The History of Hope Lutheran

The Board of Missions of the Northwest District determined, during the year of 1956, that a second Missouri Synod Lutheran congregation was needed in Idaho Falls to serve the needs of the people and to spread the Word of God. Worship services began in 1957 with the first sermon based on 1 Corinthians 2:2, “For I am determined to know nothing among you, save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”  Attendance was 24 – 11 adults and 13 children.

  • Always dedicated to Christian education over the years, Hope Lutheran has supported a Christian day school from the 1959 class of 26 students (1st – 3rd graders) to today’s students in grades K-6, pre-school and pre-K.

Our beliefs

at Hope Lutheran Church

Together with the universal Christian Church, we here at Hope Lutheran teach and respond to  the love of the Triune God: The Father, creator of all that exists—both seen and unseen; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die  for the sins of all humanity and rise to life again in a stunning victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who  creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments (Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper).
