At Mosaic Church we have four foundational truths. These truths function as the core content of Mosaic Kids and are also a kind of “compass” for navigating the more robust statement of faith.
God is great: He is sovereign over all things.
God is good: He is worthy of our trust.
God is gracious: He delights in saving His people.
God is glorious: He satisfies the desires of our hearts.
We can receive salvation by grace through faith in Christ. In order to be saved, we must be born again by the Holy Spirit.
Having been saved by grace through faith in Christ, we now, by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the same grace that saves, seek to grow in our worship of, mission with, and obedience to Jesus Christ, the model of true righteousness.
We believe that a local church is a congregation of disciples of Jesus who practice life in Christ, life together, and life on mission together.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances of a local church and are meant to retell, rehearse, and practice the gospel story.
Sabbath is the weekly invitation to trust God by setting down our work in order to give our attention to the Lord in Christian fellowship, devotion, gratitude, prayer, and reflection.
We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifted each local church with all the necessary abilities and characteristics to pursue obedience, worship, and mission.
We believe Christ is coming again to judge the righteous and the unrighteous in making right what sin has made wrong and in bringing heaven to earth to restore the world fully, for good, and forever.
At Mosaic Church we practice believer’s baptism. This means that we baptize those who have professed faith in Christ and want to follow Him as Lord. While we receive members into fellowship who have been baptized as infants, we do not practice infant baptism.
At Mosaic Church we are shaped by the reformed theological tradition. This means that you will find an emphasis on the holiness/sovereignty of God, the wickedness of sin, the desperate need for the gospel, and the amazing surprise of grace.
We believe the Holy Spirit is alive and active in regeneration, empowerment and ongoing filling for the purposes of God in this world. We believe all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are still available today, but not one of them in particular is required to give evidence of the baptism or filling of the Spirit. The baptism of the Spirit accompanies regeneration and is symbolized through water baptism.
We believe the Kingdom of God was inaugurated in Jesus’ first coming and will be consummated in his second coming. We live in the “in between” where we can experience the reign of Jesus while longing for its completion as we also experience the reality that things are not yet fully as they will be within the new heaven and new earth. We acknowledge the variety of views within inaugurated eschatology and allow for this variety within our family.
We believe the church is the family of God sent by the Spirit to make disciples of Jesus to all nations throughout the world. We are saved by God’s power for God’s purposes to bring him glory in all things wherever we are. The church is always being sent by God to accomplish his mission.
At Mosaic you will find men and women leading together as brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe men and women are created in the image of God equally, yet with distinct roles in the church. Men and women are called to use their gifts fully in the ministry of the church under the leadership of biblically qualified male elders/pastors. While the office of elder is reserved for biblically qualified men, we believe that both biblically qualified men and women can be ordained and serve as deacons/ministers in the life of the church.
We believe that the primary discipling presence for children in a Christian household should be the parents. We believe that it is the role of the church and its officers to encourage, equip, and empower parents to regularly engage in the discipleship of those in their household. In light of this, we actively encourage families, at the first moment that children are able, to include their children in the corporate worship of the body as it gathers weekly.
