OVERVIEW:

Mosaic San Diego is a community of followers of Jesus Christ, committed to live by faith, to be known by love, and to be a voice of hope. The name of our community comes both from the diversity of our members, and from the symbolism of a broken and fragmented humanity which can become a work of beauty under the artful hands of God. We welcome people from all walks of life, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey.

MISSION:

To live by Faith, to be known by Love, and to be a voice of Hope.

VISION:

To be a spiritual reference point throughout San Diego, and a sending base to the ends of the Earth.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

The absolute best way to understand and learn about any community is to experience it on the relational level. Statements of faith can tell you what a community of faith’s beliefs are, but they can’t tell you who they are. If you’d like to discover who we are at Mosaic San Diego, please come to one of our gatherings on Sundays.

If you are unable to make it to San Diego, and you want a more in-depth and relevant look at our core values and philosophy of ministry, please pick up a copy of the book An Unstoppable Force, by Erwin Raphael McManus. You can get it on sale at Amazon or probably find it at any major bookstore.

If the actual “statements of faith” is what you are still interested in, please reference the Baptist Faith and Message HERE
