MOSAIC Statement of Faith
1. We believe in the authority of the Scripture
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
2. We believe in the one true God
God is Creator of all things’ infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. He is the Trine God, one in trinity, equal in power and glory.
3. We believe in Jesus as the only Savior
The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Only those who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus, become children of God.
4. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit
We affirm the fullness of the Holy Spirit’s work until the end of this age, which includes conviction of sin, comfort in times of distress, guidance, healing, illumination of the Scriptures, and the manifestation of spiritual gifts.?
5. We believe in the fallenness of natural man
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
6. We believe in the ministry of the local church
Only those who have saving faith in Jesus Christ are eligible for membership in the local church, and they shall join the church for instruction, fellowship, worship, and service.
7.We believe in the sacraments instituted by Christ
Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church. However, they are not to be regarded as a means of salvation.
8. We believe in eternal life and death
After the bodily resurrection of the dead, those who having saving faith in Christ will receive everlasting life and fellowship with the Lord, and those who do not have saving faith in Christ will receive judgment and everlasting punishment?
