The vision of Fellowship Baptist church is to make disciples in the heart of Des Moines and around the world by preaching and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are centrally located; just south of downtown and a few blocks from the state capitol.

FELLOWSHIP MEANS: TOGETHER
Hello from Pastor Dan
Jesus summarized His message this way: These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full (John 15:11). So many people are chasing the "American Dream" of perfect jobs, kids, money, or security. True joy is found in knowing and serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
Preaching God's Word
Listen to this week's sermon or another message from a past series. You'll be encouraged to believe what God has said and live it out in everyday circumstances.
At Fellowship, we emphasize expository preaching.
Every week we hold a "Bible-Expo." Really!
We'd love to explain that briefly:
Fellowship loves kids! We have lots of opportunities for every member of the family to grow in a safe environment:
- Nursery (age 0-2) - Available during every service.
- Sunday School (all ages) - 9:30 am, Sundays - Classes are divided by age, but every class learns the same theme so you can review with your kids what you study in-depth in the adult class.
- Children's Church (age 3-5) - 10:30 am, Sundays - All children are welcome to stay with their parents for the entire worship service or attend Children's Church when it is dismissed right before the sermon.
- Kids 4 Truth (age 4 - Grade 5) - 5:30 pm, Sundays- This exciting club includes songs, games, a snack, and lessons from God's Word. Kid's 4 Truth uses a "catechism" approach - students memorize portions of Scripture and answers to important questions about the faith.
At Fellowship, we believe the Bible is God's Word. In it, He tells us who we are, what we were made for, and where we are going. The sad news is that we have all broken His law and deserve His righteous judgment. The Gospel is the good news that God sent us a rescuer to atone for our sin - Jesus Christ; fully God and fully man, who died on the cross in the place of guilty sinners. The Bible calls on all people to repent of their sin and believe in Jesus as their Savior.
One of the most popular verses in the Bible proclaims that message: John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
The Bible tells us the greatest news of all time and it is also the rule and measure for all questions of life and faith at Fellowship.
