What We Believe

Mosaic is a Christian church. We live for God, strive to walk in Jesus’ steps and listen to what the Bible, God’s Word, has to say about life and living.

It is only because of Jesus Christ – His life, death and resurrection – that we find ourselves in this amazing reality of being called God’s children. We believe that He did all to restore our relationship with God. Because of this trust we are healed, renewed, forgiven, loved, embraced by God Himself. It is our desire and passion to share that gift of restored relationship with God and the hope that comes with it with everyone God brings into our everyday steps.

We certainly don’t claim to have arrived – but Jesus covers for our failures and shortcomings making us forever sons and daughters of God and embraced in grace we choose to do the same for others.

Here are some essential beliefs we hold on to as a church – we believe in:

  • The Oneness of God and unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
    Deuteronomy 4:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; Ephesians 4:4-5; John 20:17; John 1:1, 20:28; Hebrews 1:8; Acts 5:3-4
  • The sovereignty (lordship) of God over all creation and history
    Genesis 1-3; Acts 17:24-31; Hebrews 9:27;
  • The divine inspiration and entire trust-worthiness of the Bible and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and life.
    2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
  • The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His miracles, His sacrificial death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of our Heavenly Father, and His personal and bodily return on the Day of the Lord.
    Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Hebrews 1:1-3; Titus 2:13; Revelation 5, 22:12-13
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of all men since the fall, rendering them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
    John 3:16-21; Romans 3:9-23; Ephesians 2:1-3
  • Redemption from the guilt and rule of sin solely through the sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
    Acts 4:12; Romans 3:19-26; 1 Timothy 1:15, 2:5-6; Titus 2:11-14
  • The justification of sinners by the grace of God.
    Romans 3:19-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:4-10
  • The work of the Holy Spirit who regenerates, seals, sanctifies, fills, empowers, joins all believers into the one Body of Christ, equips them with spiritual gifts, and enables them to make His work in them visible.
    John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18-21
  • The Church with a capital “C” – all believers from all corners of the world are together the family of Christ.
    Colossians 1:24; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Ephesians 5:30
  • The faith that works – when we trust Jesus we are being changed to resemble Him more and more in the choices we make, passions we pursue and things we are living for; we do not forget, however, that we are a work in progress, and we love His grace in our lives and strive to extend it to others as well.
    Ephesians 2:10; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; 1 John 3:2, 4:20-21, 5:1-3; James 2:14-26
