Sienna Ranch is a Christ centered community living out the story of God’s redemptive love everyday and everywhere.
Christ Centered CommunityJesus 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 LoveWe 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 OutWe 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 EverywhereWe 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 ValuesIn 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 GodThe 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.
"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 AuthorityThe 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.
“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 WordKey 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.
Faith at HomeGod 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.
Authentic CommunityPride, 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.
“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 LifestyleIn 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.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” James 4:10
Missional LivingGod 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.
“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
