+ Our Story
In 1995, a pastor from Buhl, Idaho was led to the small farming town of Eagle, Idaho to plant a church as part of the Assemblies of God Decade of Harvest. The church began meeting in October at Eagle Hills Elementary School.
The church family quickly began to grow as deep relationships flourished, a heart for missions developed, and a passion for helping people in the community characterized everything. The presence of the Holy Spirit in the church’s services and gatherings became a highlight for all who joined.
In 2000, the old Methodist building on N. Eagle Road became available and the congregation bought it as their first permanent building. The growth continued and they doubled the size of the building. However, the growth quickly took over and the neighborhood couldn’t contain all the cars parking on the downtown streets.
During this time the congregation developed strategic discipleship ministries, compassionate outreaches, and generosity for evangelism locally and around the world. Next-generation ministry became a focus for the church in every way.
On Mother’s Day 2006, the congregation had their first service in the newly built building at the corner of Park Lane and Floating Feather (current building). The church struggled in the years following because of the economic collapse that destroyed the housing market in West Eagle.
In January of 2012, Pastor Brad Murphy came to lead the church out of decline and into a new season of health and growth. Building on the values of community, compassion, and next-generation ministry the congregation is growing and having a big impact in Eagle and around the world.
In 2018, Pastor Brad led the church to adopt a new vision, “Helping People Experience Jesus in a Life-Changing Way.” This vision has become the compelling voice of the Holy Spirit to guide us into the future. As we develop this vision, our heart is to equip empowered believers to serve the needs of hurting people through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Today, Eagle LifeChurch is experiencing growth through new conversions, water baptisms, Holy Spirit baptisms, and generous Kingdom Builders on foreign soil.

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
