If You're Not Dead
God's Not Done

Our Beliefs

We understand that not everyone who shows up at Mosaic will share our Christian beliefs. Good—we want you to know that no matter who you are, what you believe, or where you come from, we're glad you're here.

God

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, perfect in love and holiness, Who exists as three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and entered human form by the miracle of the Virgin Birth, that He lived a sinless life, and that He died for our sins. Christ is the only mediator through whose work we are redeemed. We believe that He rose again on the third day and now sits at the right hand of God as our Advocate.
Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1; John 1:14; John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 1:3; 1 John 2:1

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God. His ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe that He brings about the new birth, indwells, baptizes, seals, anoints, and endows all who are regenerated with spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit also leads believers who daily surrender their life to Him by guiding, teaching, sanctifying, and filling them.
John 15:26; John 16:8; John 3:3-6; John 14:16-17; John 14:26

Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word and is the sole written revelation that rules the faith and practice for all Christians and alone can bind the conscience. We believe that God has preserved His Word and that by His power it has been kept from being lost, destroyed, or diluted with error.
2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:89; 1 Peter 1:23, 1 Peter 1:25

Sin

We believe that all people are created in the image of God. At the same time, because of Adam’s sin, all people are sinful by nature and choice. Apart from forgiveness through Jesus Christ, all are lost and alienated from God
Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3

Salvation

We believe that salvation rests solely on the work of God’s grace for us and in us. We are justified by grace through faith alone. Christ’s death is the only payment for sin that God will accept. Additionally, the righteousness of Christ is transferred to us by faith and is the only merit or righteousness that God will accept. We possess the righteousness of Christ in the sight of God. All who truly believe in Christ are born again and become the children of God. All true believers, once saved, are kept by God’s power, not our own, and are thus secure in Christ forever.
John 1:12-13; John 6:37-40; John 10:27-30; Romans 3:23-26; Romans 4:1-3; Romans 8:1; Romans 8:38-39; Ephesians 2:8-9

Judgment

We believe in the resurrection of the body. At death the spirits of the saved go immediately to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven, and the unsaved descend immediately into Hell until the final Day of Judgment. At that time, their bodies shall be raised from the grave: the saved will return to be in Heaven with Christ, the lost will be judged and returned to Hell
Luke 16:19-31; Luke 23:43; Revelation 20:11-15

Church

We believe that the Church consists of all who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior. The local church exists to exalt Christ, encourage believers, and evangelize the world. We believe that every local church is free to govern its own affairs under Christ and should seek to support the unity of all Christ-honoring churches and ministries.
Colossians 1:28; Ephesians 4:3-6
