About Us

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20

Johnston E Free is about. . .

glorifying God by loving Him, loving people, and sharing the good news.  We accomplish this through living out our Core Values.

Our Core Values

+ Christ-Centeredness

Keeping Christ at the center of everything we do and in how we live. The word of God, which points us to Christ, directs our thinking, teaching, and living. Prayer is our means of communicating with Christ, ensuring that we are guided by His Spirit and empowered by His grace. 

+ Redemptive Community

Living out our Christianity in community, motivated by the grace of Jesus. Relationships are a vital means of growth, care, and accountability as we seek to serve and love one another. God's grace through Jesus Christ motivates everything we are and everything we do.

+ Missional Living

Being on mission with Jesus in Northwest Des Moines and around the world. Engaging our city and our world with the Gospel in a culturally relevant way is our mission as individuals and together as the church. Love for our city and works of compassion enhance our opportunities to share the Gospel. 

Association
