Our Mission

01.
Know God

God wants to know us personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us. Our weekend services provide a safe place to focus on what it means to know God and grow closer to Him.

02.
Find Freedom

One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people in our life to help us in the journey. Connecting with others through Small Groups is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community.

03.
Discover Purpose

We’re all an important part of God’s plan, and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose. At The Link it is our goal to help you discover how God uniquely created you and discover the plan He has for your life.

04.
Make A Difference

God’s ultimate plan for our life is for you to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. At the Link we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the church and the community.
