What We Believe


Revealing Christ: “Reaching out with care and compassion to people of every age in the Magic Valley and beyond with the life-giving message of Jesus Christ.”

Reconciling People to God Through Christ: “Restoring friendship and peace to our relationship with God and each other through the transforming love of Jesus Christ.”

Reproducing the Ministry of Christ: “Recognizing the unique gifts and talents of God’s people, teaching and encouraging them to share the good news of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.”


We value the authority of the Bible. Therefore, we accept it as God’s Holy Word given to us as our rule for belief, our moral code for living, and our source for preaching and teaching.

We value sincere, earnest prayer. Therefore, we seek a personal, continual communication with God. Prayer is an essential element in coming to know God and receiving His power and direction for our lives.

We value inspirational worship. Therefore, we purpose to bring all generations together into a personal and shared experience of the presence of God by offering our praise, adoration, and devotion to Him.

We value genuine Christian Community. Therefore, we are committed to knowing and loving one another. This commitment is best expressed and nurtured through small group relationships of encouragement and accountability.

We value servant leadership. Therefore, we are seeking to fully surrender to God our time, talent, and resources, striving to live lives devoted to Christ-like service.

We value all people. Therefore, we encourage and support Christian missionary evangelism, education, and compassion at home and around the world.

We value ministry excellence. Therefore, we seek to honor God by giving Him our best in all we do. We commit ourselves to unity, quality, and faithfulness.
