At Mosaic Baptist Church our vision is for people to love and experience God and to love others completely.

Our statements of beliefs

We believe:

  • in one eternal God who created all things and who exists in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Spirit;
  • that all people are created in God’s image for relationship with God and thus have dignity and value;
  • that because the first man Adam disobeyed God, all people have sinned and have therefore become separated from God and subject to his judgement, condemnation and punishment;
  • that Jesus Christ, though the divine Son of God, came to earth as a human, lived a sinless life, was killed by crucifixion, was buried, rose again physically and returned to heaven;
  • that through his perfect obedience to the Father in his life and death and by rising from the dead, Jesus has opened the way for all people to be forgiven and restored to fellowship with God, being freed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin;
  • in the essential work of God the Spirit in making the death of Jesus effective in the individual, granting repentance toward God the Father and faith in Jesus his Son;
  • that God the Spirit lives in those who have faith in Jesus, transforming them to be more like Jesus, and equipping and empowering them to serve God;
  • that there is one universal church to which all who have faith in Jesus belong, and that the local church is the primary means that God uses to reach the world and fulfil his mission;
  • in celebrating baptism by immersion of those who have come to faith in Jesus as a witness to their participation by faith in his death, burial, and resurrection;
  • in celebrating the Lord’s supper in remembrance of Jesus’ death and in anticipation of his return;
  • in the personal return and reign of Jesus, God the Son, when the whole human race, both the living and the dead, will be held accountable to God – those who have put their faith in Jesus will experience eternal life with God and those who have not will experience eternal separation from God.
  • in the divine inspiration of the bible, being the Old and New Testaments, which is the supreme and sufficient authority in all matters of Christian belief and conduct.
