About Us

If you're new to the community or are searching for a church to call home, First Baptist Church of Greater Des Moines invites you to take time to visit.

What to Expect

We believe that worship is the ultimate priority of the Church and our appropriate response to the self disclosure of God. 


Each Sunday, we gather at 9:30 a.m. for a time of singing, prayer, giving and reflection. Following worship, all members and guests are invited to gather in the Narthex for coffee and fellowship.


The common dress for worship at FBC is business casual, although everyone is welcome to come as they are. If you're unable to attend service or would like to review past messages, sermon podcasts are available for download.

All Ages Welcome!

Throughout the week, First Baptist Church offers an assortment of programs and ministries for the entire family.  We pride ourselves on being a family of faith located in the heart of Johnston, Iowa.
