Welcome!  We are an American Baptist  congregation located in the heart of the Iowa State University community.  First Baptist is a mix of college students, families, current and retired ISU faculty and staff, and folks from all over the Ames area.  We strive for:

  • joyful worship that engages both heart and mind
  • deep fellowship that enriches our life together
  • compassionate service in our community and world


We are located in Campustown, one block south of the ISU Memorial Union.  We are "building an inclusive family of faith" and invite you to join us!

Hybrid Worship - in person and on Zoom!


Join us for worship on Sundays at 9:45 am!  Services are held in the sanctuary or outside as well as on Zoom.  Currently, everyone is asked to wear a mask for indoor services.  For outdoor services, we are asking those who are not vaccinated to wear a mask; masks are optional for vaccinated persons.
