In 1977, Baptist Mid Missionaries Gerald and Norma Baker moved to PEI, with the goal of seeing the establishment of an Independent Baptist Church in the Charlottetown area.
God in His providence saw the church organize on June 4, 1978. The church was then meeting at the Glen Stewart School in Stratford, PEI.
The following September the newly organized church purchased property on the Brackley Pt Road. In April, 1980 the church accepted the offer from the Central Bedeque Fundamental Baptist Church that their former building be moved to the new property in Charlottetown. The first Sunday service in the newly reconstructed building was held in October 1980.
In the spring of 1984, Pastor Baker resigned to go to a new ministry. With the help of Baptist Mid-Missions the church contacted Glen Gardiner to consider taking the pastorate. By September of that year Pastor Gardiner, his wife Karen and son Brian arrived, their two daughters were attending Bible College in the USA.
In May of 2000, Good News Baptist Church graduated from mission status to full autonomy.
Four years later, Pastor Gardiner retired from full-time ministry, Mark Reid from Calvary Baptist Church, South Brookfield NS candidate the church. Good News Baptist Church issued a unanimous call to Pastor Reid. In July, Pastor Reid, with his wife Diane and daughters Katie and Amy, arrived to become the church's third Pastor.
In January 2016 the church moved to 199 Patterson Drive in the Hillsborough Park Community Centre to grow the word of God in the Hillsborough Park area.
May God continue to bless, as we by His grace seek to minister for His Glory in the Charlottetown area.
