Willow Creek Community Church holds to a core belief that people matter to God. They matter to us, too. With an understanding that Jesus Christ came to earth to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10), But Jesus went beyond a mere rescue mission; he transformed lives. Jesus came to redeem this broken world, and it is on this core belief that Willow has built its mission statement: to turn irreligious people into fully devoted followers of Christ. Willow is committed to carrying on Christ's mission by reaching out to those who are far from God, coaching those who follow Christ by equipping them for their spiritual journey, and unleashing unprecedented levels of compassion and justice into our broken world. Weekend messages are a key component in reach out to others and encouraging and inspiring them along their spiritual journey.
Jesus washed His disciples’ feet in order to show him a different way – a way of service and humility. But where did this tradition start? What did it mean for Abraham to wash the feet of the three men who visited him at Mamre before Sarah and he were promised a son? This week we’ll explore the relationship between showing hospitality and blessing – and how the custom of feet-washing is still meaningful for us today.
