Grace Bible Church of Boise is a 200250 person church located in beautiful southwest Idaho, serving our community since 1991.
Our church body is comprised of committed believers who engage in deep fellowship and love, effectively ministering to one another. We are a missions focused church where the leadership and body support Christ-centered gospel outreach locally and globally. We have a loving, grace-filled, and generous body comprised of a strong core of long-time members alongside newer members due to the rapid growth of the surrounding area.

We are prayerfully seeking our next Senior Pastor who has a similar approach to ministry. Ideally, our next candidate will lead with a shepherd's heart and will have a deep conviction to teaching the whole counsel of God and who understands that gospel change happens through faithful ministry. As a church body, we are looking forward to our next pastor, who will continue to build on our solid foundation while leading us into the future.

About Grace Bible Church of Boise:

Bible Interpretation & Preaching
We believe in the literal, historical, grammatical, contextual method of interpretation, which means the Bible is to be interpreted literally, unless there is clear reason in the context not to do so. Each text is to be interpreted in light of its near, far, and historical contexts, giving priority to the original languages, grammar, and inspired sentence structure.

We practice Expository preaching which uses objective Bible study principles to extract from biblical texts what the original author meant for his original audience to understand by he wrote i.e., the interpretation of a text.. We believe sequential expository preaching through books of the Bible is, in general, the best approach and should be the main way of preaching. There are other kinds of preaching such as topical, that are sometimes necessary and helpful, but should not be the main source of teaching and preaching.
