Get to Know Us


we Are...

Vertical Church exists as a healthy part of the body of Christ in Boise.  We live as a community with one another to be an example of Jesus Christ's love to a lost and fallen world ("Jesus Reaching").  We strive to create a welcoming atmosphere that is open to anyone seeking to learn more ("Bible Teaching") about the free gift of salvation offered to all who seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior ("Gospel Preaching"). 

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is God's written revelation to man and that "all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16

WHAT WE Teach...

We teach the Bible, plain and simple!  We believe the Bible contains God’s instructions for us to live and minister to one another.  All our sermons are taught verse by verse, which we believe is the best way to study the Bible and grow in faith.  Our preaching typically covers either whole books or topical series.  Our goal is that after a sermon is preached, you not only clearly understand the meaning of it, but you also are able to apply it to your own lives.  We believe that scripture is best understood within it’s historical and linguistic background.  That is how we teach verse by verse.  Our focus as we preach is to always point to Jesus.  We always proclaim the Gospel, every service!  We believe this is what Jesus commanded us to do, and it is our hearts to serve him.  We take seriously the charge that Jesus gives his disciples in Matthew 28:19 : “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,  baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  20 and teaching  them to obey everything I have commanded you.”


At Vertical, worship is something we do intentionally.  It is focused on Jesus Christ and what He has done for us.  The contemporary songs we sing are chosen not because they are popular, but because the lyrics have a deeper meaning.  This is also why singing hymns are important to us…we prefer content over the latest Christian Chart busters.  The worship team at Vertical comes together with their gift of worship to our Savior and invites us to join them.  Prayer is an important part of worship to us.  The worship team prays every week before they lead Spirit inspired worship that is focused on Jesus.  If you share our heart and would like to engage with us in worship, please, come join us on a Sunday morning.
