These 15 Churches In Idaho Will Leave You Absolutely Speechless

Since the 4th Century when worship moved from private “house churches” to central houses of worship, churches across the globe have been exquisite works of craftsmanship, reverent passion, and artistic vision both inside and out. Idaho’s rural frontier background leaves no room for the expansive, ornamented churches of Eastern America or Europe, but we do boast a large number of churches throughout the state that represent our own unique history. Some are small, modest steeples that quietly stand in quaint beauty; others are large and glorious pieces of architecture that feature unique details and awe-inspiring interiors. All are beautiful.
