This Easter, Pastor Erwin McManus invites us to step into the story our souls long for.   He shares from the book of Matthew that Jesus created a tear in the fabric of time and space when he died on the cross.    The separation between God and humanity caused by fear, despair, and hate was torn in two as Jesus conquered darkness and rose from the dead.   When the tomb was found empty, it shattered humanity’s understanding of the world. Jesus gave us an invitation to experience an...

We go back into the archives to hear a message from 2014 that breaks down the idea that humanity often sees God through the lens of human experience. That despite our perceptions, we are created in the image and likeness of God, and our souls inherently recognize this truth. Even when individuals don't believe in God, God believes in them.

Pastor Erwin McManus brought a riveting new message on the importance of living a life deeply connected to God.  Pulling from a fascinating story about Elijah and Ahab in the Scriptures, Pastor Erwin points out that there are 4 different levels of awareness that we can decide to live in.  Unconscious: unaware of God's movement around us. Experiential: only believe in what can be seen, heard, and touched.  Spiritual: aware that a spiritual realm exists. Transcendent: in step with the...

Pastor Erwin Raphael McManus brought a life-changing message on the importance of cultivating mental toughness.   He shared that as people of faith, we often assume God will give us an easier life when we give our lives to him. In contrast, Pastor Erwin shared that God doesn't want to make our lives easier — he wants to make us tougher.   In Romans 8, we're reminded that we have everything we need to face the challenges that come our way because life is hard but we are tougher than we...

For some of us, having faith in God comes more naturally. For others, it isn’t that simple. In this message from August of 2018, Pastor Erwin McManus walks us through his journey of finding faith. He explains that to him, the journey to Jesus was just that: a journey! Growing up he experienced a wide array of religions and was exposed to many world views. He did not imagine being a pastor when he grew up. As we navigate our way through life, we are informed about different religions and...

A special Christmas Eve message from Mosaic Lead Pastor Erwin Raphael McManus, recorded at Mosaic Hollywood on December 24, 2023. Pastor Erwin shows us the power in understanding that our souls do not need what God can do for us, but God Himself with us. This is why the story of Jesus still resonates within the human heart two thousand years after his birth. At the core of who we are, we desperately long to be found, and God stepping into human history is our divine intervention.

This week dig into the archives from a message from 2014. A Tribute to Robin Williams by Erwin Raphael McManus: "I had the beautiful privilege of running into Robin Williams years ago. He was gracious and kind and warm and deeply human. He was also the funniest person I have ever encountered in my life. He was funnier in a spontaneous 10 minutes on the way to the men's room than most are on stage delivering their best material. What struck me most was how generous he was with his time and...

Joshua‬ ‭3‬:‭1-17‬ "Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelites set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. After three days the officers went throughout the camp, giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before. But keep a distance of...

What are we so afraid of? In this reflective conversation, Mosaic Lead Pastor Erwin McManus helps us unpack how fear impacts our lives and can paralyze us from stepping into the future we long for.  He encourages us to look at fear differently. What if our fear is not situational but simply a reality we have allowed to rule us from the inside-out? What if the things we are most afraid of are simply the objects we project our innermost fears onto? What if living courageously was a choice? In...

"Everything you do is an act of influence." - Erwin McManus Pastor and author Erwin McManus continues our journey with "Chasing Daylight". We underestimate the importance of influence when we choose to prioritize gaining success, financial gain, or command. The power of our influence cannot hindered by a lack of resources or authority. Authority shapes what a person does, but not their character; authority does not equal influence and it does not have the same result. The more energy and...
