Our Story

Whitney began over 60 years ago as a church plant in the "suburbs." Whitney has grown as Boise has sprawled. The first services were held in a garage at our present location. Since then we have built, expanded and remodeled several times. Currently we are a growing body of over 200. We are a church of active faith committed to humbly serve and glorify God in all we do.

In our desire to reach people with the Gospel in the Treasure Valley we set out to not just build one big church but to plant many churches. We praise God for the opportunities we've had to partner locally in planting Meridian First Baptist, Lake Hazel Bible, Columbia Heights Baptist, and our current effort in North Nampa; the Involve Church. It has been a privilege for us to send many from our ranks into these church plants. 

Our desire for outreach on a global scale is also a mainstream part of our following of Christ Jesus as a body of believers. We are blessed to partner with many missionaries on the field as well as the many that God has called from Whitney.  

We believe one of our greatest resources is the story of how God has worked in many lives over many years. From the nursery to the grave, the story of how God has saved us and grown us needs to be passed on. We own this vision at Whitney, as many have stayed the course throughout their lifetime.  Instead of hopping from one church to another, we see the blessings of generations worshiping, growing and loving one another, gathered together to humbly honor and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
