Why do we LOVE OUR CITY?
Because Jesus does! Our goal as Christians is to become more like Christ every day. As we study God’s Word, we learn about Jesus and the way He lived. Because Jesus loved people, He served them to show them that love (John 13). Our goal is the same, to serve people so they would also come to know Jesus as their personal Savior.
The church and its purpose is best expressed outside its walls. We can’t sit inside and wait for the world to come to us. We’ve got to get out in our communities and show people that we care and that there’s a God who wants to heal them.
We serve because it’s a tangible expression of the love of God for lost humanity. Words can’t always fix our pain. People may know that God loves them, but maybe they haven’t ever experienced God’s love for them in a practical way. We can be a testimony to others of what God can do in their life!
We serve because it makes us irresistible to the world. When people see our genuine love for each other and others, they can’t help but be drawn to it. Many times, serving can be a way to start conversation with people and give us an opportunity to tell them about the cross.
We serve because it tears down barriers and opens hearts. A kind word goes a long way. You never know what someone may be going through. Handing them that bottle of water or a hot meal may be just what they need for God to soften their hearts and open their minds to hear about the truth.

Mission (Regional & Beyond)
In Matthew 28, Jesus is recorded as having said, “…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” In obedience to that great commission, Mosaic is committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally in both action and with words.
Globally, we will seek to build deep, meaningful and influential relationships with missionaries that God has sent to evangelize the outer most parts of our world. We will learn as a church family about the real and felt needs of our missionaries and seek to meet them as God enables.
We will invest not only financially but also relationally by taking groups on missions adventures and by offering leadership support and mentoring to those in the field.
