About Willow Creek Community Church

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.

Journey Through John - I Have Seen the Lord

JOHN 20:1-31, 11:25, ROM 6:4 | MAR 2-3 | STEVE GILLEN The tomb is empty. His followers are stunned. Then Mary Magdalene sees him, followed by most of the disciples, and finally, Thomas. The crestfallen, the terrified, and the incredulous have all become convinced: Jesus has risen! John makes his intentions clear. He’s shared this story so “that you may believe... and by believing you may have life.” For all of those who, like Mary, cry out “I have seen the Lord!” baptism is a symbol of the resurrection that has occurred in our own lives.
