Our vision is summed up by our name – Mosaic Church.
A mosaic is an image made up of many different pieces, which may be broken and misshapen, but when they are brought together they make up something beautiful.
Our vision as a church is to be:
- A mosaic of people coming together in faith in Jesus
- A mosaic of ministries working together to make a difference in our community and our city
- A mosaic of expressions of church
- A mosaic of partnerships with other churches for a common purpose
Mark and Deana Button moved to Hull in 2013 to lead a new expression of church, which ultimately became Mosaic Church. They have been in church leadership for over 10 years, having first been in Ruskington (Lincolnshire), before coming to Hull.
They have two children, Micah and Georgia.
There is also a Core Team that supports Mark and Deana and together they oversee all that the church does.
We are a local Christian Church but part of the historic and global Christian faith. Our core beliefs are summed up in the ancient Nicene Creed:
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth,
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,
We believe in one holy, universal Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
Further to this, we believe in an ongoing life of discipleship as we seek to grow in our faith. To help us in this, we build our lives on several key practices that we believe are important for all Christians:
- Prayer and Bible reading. We believe the Bible is God’s word to us and through prayer we communicate with God.
- Church attendance. Being with other Christians is vital for helping us grow. It is also the means by which God wants to change our world as we live Christ-like lives.
- Communion. Communion (the Lord’s Supper or Eucharist) has been practiced in the Church from the beginning. We eat bread and drink juice to remind us of Jesus’ body and blood and the sacrifice he made for our sins.
- Baptism. Baptism is an important step for Christians as a symbolic means of demonstrating new life in Jesus. We believe this should be practiced when people have made a decision to become a Christian.
