Mosaic Church began as a conversation in Fall 2017 between founding pastors James Hinton and Shay Osborne. While both were pastoring church plants in Winchester, they began to wonder if their two churches couldn’t accomplish more together.

As they began to pray and seek God’s direction, they brought in their church’s elders and leaders to begin dreaming and praying about what the future would hold.

After numerous conversations, prayer sessions, and fasting, the two church’s membership cast their votes on whether or not to move forward with the merger. It was at that time that Church at Winchester and Mosaic Bible Church became Mosaic of Winchester in Spring 2018.

Over the next three years, the church faced joys, trials, losses, and victories together.

In Summer 2020, co-founding pastor Shay Osborne and his family followed the calling of God to step away from ministry and relocate to Shay’s hometown. Then in January 2021, lead pastor James Hinton was informed that his full-time job would be relocating he and his family.

As the elders at Mosaic of Winchester began praying and fasting for James’s replacement, it was discovered that a pastor with nearly 20 years of pastoral experience would be move to our area and was looking for a church. In May 2021, that pastor, Jamie Limato, was called to be the new lead pastor of Mosaic.

Over the next several months, the elders of Mosaic began to examine and refocus on the mission we believe God has called us to as a church. In August 2021, it was announced that Mosaic would undergo a revamping—starting with a name and logo change. This effort is more than just a rebranding, but a complete refocusing on the mission and vision Mosaic has had from the start.

Thus, Mosaic of Winchester became Mosaic Church.

We are excited about what God has in store of us as a church, within our community, around the nation, and around the world, as we seek to see God glorified in Winchester and beyond. What started as a dream to do “better together” is now becoming even more realized than ever before, and we believe the best is yet to come!

Will you join us on this mission in Winchester and all along the Shenandoah Valley?

Our Vision

Mosaic Church exists to see Christ glorified in our community and beyond by making disciples who worship authentically, pray consistently, serve sacrificially, give abundantly, witness unashamedly, and disciple others to do the same.

Our Mission

As Mosaic Church, we Live, Love, and Labor for the Glory of Christ.

Our Core Values

  • Vertical Focus (Matt. 22:37)
  • Gospel Centrality (Col. 1:13-14)
  • Intentional Discipleship (Matt. 28:18-20)
  • Missional Community (Acts 2:42-47)
  • Kingdom Mindset (1 Cor. 3:6-7; Mark 16:15)

Scripture

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of scripture. The sixty-six books of the Bible are inerrant, complete, and authoritative. Scripture is God’s revelation and serves as the supreme standard for Christian and church guidance. We believe in the literal, grammatical, and historical method of Biblical interpretation. (Psalm 138:2; 2 Tim. 3:14-17; Heb. 4:12)

God

We believe God is one and perfect in holiness, and we worship Him as such. God is all knowing and all powerful. He is intelligent, loving, and personal. As the Ruler of the universe, all honor and glory belongs to Him. God reveals Himself in the Trinity—or three distinct persons—yet one in nature, essence, and being. (Eph. 1:14)

God the Father

God the Father is our loving Creator who expresses a fatherly attitude toward His creation. He is sovereign and is ruling over all things. He has an eternal purpose to glorify His name and all things fit perfectly into His plan. (Gen. 1:1; Matt. 6:9; Rom. 8:14-15; 1 Cor. 8:6)

God the Son

God the Son is Jesus Christ, who has eternally existed. Jesus came to earth to be born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. As the only human to live without sin, He accomplished what all men fail to do, perfectly fulfilling the will of the Father. As a perfect sacrifice, He laid down His life and took the penalty for sin when He died on the cross, paying the debt for all mankind. Through His death and resurrection, salvation is offered to all men of all times. Existing as fully God and fully man, Jesus presides over His Kingdom and will physically return one day to establish it. (Isa. 53; John 1:1-18; 2 Cor. 5:19-21; Heb. 1:1-3)

God the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit brings illumination and understanding, exalts Christ, convicts of sin, and affects regeneration. At the moment of salvation, every believer is baptized by the Holy Spirit into the family of God and is empowered by the Spirit to serve God’s Kingdom. He seals every believer until the day of redemption, establishing eternal security. (Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 2:10-14; Eph. 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21)

Man

We believe that God created man in His own image and—through disobedience—man fell into sin. Man is a sinner by nature and by choice. Because of man’s total depravity, sin separates him from a relationship with God. All are in a terrible position of being unable to reach God by their own works or good deeds. As a result of sin, every human needs a Savior. (Gen. 3; Rom. 3; 1 Cor. 15:19-22)

Salvation

We believe salvation comes by the grace of God through faith. God is sovereign over all and salvation is by grace alone—it is a free gift. No one can be good enough to merit their own redemption, but God’s love is shown through Jesus’s work and salvation is offered freely. When God calls sinners to repentance, His elect respond by repenting of sin and placing complete trust in Jesus. The sinner is made a new creation and justified in God’s sight. The believer begins to experience sanctification and is given eternal life. (John 3:3-21; Acts 2:21; Acts 16:30-31; Titus 2:11-14)

The Church

We believe that the church is the Body of Christ, carrying out the work of our King on the earth. The local church is a self-governing body of baptized believers under the authority of God and His Word. The local church observes the two ordinances of Christ: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The local church is on mission with God, meeting to worship Him and grow in grace together. They go into the world to carry out Jesus’s command to make disciples. The church seeks to expand God’s family through evangelism and serve all people by showing the love of God. Churches should seek to cooperate with other churches, denominations, and networks as a unified, universal Body, working together for the sake of the Gospel. (Matt. 16:15-19; Acts 2:41-42; 1 Cor. 12; Eph. 3:21)

Last Things

We believe in the visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ. We believe the just will have part in the resurrection of life and enjoy eternal fellowship with God; while the ungodly will come forth unto the resurrection of damnation. After judgment, the ungodly will abide in conscious existence in the torments of eternal hell; while the righteous in Christ will dwell forever in the new earth. (1 Thes. 4:14-18; 2 Thes. 2; Rev. 20:1-22:13)
