Welcome to First Baptist Church


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. 

Throughout the week, we offer 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.

What to Expect

First Baptist Church is a congregation that celebrates Christ through the Fine Arts. Our congregational worship is characterized by traditional hymns and sacred music performed by the Chancel Choir. Our worship is periodically enhanced by instrumental ensembles, an adult hand bell choir and the children's choir.

The dress for worship at First Baptist Church is generally "business casual," although all are welcome regardless of their attire. Our greeters and ushers are available to provide direction, and are happy answer questions and assist our guests. Prior to worship, all members and guests are invited to gather in the Narthex for our Coffee Fellowship time.
