We desire to see God's Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Toward that end, we practice prayer, discipleship, hospitality, and fellowship with a missional focus.

prayer

Prayer is our first practice because communion with God is the end toward which we labor. The Scriptures tell us that eternal life is knowing God (John 17:3). As we know God more deeply, our lives may more closely align with His Kingdom priorities.

We also recognize that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces of evil (Eph 6:12). Redemption and reconciliation are God's work through the victory of Jesus Christ, and therefore our participation in ministry is fully dependent upon the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit. 

Therefore, house residents gather every morning to pray for one another, for the community, and for revival. The Mosaic House also hosts a weekly community prayer gathering on Monday nights at 7:00 PM. All are welcome!

Prayer is the language of the Christian community. In prayer the nature of the community becomes visible because in prayer we direct ourselves to the one who forms the community…Praying is not one of the many things the community does. Rather, it is its very being…By prayer, community is created as well as expressed.

Discipleship

At our core, we are a discipleship community on God's mission together. 

We desire to see Christians who pray always, live generously, and love deeper. Our way of life together endeavors to both embody and advance this goal for the sake of God's Kingdom. 

“The call to discipleship is a commitment solely to the person of Jesus Christ”
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Hospitality

Through Mosaic Ministries, we desire to live with our hearts open to every person. As God has welcomed us in Christ, so we practice hospitality toward to others. This type of hospitality serves as another context for prayer and discipleship.

The Mosaic community gathers each Monday night to share a meal and our experiences.  All are welcome!

A shared meal is the activity most closely tied to the reality of God’s Kingdom, just as it is the most basic expression of hospitality.

Fellowship

In Ephesians 2, Paul describes how part of Jesus' purpose was to create one new humanity, freed from divisions and united in God through the finished work of Christ’s death and resurrection. We desire to enjoy this mosaic reality regularly as a way of life. Brenda Salter-McNeil said, "For Jesus, genuine Christian unity is the supreme sign of the power and the truth of the gospel for a watching world.” The Psalmist put it this way, "How good and pleasant it is when God's people dwell together unity!"

The Christian community is not a closed circle of people embracing each other, but a forward-moving group of companions bound together by the same voice asking for their attention.
