Learn more about our community


Walnut Creek Church is a vibrant multi-site Christian community in the greater Des Moines area that is passionate about Jesus. We desire to love people practically and see all grow in a meaningful, rich relationship with God.

Walnut Creek Church was founded in 1985 and is a part of Great Commission Churches, a member of the National Association of Evangelicals. Great Commission Churches is a U.S. based fellowship of independent churches designed to equip, unite, and provide accountability to churches and ministries that have a desire to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.


Walnut Creek Church exists to glorify God by making authentic disciples of Jesus Christ who love and worship Him in all they do.


Lifting up Christ in our city and beyond.



We start everything we do with prayer, submitting ourselves to God and asking for strength. We know God is our Father and as His beloved children, He invites us to come and be persistent. We pray because we know God hears us, and prayer changes things.


We know life-changing power is in the seed of the gospel, not the sower. God wants to reach the whole world through His people, the Church, as we sow seeds which produce new life. We cannot expect to reach the city or the world unless we sow abundantly.


We desire to not only preach the gospel but also to see believers grow into spiritual maturity, loving and serving God. Christianity is not just an idea to be understood or a lifestyle to be lived, but it is a relationship with our Creator to be enjoyed.
