Our emphasis is to have a church living where each member is built into a vital, spiritual community characterized by love for Christ and one another (John 15:9).We primarily meet in homes and small gatherings throughout the week for prayer, fellowship, and to study the Bible (Acts 2:46-47).
Please contact us so we can let you know of a local home meeting in your area.
On the Lord’s Day at 10:00 AM, we gather in a larger group in the meeting hall of the church in Boise - Downtown Boise- for worship and ministry, to build up one another through speaking in mutuality (1 Cor. 14:26, 4) and at 5:00 pm to partake of the Lord’s Table (Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 10:16-17).
We conduct our gatherings in English and Spanish.
Sunday, the first day of the week, is referred to as “the Lord’s Day” in the Bible (Rev 1:10). It stands as a symbol of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus (John 20:1, Mark 16:2). It is the day on which the early church met regularly for the breaking of bread and the speaking of the Word. (Acts 20:7, 1 Cor 16:2).
“And He took a loaf and gave thanks, and He broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is My body which is being given for you; do this in remembrance of Me. And similarly the cup after they had dined, saying, This cup is the new covenant established in My blood, which is being poured out for you.” (Luke 22:19-20)
"And on the first day of the week, when we gathered together to break bread, Paul conversed with them…and he extended his message until midnight."
The prayer meeting of the church is one of the most important meetings believers can participate in. As the church, we come together to pray every Tuesday. Our prayer meetings are normally held in the meeting hall. We all come together in the same place to pray with more impact. Sisters meet also in their homes for prayer.

“And when he became aware of this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John, who was surnamed Mark, where there was a considerable number assembled together and praying.” Acts 12:12
“These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.” Acts 1:14
Prophesying mainly means speaking the Word of God. We have no designated minister to prophesy because the Bible tells us that we all can prophesy. During each week members are encouraged to read The Holy Word for Morning Revival and share what they enjoyed. (For information on what message we are reading this week, please click here Anyone may share, however, anything they have enjoyed of God.
“For you can all prophesy one by one that all may learn and all may be encouraged.”
–1 CORINTHIANS 14:31
Our small groups are at the heart of our church life and community. Small groups are characterized by a vital spiritual pursuit, an intimate loving atmosphere, and a committed goal of spiritual fruit-bearing (John 15:12-17). Groups organically form and develop across the city, across all ages, and across all ethnicities.
While we treasure the larger Sunday gatherings where the whole church comes together, the small groups add a more personal and daily component to our church lives. The New Testament frequently uses the term “one another”, and it is through our small groups that we practically enter into a “one another” living where we:
“love one another” (John 13:34)
“show honor one to another” (Rom. 12:10)
“be of the same mind toward one another”
“greet one another” (Rom. 16:16)
“bear one another’s burdens” (Gal. 6:2)
“bearing one another in love” (Eph. 4:2)“
speaking to one another in psalms and hymns” (Eph. 5:19)
“teaching and admonishing one another”
“exhort one another each day” (Heb. 3:13)
“consider one another so as to incite one another to love and good works” (Heb. 10:24)
“blessing one another” (1 Pet. 3:9)
“be hospitable to one another” (1 Pet. 4:9)
