The beginning of John's gospel invites us to consider the life-changing truth that "the Word became flesh and took up residence among us" (1:14). The incarnation as it is called, was where God revealed Himself in the most amazing sense; he literally came down to make a way for us!
God didn't just create the world, set building blocks for life on earth, set us in orbit around the sun, spinning on axis and just sit back and watch. He actively infused himself through His Son into the mess, into the junk, into the fray. That's the power of incarnation; it shows care and concern and ultimately sacrifice that almost incomprehensible. Through the incarnation, we connect with God through the Son by the Spirit. He has forever created a link that cannot be broken.
The name of this ministry, UPLINK, is designed to help God's people connect with their creator. An uplink by definition is the establishment of a connection by parties on the ground to that which is above, typically above the earth, such as a satellite. Communication is established between the ground and that which is above. The desire of every Christian is to have a closer link to He who reigns as well as to be linked to others who who follow Jesus. The response to such a connection will always be worship!
Jesus calls for unity within His church. Unfortunately, many have had the experience in ‘worship wars’ in various fellowships, where musical styles or preferences have torn at the togetherness of a believing group of folks. We at HCF believe that such division, where it exists, can be a real destructive force to a community of believers.
Our Savior tells us in the Scripture above that where the church is unified the result is the world may know about Him and that He loves them! So our unity is a vehicle of testimony by itself! What an amazing and powerful concept!
This site comes from a heart of desiring unity. New songs and new methods can be overwhelming for some, so this site was designed to offer the opportunity to come alongside the worship team and join us in enjoying these songs. Maybe you heard a song this past week that you want to add to your playlist? Maybe your heart is having a heart time processing all these new songs with joy and you need a way to connect more quickly to these new songs? We hope this site will further your relationship and commitment to the Lord however He uses it in your life.
