About Us

The Altar is a non-denominational Bible teaching Church based out of Coeur D’Alene Idaho. We welcome anyone to come and join us just as they are. Like Jesus, we invite all to come and be changed by the power of the Holy Spirit and conformed into the image of Jesus. We welcome all and condemn none, but we do teach what the Bible calls sin, and are adamant that Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved from our sins.

During Sunday morning services, we have nursery, child care, and Sunday School for grades K-6. We have a coffee shop, and also offer free coffee for people to enjoy and fellowship with one another. We love to worship God in song and enjoy both traditional hymns and modern worship music.

The Altar Church is closely affiliated to the Good Samaritan Drug and Alcohol rehab, and most Sundays we hear testimonies from those who have graduated the program.

We look forward to having you fellowship and worship the Lord with us!

“The most loving and Spiritual Church I’ve been to in a very long time. The People as well as the Minister and his Team were so loving, kind, gracious and sharing. Thanks be to God that they are all here in the World right now.”

P. Allen

“I’ve been a CHRISTian 40 years and have never found a Church that felt like home! A place where all are warmly welcomed yet are not spoken to through a “worldly filter.”  Pastor Tim Remington does NOT mince words when it comes to the word of God but does so in a living, genuine way!”
