The Link Church - Can you afford to miss it?! || Sunday 10:05 || WS9 8AN

Vision is the ability to see what is to be and gives us direction, focus and stability. The Bible tells us that “without vision we shall perish”. Here at The Link Church, our vision is to build a large, exciting mature Church whose members love God and one another whilst reaching out to the wider community. We believe we are on a journey and that the Lord is building and restoring the church according to His pattern as laid down in the bible. When Jesus returns, He is coming back for a victorious, powerful and pure church. The heart then, of this church, is for growth. It is to see people of all ages coming to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and to be able to enjoy a close, intimate relationship with Him. It is to see a glorious, united church which will make a difference in this land. Nothing else will satisfy, will give us the love, peace, joy and purpose we all desire for our life.

Mission: + Relationships firstly with God through our love for His son Jesus Christ and with one another, believing all of us are unique, special and to be loved + Worship which is fresh, lively and in line with what the bible teaches +Fellowship meeting the many needs of people through one-to-one, small and large groups + Team where everyone has a place and an important part to play + Teaching and preaching which is exciting, relevant, clear and consistent with the bible + Young People who are not only the next generation but our future and who have unique qualities and gifting's + Excellence in the quality of our service and facilities + Integrity and authenticity in all that we say and do + Growth through sharing and deomstrating the love that Jesus has for all of us + Maturity of character seeking that al may reach their God given potential + People who really matter to us, both locally and further afield

Pastor Douglas & April Miller, The Link Church

Here’s the latest post from our pastor, Pastor Douglas & April Miller, The Link Church:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord,’ did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” Matthew 7:21-23
These words spoken by Jesus at the end of the Sermon on the Mount are, I consider, the scariest and most challenging in the Bible. Jesus says here that there will be people who die, thinking they had a relationship with Jesus, but who are not Christians at all; and, instead of going to heaven as they thought; they will, instead, be destined for hell.
Now…that’s scary!
These people not only refer to Jesus as their Lord, but they performed miracles, seemingly in Jesus’ name. They thought they were in a right relationship with Jesus, and yet Jesus refers to them as evildoers, those who practice lawlessness, men and woman who he never knew.
So,…if these guys thought they were Christians, and they did miracles and prophesied and drove out demons, what hope do we have, where does that leave me, how do I know I am a Christian, how do I know I will go to heaven when I die?
I want to give you 6 points over the next few weeks which I hope will reassure you as Christians. Challenging as these verses are; if the result is that you become someone who is more determined to draw closer to Christ, more challenged to focus, not on the things of this world, but on your Lord and Saviour; then this Blog will have done it’s job.
Point number one;-
It’s not about words alone
Whilst words can be powerful, God is looking for more than just a few “choice” words. Just saying ‘Lord, Lord’ doesn’t make you a Christian. ‘Words’ are not enough, an outward profession of faith is not enough, nor is saying a few specially chosen words after an altar call.
You’ve got to mean it and it’s got to last!
They called him Lord which means Master, supreme in authority, one who rules others, and yet they clearly didn’t live as people who were ruled by Christ. He was not their Lord! He didn’t rule their lives. He didn’t direct their paths. He didn’t even ‘know’ them, let alone rule over them!
It’s more than just, “say these words,” it’s putting them into practice as Matthew tells us in the very next verse (v.24). The wise man hears the words of Jesus, and puts them into practice.
We will continue to consider this most challenging piece of Scripture next time.
May God richly bless you!

On this Black Friday it is easy to get carried away with buying more “stuff”. But remember, no number of possessions can satisfy. God is the one who meets all of your needs.

God has placed a light in you- let it shine through your actions this week.

At the start of a new working week, it’s easy to grumble about the demands of the job, especially as we long for the rest of the weekend. However, we need to remember that our work (paid or unpaid, inside or outside of the home) is seen by God. We don’t work for approval of others but of God. So embrace your work this week.

Let’s set out to spend time with God this week!

We had a great service at Church this morning. Israel shared a Word, continuing his series on deception.

Some people are easy to love and some people are not. But it’s not about who they are. You can choose to approach everything and everyone in love, because you have experienced true love from God.

No matter what you’re passing through this week, remember God is with you. He is greater than any circumstance!

Acts 26:16-18 God speaks to Saul (who became Paul):

‘Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

God’s timing (and God’s way) is always the best- trust him wholeheartedly with the desires and longings of your heart, don’t try to figure everything out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed if you do.

Being a follower of Christ (Christian) involves denying yourself and the things you desire. Can you accept the challenge?

Pastor Douglas & April Miller, The Link Church

Here’s the latest post from Pastor Douglas & April Miller, The Link Church:

Many people today do not think! And yet thinking for ourselves is very important. The Bible tells us in Proverbs, the Book of Wisdom that; ”as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” The way you think says much about the type of person you are. Today in the West, most people do not believe in God, and especially so amongst the young. This is not surprising as schools are no longer teaching the Bible, and some, in the name of political correctness, no longer have a Carol Service or nativity play at Christmas or celebrate Easter. In this country, less than 5% of the population attend a Christian church.
Most people today believe in relativism;-. “what you believe is true for you, what I believe is true for me. It is not for anyone to question or judge the behaviour, actions and decisions of anyone else.” Relativism is directly opposed to God who represents authority and absolutes, because it rejects moral absolutes; and postmodernism, which many believe in, rejects all absolutes, arguing that there is no absolute truth.
And yet, if you really think about it, this just doesn’t make any sense. Accuse me of being narrow minded by all means; but 2+2 =4, it does not equal 5,6,7,8 or 10 or any other number. Truth is that the answer is 4. And truth is absolute. If my wife asks me to see if there is any milk in the fridge, there either is or there isn’t, it doesn’t matter what she or I thinks or feels. What matters is the truth, not how we feel about it.
And most people believe in evolution. However, evolution is not a science it’s a religion because it is based, not on facts, but on faith. It’s a belief system invented by man to try to explain the world and how it works whilst excluding God. If there is no God, then we are the result of chance random processes and there is no absolute authority. And if there is no absolute authority then everyone can do what they like or hope to get away with, and we can then write our own rules.
The reason people have largely rejected Christianity is because they do not want to be accountable to anyone or to be told what they can or cannot do. And so, they believe in evolution, even though it does not make any sense or there is no evidence for it. Many believe in the “Big Bang”, that the universe began with an explosion of nothing; and that everything that now exists came from it. However, this contradicts a known scientific law which states that matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed. You can’t make something out of nothing. Besides, explosions never produce order (and the universe is orderly); but chaos. When terrorists blow up a hotel or a hospital, what is the result? Death, carnage and chaos! Explosions never produce life, structure and order – everyone knows that. That’s why they blow them up – to produce chaos.
It just doesn’t make any sense!
(Next week I will continue this discussion )

May God richly bless you!
