This article is an attempt to supplement John Howard Yoder’s thesis in his book Body Politics that the Church is in fact a polis , and to highlight the act of footwashing as another New Testament practice that is still observed in Churches today, especially Pentecostal ones. The article proceeds by engaging in a conversation with Yoder’s work on the political import of Christian practices and specifically addresses his indifference for footwashing. It then lifts up this practice with the intent of prompting Pentecostals to think about it in a fresh light so as to encourage its observance more frequently.
