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!
