My website is www.GoldenSprings.org and the spam link keeps showing up in the header right above the logo name of the church.  It started out as viagra and now its a payday loan.  When I go into the Wordpress editor and re-save the header file (it doesn't show any strange code around the header) the link goes away but then comes back a few days later.  I don't know what to do to find out how to get rid of it completely.  Can anyone help?

Your site has been compromised and attackers are executing remote commands that insert the spam links.  Please read this article for more information:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Blogs/WordPress/A_10806-Recovering-From-and-Preventing-WordPress-Site-Hacks.html

Short version:

1) If you are not able to follow the technical stuff in the article, skip right to "Hire Sucuri or StopTheHacker and pay them to remove and harden the site"

2) If you are technically minded, look through all plugin and theme files for encrypted code as well as all entries in wp-content and wp-options tables in the MySQL.
