Welcome!

I was glad when they said unto me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.'
Psalm 122:1


Welcome to our website. Our prayer is that it will serve as a tool to share the great news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

It is the prayer of Crestwood Church that Jesus Christ would be at the core of every gathering, every project, every ministry, every home and every person.  Please join us in our prayer, and join our fellowship as we live life together, trying to live out God's purpose for our lives.  

We are located in the middle of Des Moines, on Forest Avenue, just west of Drake University and north of University Avenue.  Being centrally located, we desire to serve all of the metro area as well as our neighborhood. Click the map to find us.
