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!


 Join us this Sunday!      Worship 9:45a      Church School 11:00a    

You are invited you to prepare food from a place you have been - or a place you would like to go.  We will vote for our favorites with cash, coins, and checks, with all proceeds going toward our mission trip to Puerto Rico.  (There will be a special award for Puerto Rican food!)  Whether you enter a dish or com eto sample all of the great food, please join us for a great evening.  Everyone is welcome!
