Mission Statement:

Sienna Ranch is a Christ centered community living out the story of God’s redemptive love everyday and everywhere.

Christ Centered Community

Jesus Christ calls us together, holds us together, and reconciles us together. Christ rejoices and showcases how a diverse group of people can be unified by being centered on and around Him. Together we are the body of Christ.

The Story of God’s Redemptive Love

We are the beneficiaries and voices of the beautiful news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. What does that mean? It means that God is --- pick your favorite word --- redeeming, liberating, saving, rescuing, emancipating, releasing, freeing us from death and separation from Him by sacrificing His Son, Jesus, to pay for our sins. It’s His gift to us. To you. In return we receive Him as our savior and Lord. The benefits of His gift, eternal life, a relationship with God, start the day we receive Him, and extend to every day.

Living Out

We believe that how we live outside of Sunday church is more important than all we do inside. That is not to minimize Sunday at all, but our Monday through Saturday everyday lives at home, in school, at work and in community should reflect our relationship with Christ. There is a direct connection between what we believe and how we live.

Everyday and Everywhere

We live to glorify God in the world of the arts, business, education, health/medicine, law/government, media, science, and sports/entertainment. Glorifying God everywhere, every way, every one, every day.

Soli Deo Gloria – we live for the glory of God alone.

Core Values

In a constantly changing world, our core values describe who we are, how we live, and what we treasure.  Sienna Ranch Baptist Church is built upon eight timeless core values.

The Preeminence of God

The sovereign creator and Lord of the universe, revealed through Jesus Christ, is above all and rules over all. There is no one, no thing, nor compilation of things, greater, wiser, more loving, more true or more powerful than God. We honor the preeminence (unequaled supremacy) of God by worshipping Him, and Him alone.

"The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;" Psalm 24:1

"If serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

Biblical Authority

The Bible is the absolute true Word of God. We treasure the entire Word of God as the source of truth in the world. It is always timeless and it is always timely. We submit to its authority in all areas of our life. When exercised properly, as God intended, authority blesses and protects those under it.

“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8

“Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4

“...his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:2

Living The Word

Key to the Christian life is more than simply knowing Bible verses and stories. It is to have an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and putting your trust and faith in Him. It is for our everyday lives at home, school, work and play to reflect our relationship with Christ, putting into practice and living the Word of God daily in all relationships and in all situations.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Faith at Home

God intends for faith in Him be passed down from one generation to the next, starting in the home – your home and my home. For this reason, what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. The church’s role is to equip parents and walk beside them as they become their children’s primary faith trainers.

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:4-7

Authentic Community

Pride, pretenses, and façades must be dropped for real and honest fellowship and growth to take place. In an authentic community you will know that you are loved for who you are, and that you are equally as important as any other person. The church is described as the body of Christ. Each follower of Jesus needs the body, and is needed by the body.

“Just as a body is one but has many parts, all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

Servant Lifestyle

In our culture, and in most cultures, greatness is measured by the number of people that serve you.  Jesus, God in the flesh, gave us the example of God.  Jesus served; so too are we to serve one another.  Humility is seen by many as weakness, but seen by God as greatness.  We are here to serve.

“’…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.  For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’" Mark 10:41-45

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” James 4:10

Missional Living

God is on a mission. He is at work in the world reuniting mankind and restoring creation to Himself. He is seeking to save the lost and invite them to follow Him. As followers of Jesus we are sent to join God in His work anywhere from next door to any point in the world. We are on mission with God. 

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” Luke 19:10

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Matthew 28:19

Kingdom Living

It is so easy to get caught up in building our own little individual kingdoms, whether around ourselves or even around our own church.  Sienna Ranch works together with all followers of Jesus Christ.  We are citizens of the same kingdom, following the same Lord.  We are not in competition with other believers or churches.  When they fail, we fail; when they succeed, we succeed.  We work together to advance God’s kingdom and not ours.

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14
