At Mosaic, we are worshipers of God seeking to live radically as a community of compassion, art and freedom.
Theologian JÃ¼rgen Moltmann said, "Christians are 'artists' and their art is their life. But their life in turn is the expression of their faith and their experiences of the Spirit of Christ. Christian life is... ars Deo vivendi. The art of living with God for God. We are the 'artists of life' and we are called individually and communally to shape our life into an art work which brings into expression something of the beauty of divine grace and the freedom of divine love."
Creative worship is an expression of our devotion to God and a response to his generosity toward us. We believe that everyone is an artist, and God, desiring us to worship him with all of our beings, includes our creative natures in this call. Through music, painting, sketching, dancing, however his Spirit inspires us, God wants us to respond to him.
We also see art as a tool that God, the Master Artist, uses to restore people and communities. When those who have been hurt, pushed down or ignored are given a space and medium to express and create art, God works this into healing and see us become the people he created us to be. Many of us have never had a place or means to â€œmake artâ€ or be creative - we hope Mosaic gives these opportunities freely.
In our name and in what we believe, freedom follows art. Stand up, sit down, be silent or sing, cry or laugh or both. Be free to be your true self -- no games, masks or self righteousness. We are all broken and in need of God. Come as you are, respond as you feel called, receive whatever God wants to give to and through you.
