Mosaic was birthed out of the biblical passion to see the Church become the “one new humanity” Scripture tells us was Jesus’ purpose. We find this in Ephesians 2:14-16, where Jesus reconciled the ethnic groups of Jew and Gentile with one another, putting to death their ethnic hostility. Our country was founded on racial inequity and hostility and the Church has typically just went along for the ride. This was never God’s plan for society or for his Church. We have a lot of work to do, but as we spread the gospel and invite people in to become citizens of this Kingdom of God's, with these values of justice and equity, we know God is with us to create “one new humanity” because he says so in Scripture. Despite the vast history of systemic racism that has separated ethnic groups in the United States and specifically in Grand Rapids, this one new humanity is God’s will for his Church.
God started opening doors for Mosaic to be planted in 2021. We were delighted to join with the Evangelical Covenant denomination, who believes in this biblical vision of the gospel and one new humanity through and through. Mosaic’s Grand Opening was Easter 2022 and we can’t wait to continue to see God bring his biblical vision for one new humanity to fruition in our midst.
Mosaic's Core Values:
(The Good News of Jesus)
Jesus is good news! Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay for our sins. He offers his love and forgiveness as a free gift of grace for all who will receive it. This forgiveness makes us right with God and makes us citizens of God’s kingdom, which is both eternal and a present reality. As followers of Jesus, we embody Jesus’ kingdom values in our lives, making this earth a little bit more like heaven whenever we live like Jesus lived and taught.
