s changed, it??s the understatement of the century. I have found so much freedom in God and continue to find more as I learn to listen to His voice. I think I??m just like anyone else: I doubt and debate, but I love and cling to Him. At the end of the day, I decide to trust Him, because He is in control. This is what I??m learning at Glad Tidings. I hope you find the treasured freedom God has for you.

I love love love this church. Being across the country from my family, I have found brand new connections here at GT. I have found the kind of friends that support me through everything that life throws at me. I have been able to get connected in so many ways, in the dance ministry, the college/ young adult group, I have even been part of a fashion show for one of our women's events. This place is just different when you walk in. Since I have been attending the last 5 years my life has completely changed. I have found new priorities and a new purpose for my life.

I have been at GT for the last 3 years and I LOVE IT! I have moved around a lot in my life and have always been looking for the best place to go and fit in. I think I??ve finally found that place in San Francisco, and the anchor has been Glad Tidings. It is a very diverse place that accepts people for who they are!
The whole premise of church being somewhere you go to get yelled at, and a place where the rules are more important than people has been completely overturned with GT. The church is all about loving Jesus and making His love known ?? since that is the goal, it allows people to just be themselves.
I have grown as a person and definitely in my faith-walk here at the church. I started attending Retrofit, now called nVision and I made the best friends I've ever had. Attending this church is unlike any other church I??ve ever been to, they WANT to talk to you and WANT to hang out with you. GT is a great place to make friends and learn about God.

When I moved from New York to San Francisco in 2003, I was searching for a home church. After visiting various churches in the Bay area I discovered Glad Tidings Church near Japantown. I was seeking a church that was multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, intergenerational and modern. Glad Tidings Church exceeded all my expectations.

I truly appreciate the church's focus on being Spiritual rather than Religious. Pastor Forest is a compassionate, caring and giving man of God. He is totally transparent to the congregation. He inspires and encourages so many people. I am grateful that I am a member of this church. The support that I get reminds me of a family that is now extended to San Francisco.

I should like to encourage everyone who is seeking a church to check out Glad Tidings Church. The singing, choir, fellowship, great coffee and hot chocolate and of course the Word is a sure bet that your week will prove to be positive.

Pros: Multi ethnic, racial and cultural diversity

Cons: Decicing which activity to partake

There's not much to say except that Glad Tidings really is my home. I never feel left out. The people are way friendly. God is clearly evident throughout the services. The music is fantastic and the sermons are preached in an understanding and open way. There are no closed doors for this church. They live out what they say.

I love this church! It is the friendliest place on earth. They are family. Worship is awesome! The pastors are real. God's presence is in this place! Very diverse, just like heaven will be. My children love the children's pastor... he has such a heart for God. Come check GT out... I'll save you a seat :)

This church is perfect for me. It has stirring music, thought-provoking sermons, friendly people and provides a meaningful sense of community. What I learn at Glad Tidings motivates me to be a better San Franciscan.

Pros: Not only a great church - they also have a cafe & parking!

.

Glad Tidings is a place where lives are changed. If you want diversity, great worship, outstanding sermons, real relationships, a great cafe and a personal touch from Jesus then perhaps GT should NOT be a possibility it should be A MUST. This place is AWESOME! Oh yeah, did I fail to mention that the pastor is a dynamic Man of God whose fruit matches his talk. Don't let me tell it, you should come and make an opinion for yourself. There is no one better to tell the story than the individual who has experienced it for him/herself. Jesus is truly doing something special at this place.

Ah, we've been attending this great place for close to 4 years now on a regular basis.

One of the things that got us hooked were the wonderfully nice people of all different cultures with their welcoming dispositions. It almost feels like the Christmas cheer is present there all year round. (oh, this was a pleasant surprise for me, they noticed when i wasn't there. +++)

Amazingly, we were attending this church even when it was a 40 minute trip from where we lived; it was definitely worth it to drive through the traffic to a place where you feel like you belong..

We started off going to the Sunday services and then we began hanging out on Friday nights with our group "Retrofit" which is for the 18-25yo singles. There are a whole bunch of other groups to be a part of even for the kids and the wee tiny ones to keep them happily occupied.
