WHAT MAKES OUR CHURCH SPECIAL?

Authenticity

We strive to be real disciples of Jesus — loving Him, following Him, and serving Him with all our hearts.  We are honest about our weakness, grateful for his grace, and eager to grow stronger.

Family

We are not just a meeting place or a religious organization, we are a family.  We are devoted to accepting, serving, helping, and loving one another as Jesus intended.

We are one of the most diverse churches in Iowa — comprised of many different races, ages, occupations, educational levels, socioeconomic levels, and cities throughout the Metro Area. But we are completely unified by our common love for God and one another.

OUR STORY

DJI_0822.jpg

The Des Moines Christian Church (formerly known as the Des Moines Church of Christ) was planted by a group of 18 disciples from all over the Midwest. They had a dream of building a church of true disciples of Jesus from every age, race, and socio-economic background in Iowa. It is inspiring to see that dream becoming a reality…and we are far from done! We are still dreaming of bringing Christ’s love to every community and every generation in Iowa and beyond
