    What We Believe

    Plymouth Church is a vibrant, caring, active, thinking – and even questioning! – congregation in the heart of Des Moines, Iowa where all are welcome! During every worship service you’ll hear us say: “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are always welcome here.” We say it over and over again because we live it...not just in worship, but through hundreds of rewarding and enriching activities that happen in and around Plymouth all week and all year.
