Our History

Glad Tidings was founded in 1913 by Robert & Mary Craig. These were great visionaries and faithful pastors moved by the power of God!

The Craigs founded the church in 1913.

Pastor Craig had a vision to see 100,000 souls saved in San Francisco, and almost a century later we are seeing that come to fruition. Glad Tidings Church is the “Mother-Church” to about 450 churches in Northern California, affecting over 100,000 souls every Sunday!

Glad Tidings Church has hosted major revivalists and renowned speakers, hosting such people as Amiee Simple McPherson and Smith Wigglesworth in its early glory.  More recently, visiting speakers include evangelist Pat Schatzline and Jackson Senyonga of Uganda.
