With over 100 churches and 15,000 worshipers, we have organized into the Baptist Convention of Iowa for greater ministry.
The New Testament teaching and example is for churches to work together, it is a foundational principle that we can do more together than separately.
We pool resources for extending ministry to new areas and population segments within Iowa and around the world, mutual support, and disaster relief (1 Cor. 16: 1-4; Acts 11:27-30; Phil. 4:15-20).
We gather for celebration, fellowship, prayer, and training (Acts 14:23; Acts 15; Acts 20; Acts 21:17-19; 1 Thess. 3).

Our doctrinal statement is the Baptist Faith and Message.
