The Des Moines Church of Christ is a multi-racial community of disciples spanning the Des Moines area. In September 2012, the DMCOC was planted by 18 faithful and devoted disciples from around the Midwest. The church has striven to keep its focus on every individual member being dedicated to pursuing and maintaining a close relationship with God. We believe that Jesus is the only way to come into that relationship with God, and our teaching is centered on His life, His death, His resurrection, His timeless teachings, and His ultimate calling to every man and woman to follow Him.
In light of the example set by the early Christians, every member of our congregation is encouraged to be devoted to reading, studying and applying the Bible in their every-day life situations. Although written thousands of years ago, we believe that the Scriptures are inspired by God and have tremendous relevance for our 21st-century lives.
In addition to believing that the Bible must be the standard for our lives, we emphasize the need for one-another relationships where deep friendships and a strong sense of family can be developed and maintained. Whether in one-on-one, small group or congregational settings, we use these relationships to encourage each other in what we hold to be both the greatest commandment and our greatest desire—loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
