Who we are:
For over 50 years Bridgepoint church has been serving Boise and reaching out with the Gospel around the world. Our mission is to, “Love God, love people where they are, and help them follow Jesus”. This statement guides us in everything that we
do. We are a church that is serious about loving people where they are. We want to help people follow Jesus regardless of how old they are, what circumstances they are going through, or where they live. Bridgepoint is one church with two locations, one in
Boise and one 12 miles away in Meridian.
Where we live:
Idaho????? The only thing most people know about Idaho is potatoes and a blue football field. Boise is one of the fastest growing communities in the Northwest. It is regularly recognized as a top community to raise a family, and as a result it is young,
active, and vibrant.
Boise ranked No. 11 in Livability.com's list of 100 Best Places to Live. Forbes recently named Boise the #2 best city to raise a family in. We love it here!

support what Mike is doing, and see it as a healthy transition in his calling and career development.
