Statement of Faith

Good News Radio is a ministry helping to fulfill the great commission of Jesus Christ. Christ’s commission to us is: to proclaim the Gospel and to teach all things He has commanded us. Therefore, both an evangelistic and an educational thrust are part of the broadcast ministry of Good News Radio.

  • We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

89.7 FM KSGN is an independent nonprofit organization, not affiliated with any denomination or institution. The station is community supported by tax-deductible donations from individuals and business owners who give in the form of on-air underwriting. There's no church affiliation, government grant or even rich uncle! It is friends like you who believe in and financially support God's work through Family Friendly 89.7 KSGN.

The core purpose of the station has two parts: To share the Good News of the Gospel with those who have never heard it before; and to bring hope, inspiration, and encouragement to those who have.

This radio ministry began in 1958 as KNFP, a small college station built by professors and students at La Sierra College in Riverside, California. It was created as a lab so students would have real-life opportunities to apply what they were studying in public speaking, ministerial studies, physics and engineering. Over the years the call letters changed a couple of times and then the station went off the air for two years in the late ‘60s. Then, in 1979 the call letters were changed to KSGN. For a time, branding on the radio station corresponded with the call letters using the words – Keep Sharing the Good News.

In the early years the station had a format of classical music and news, then traditional Christian music and now features contemporary Christian music. The station's programming includes local traffic, weather and news as well as information about special events at area churches and community organizations.
