First Baptist Church in Kiron, Iowa is the people, not the building at 107 Clover Street. The people come from all around this beautiful area, not just the city of Kiron. We believe we are “the church” all week long and meeting on Sunday is just one part of living as followers of Jesus. The bigger part is how our relationship with God impacts our relationships with each other and our community throughout the week. We think being a part of a church family can be priceless!

converge world wideWhile First Baptist is pretty much an independent church we think that there are some things we can accomplish better together with other churches than by ourselves. Therefore we are part of a group of churches known as “Converge Worldwide.” You can check it out here at the link to the right. We also think it is important to cooperate with the other churches in our community to share the truth and love of God together – and so we do.

We believe that God desires to have a personal relationship with every person.  We believe also that God doesn’t force this relationship on anyone – and, in fact, waits for us to take a step of faith to move it forward. 

Have you ever asked yourself these kind of questions?

  • What does God think about me?
  • Could I really know God more than as just “the Force?”
  • Could God really accept me after all the things I’ve done?

Of course our pastors would also be happy to talk with you about your relationship with God – feel free to contact them anytime!


Churches all have a statement of core beliefs based on the Bible. This is a brief summary of ours:

  • God is bigger and better than we can imagine and yet He desires to have a personal relationship with us.
  • The Bible is God's perfect guidebook for us.
  • Jesus is God showing Himself to us.
  • God lives in and through His followers today through the Holy Spirit
  • Grace is the only way to have a relationship with God.
  • Faith is how we begin and develop a growing relationship with God.
  • God works through all things, including difficulties in the lives of those who follow Him.
  • Heaven and hell are real places. Death is a beginning, not the end.
  • The church exists to increase the reputation of God and to serve people, just as Jesus served people.
  • Baptism and communion are two ordinances the Lord has given the church, and therefore an essential part of church life.
  • Jesus is coming again.
