We are meeting people from all walks of life and from various backgrounds who sometimes do not quite understand what we mean when we say that we are in our launch phase. Here at Link, we do understand the confusion. We know that traditionally, church buildings are built and folks are preached into the church. There’s nothing wrong with this approach, but Link is a different church; called to a set of people who recognize that the true church starts with its people, not its building. What is a church building without the body of Christ in it?
Link is about connecting people to the life-giving power of Jesus Christ. We are about building the kingdom of God in a time when many have forgotten about God. Does Charlotte need a new church? Yes! And not just a church with walls, but a church that is about building relationships and furthering God’s agenda. This is a church that welcomes the lost, the destitute, the sick, the healthy, the rich, and the poor. Everyone is welcomed to join a place where God reigns. This is not to say that we do not value the importance of a state-of-the-art facility, where people can join together in worship. We certainly believe that God’s children should have the best things; but we just want to emphasize the value we place on reaching people. A church is its people.
If you haven’t already done so, please check out our core values. We’re about loving Jesus, helping people, building relationships, innovative excellence, contagious generosity, and about cultivating families. We do this through prayer and fellowship. Recently our launch team has begun to meet more regularly for prayer via conference call; these sessions are powerful! We want you to know that Link is a praying church; and Christ is the head of it all. We are being led by His spirit all the way. So, as we set up for our launch this fall, He is also compelling us to invite the whosoever will come to join our team! We are extending the invitation that begun in Revelation 22:17, which says The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.
It doesn’t matter where you are from; your cultural background, etc., Link wants to get to know you and connect with you. If you are desiring change, Link is the place for you. If you are desiring to connect with people who are doing great things for your city, then join us in this launch phase. You don’t have to wait for the first service to begin to make a fresh start. Get connected to a church without walls; without cultural, economical, or racial barriers. God is calling you to a blessed place, with a builder and maker, who is Christ, Jesus.
If you are ready to make a change today, it’s simple. Just fill out this brief contact form and someone from our team will personally reach out to you. We look forward to connecting with you soon!
