In this final installment to his ‘Self-Mastery’ series, Pastor Erwin helps us understand one of the most valuable and precious resources God designed us both to give and to receive – our energy.
Anchored in Luke 8:40-48, Pastor Erwin draws a parallel between our lives and the story of Jesus engaging a woman whose faith activated his power. Her clear intention to be healed by Jesus caused an energy transfer that Jesus not only felt, but then declared her action as showing great faith. If your life feels constantly depleted of energy, or you want to better funnel a surplus of energy in a positive direction, this talk will empower and transform you.
Don’t miss out on how you can achieve self-mastery and walk in God’s purpose for your life, with this powerful conclusion to an incredible series!

In part two of the ‘Self-Mastery’ series, Pastor Erwin McManus brings a powerful message on the importance of attaining mastery over our thoughts. From the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Pastor Erwin reveals that our minds are the invisible place where our most significant battles take place.
He reminds us that seeking mastery over our thoughts is a spiritual act. God designed us to ‘take every thought captive,’ so that we would not allow a negative thought to take root in our minds. Every thought that does not call us to more is not a thought that aligns with God’s design for us!
This message gives you the tools and encouragement you need to help you take control of your mindset.

Part one of a new series from Pastor Erwin McManus on the importance of self-mastery. To begin the journey of self-mastery, you must first learn how to take ownership over your life and choices. When we abdicate our responsibility for our choices, we then give away our power to change our future.
Out of the context of Genesis 3, Pastor Erwin relates the story of Adam and Eve and how neither took ownership for their actions in the Garden. Pastor Erwin insightfully unpacks the scriptures and the consequences of the fall of humanity away from God’s original intention. Blame was at the root of man’s separation from God, and the beginning of a history of no ownership between humanity and our creator.
If you desire to change your life and create a better future for yourself and your family, but don’t know where to begin – this talk is for you!

Easter – “The Living”
In Luke chapter 24, Jesus’ followers arrive at the tomb where his body lay to pay their respects in mourning. There they encounter two angels who ask this revolutionary question: ‘Why are you looking for the living among the dead?’
Pastor Erwin Raphael McManus uses this moment to reveal the beauty of Easter in a new and life-changing way. So often, we can find ourselves not truly living, only existing. Without the power and love of Jesus, there is only death. But with Jesus, you find the source of life itself. When we put our trust in Jesus, we will be found among the living and not among the dead.

Good Friday – “The Desert Rose”
Pastor Erwin Raphael McManus shares a powerful Good Friday message that illuminates how Jesus redefined victory on the cross. Though Jesus’ death in John chapter 19 could have been perceived as a moment of defeat, Pastor Erwin reveals the nuances of how Jesus gave up his life willingly for all of mankind.
Jesus showed us that hope, peace and power can all be found at the cross. His death was an example of the beauty that can come from the most desolate places. In this talk, be encouraged: no matter where you are in this moment, Jesus has paved the way to a life filled with hope and beauty for you.

Celebration of Life | Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday is the day Jesus’s followers celebrated his victory before he entered the battle that would define human history. Out of John chapter 12, Mosaic Lead Pastor Erwin McManus illuminates this remarkable moment in Jesus’s life and legacy like never.
No one celebrating in the streets of Jerusalem on Palm Sunday could have known the magnitude of the victory that was yet to be won. At the intersection of the scriptures and present day, Pastor Erwin reveals that God wants us to anticipate the victory Jesus has for us before we can see it for ourselves.

I love this place
2020 has been a crazy year and I’ve seen it change churches in a way that makes them seem like they’re hopping on a band wagon. Mosaic is different. Mosaic has always been the same and they adapt yes but they have not changed their core values. Thank you for all you all do!
Please don't listen to this garbage. This pastor is complicit in abuse.
Careful who you listen to
Google this guy. There’s a lot of people who have left Mosaic because they wouldn’t address abuse issues. Jesus said be careful who you listen to, and warned us about bad fruit. Use good discernment.
