How do I become a member at MOSAIC?
To be a part of our community at Mosaic, all you need to do is show up.
We will do our best to serve you, teach, share with you, love you, and allow you to serve no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.
What is the MOSAIC volunteer staff process?
Mosaic’s “Volunteer Staff” are people who have committed to serve, lead and give at the highest level at Mosaic.
Our Volunteer Staff are our ministry team leaders, community group leaders, mentors and others who make Mosaic such a unique place.
The only reason to join Volunteer Staff is if you want to make a greater commitment to invest in others.
Our Volunteer Staff commit to invest their lives in four areas, known as the “Staff Commitments.”
The Volunteer Staff Process looks like this:
- Have made a focused commitment to Christ.
- Have made a public confession of faith through baptism by immersion** (must have made a focused commitment to Christ first).
- Be connected to a Community Group or Ministry Team.
- Have completed “The Cross,” “The Pilgrimage” and the Covenant” seminars.
- Embrace the Staff Commitments.
- Be commissioned at Elements.
The Staff Commitments are:
Invest your passions – Honor God by following Christ personally and passionately. Your reputation is Christ’s reputation and the church’s reputation.
Invest your service – Participate in the life of the congregation through genuine worship, sharing, learning, and serving.
Invest your resources – Support the Gospel here and worldwide by tithing (10% of your income) and then by giving more as the Lord leads. Invest your time, skills, talents, and gifts in and through the church.
Invest your relationships – Develop authentic loving relationships with other in the church and establish significant relationships with those who do not know Jesus.
Mosaic is a huge volunteer force of talented, gifted, unique and committed unpaid “volunteer staff.” If you want to come to Mosaic to become a part of what we’re doing – to connect, learn, grow, and impact the city – we welcome you with open arms.
If interested in coming on “staff” with Mosaic, please let your community group leader know or contact someone at the Connection area of the Sunday Gatherings.
What are your core values and vision of Mosaic?
Mosaic 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.
To live by Faith, to be known by Love, and to be a voice of Hope
(1 Thess 1:3)
To be a spiritual reference point throughout Los Angeles, and a sending base to the ends of the Earth.

What is your Doctrine?
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, please come to one of our gatherings on Sundays.
If the actual “statements of faith” are what you are still interested in, please go to the Origins Project or reference the Baptist Faith and Message here.
If you are interested in learning more about Mosaic, our vision and understanding of the church we encourage you to read An Unstoppable Force: Daring to Become the Church God Had in Mind by Senior Pastor Erwin Raphael McManus. It is available for purchase at Amazon.
Do you have resources available?
We recommend purchasing books by Erwin McManus and other leaders on our team from online stores such as Amazon or your local bookstore.
