Who we are

First Baptist Church is an open and caring family of faith where worship is central and faith engages both heart and mind. We are warmly ecumenical, delight in our diversity, and cherish our Baptist heritage of freedom. We are called by Christ to share God’s love with the campus, community, and the world.

As we seek to follow the way of Jesus, we welcome all people to fully participate in our fellowship: all ages, colors, backgrounds, political affiliations, and physical and mental abilities; male and female, gay and straight, rich and poor, single and married. We are all God's children, and all are welcome here.

Leader Bio:
Rev. Dr. David Russell came to us as pastor in 1999 after previously serving as a pastor and campus minister in Illinois. A native of Evansville, Indiana, he is a graduate of the University of Evansville and received his Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary in New Brighton, Minnesota.

Dave serves in the denomination as president of our region's Minister's Council and on the boards of Mid-American Baptist Churches and Iowa Religious Media Services. He also works with the Center for Creative Justice, where he currently serves as treasurer.

A big sports fan (especially basketball!), he enjoys computers, church history, travel, and riding his bike. Dave's wife Susan is also an American Baptist minister who has served on our staff. Dave and Susan have an adult daughter and share their home with 'the boys' - their dog Rudy and cat Harry.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Teach us to serve Thee
Teach us, good Lord, to serve Thee more faithfully; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labour and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do Thy will, O Lord our God.
