Jesus has invited us on an amazing adventure to follow Him. Mark 1:17
Jesus calls us to come and follow Him. The call is radical as we surrender all that we are and all that we have to Jesus as our Lord and King. This begins the greatest adventure of our lives. As God’s unconditional love permeates our hearts and minds, we will be transformed. We will literally go places we never thought imaginable. We will serve others in ways that we never thought imaginable. We will love one another as Christ loved us. We will sacrifice for one another in ways that we never imagined.
The first message Jesus preached is from Isaiah 61:1,2 - “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Jesus announced that this Scripture has been fulfilled. A Scripture, which pointed to His job description.
Jesus came to give us freedom. This freedom is found through the sacrifice Jesus made for us by substituting His life for our life upon the cross. When we surrender our lives to Jesus, our eyes are opened; we are no longer spiritually blind. Jesus makes the Scriptures clear to us (Luke 24:45-49).
In receiving Jesus’ extravagant gift of infinite love our relationship with God the Father is restored. The Father now sees us through His Son’s righteousness. We become a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Our lives begin to be restored by God’s grace. This is the power of the resurrection.
We have been blessed by God to be a blessing to others; therefore, we desire to be generous to those in our midst. Genesis 12:2, 3
We worship a generous God who extravagantly poured out His love for us by sending His only Son on a rescue mission to save us. We believe that the Lord is calling Mosaic to be generous with the resources He has given to us. These resources include finances, time, and people. We desire to be outward focused with the resources the Lord has entrusted to us.
We desire to be a beautiful mosaic that includes all people regardless of ability, age, gender, and ethnicity. 1 Corinthians 12:1-31
We desire to be a church that looks like heaven. We want to celebrate the diversity found in our giftedness, our ethnic background, our abilities, our gender, and our age. These diversities enable us to learn more about who God is as He created us in His image.
