Doing God’s will by following the example and teachings of Jesus Christ through faith, word and action.
Who We Are
Willow Creek Presbyterian Church is a community of Christians drawn together in faith, caring and Spiritual commitment. Our life together is rooted in Scripture through a shared devotion to learn, to understand and to live our lives according to the Word of God. Through prayer, nurture, fellowship, study and worship we are a community of believers. Individually and collectively, our caring and our connections deepen our faith, inspire our vision of the power and purpose of God in our lives and in our world, and call each of us to be active and earnest in our caring for each other, for our local community, the wider church, and the greater world.
What We Do
We seek to walk humbly with the Lord, to keep a daily time of prayer, Bible reading and reflection, to attend worship faithfully – usually at Willow Creek, to make a financial contribution, as the Lord leads, to the work of Willow Creek, and seek to find ways to share in the life of the community of faith which is Willow Creek.
We seek to discover and affirm our gifts through the fellowship of the Christian community, and express and offer those gifts in the service of Christ; to engage on a regular basis in the renewing of our minds through bible study, and other areas of Christian thought; and to deepen our lives of prayer and awareness of God’s purpose.
We seek to accept a responsibility in the work and mission of the church; to offer our affirmation, support and love to our brothers and sisters in the service of Christ; to become informed and involved in a ministry of justice and mercy to those outside Willow Creek.
We seek the support and forgiveness of those with us on this journey when we stumble or fall in these expressions of discipleship, and to bring the same to others in their need.
Word About Welcome and the Presbyterian Church USA
The incarnation of God in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us our mission and understanding of membership. We become active members of the church through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and acceptance of His Lordship in all of life. We believe that any act or statement of injustice, discrimination or violence works against the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Accordingly, Willow Creek Presbyterian Church welcomes into full membership persons of every race, culture, economic status, age, ability, gender and sexual orientation. We pledge to work for change within the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. to obtain every privilege of membership for all. Confessing our own weakness, we commit ourselves to Christ’s ministry of love, justice and peace.
