Lake Hazel Bible Church is a wonderful family of believers located in southwest Boise, Idaho. Beginning as a small group Bible study in the mid 1970’s, LHBC was officially incorporated as a Church in 1976. For several years it existed as a small country
church on the outskirts of Boise. But over the last 10-15 years this area has experienced great growth and the church is now surrounded by hundreds of new homes and sub-divisions.
Currently, 160 men, women, and children call LHBC their home and are anxiously waiting to see who the Lord will provide to serve as their next Pastor! Our current Pastor came to us in January of 2007 as a full-time Missionary and will be leaving us this
January to plant a church in the Austin, Texas area. He is very much loved and is leaving on excellent terms with the church.
