Why Soteria?

In a world filled with sin and pain, we all need a community that supports and encourages us. But conforming to our ever-changing culture will leave you feeling worn out and searching for hope and truth.

The hope you are looking for is found in God, His Word, and His people.

At Soteria, we believe every word of the Bible is true. We are a refuge of truth where you can grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

As a part of the Des Moines community since our founding in 1963, Soteria’s mission is to love God’s word, people, and mission and in so doing fulfill the Great Commission and Great Commandment.

Soteria is a church that:

Loves God’s Word

Learn how to apply and engage with God’s Word in relation to our lives today.

Loves God’s People

Grow together as a family and in community with other Christ followers.

Loves God’s Presence

Encounter God through worship, prayer and spiritual disciplines.

Loves God’s Mission

Share the hope of the gospel with those in our local community and beyond.

Join us this Sunday as we pursue God and His truth together.

I've been going to Soteria for about 8 years now. As someone not from the area originally, it was awesome to be greeted in such a friendly way and made to feel so welcome. Now that I'm a part of it all here, I'm grateful for all the work that goes into teaching the Bible in an understandable yet not 'watered-down' way. It's definitely a church home for me now and I recommend checking it out. If you choose to get involved in people's lives here, you won't be sorry!

In The Shadow of His Return

We know that Christ has promised to return. However, we don’t know when that will be. How then shall we live? This is what the books of 1&2 Thessalonians address, and what we find in these passages are glorious truths about the Gospel and the faith and love we ought to display as Christians awaiting the triumphal return of Christ.
