CHURCH DESCRIPTION

As a church that has been using the gospel to build bridges with the people of Boise since the mid-1950s, Bridgepoint Church lives up to its name.

Humility is demonstrated at every level as the church has gained a reputation of being “the church that serves.” There is a strong core of staff and volunteers who embrace its mission of changing their world through the power of the gospel.

Worship plays a key role at Bridgepoint. The church is committed to becoming a community of engaged worshipers. The planning and execution of its services is not showy yet reflects a high standard of excellence and draws families of all ages.
