First Baptist Church

First Baptist Church has long been a part of Campustown; we were founded in 1868 and moved from downtown to Lynn Avenue in 1950.  Our members are a mix of college students, families, ISU faculty and staff, and folks from all over the Ames area.  We strive for joyful worship, compassionate service, and a faith that engages both hearts and minds.

We are “building an inclusive family of faith” and invite you to join us!  You can check us out at
