CALFORNIA---While Christianity is on a decline in the United States, at Mosaic and other churches like it in the Los Angeles area, the religion is thriving. Despite the neon lights, social media accounts and the casual style of dress, these churches preach about the same God and the same things that, as Reality LA’s Mr. Treat put it, “most Christians have believed for the last 2,000 years.” But they can scramble the signals of traditional churchgoers, even young ones.
