WHAT WE BELIEVE

WE BELIEVE that God is eternal, all-powerful, all k nowing, ever present, ever working, holy, just, gracious, merciful, and loving.  We believe that one true God has made Himself known in three distinct persons as God the Father, God the Son – Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that God has revealed Himself through His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus comes to earth to show us God; to show us how man is to live in relation with God (Jesus being the standard we live by); and to bridge the insurmountable gap that exists between the Holy God and sinful man.  (Jesus the Savior)

WE BELIEVE that all of mankind, with the exception of Jesus, is sinful and in need of a Savior.

WE BELIEVE Jesus died on the cross in our place, for our sins, to bring us to God.  Mankind is saved by the grace of God, not the works of man, by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ is the only way to God.

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit resides in the life of every believer to work in our lives bringing about the character of Christ in us; through our lives carrying out the work of God; and as the promise and guarantee of salvation.

WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the absolute, authoritative, timeless and timely Word of God.  The Bible is true and the standard by which we live.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the head of the church who draws His people together into bodies of believers to carry out his purposes.

WE BELIEVE that every member of Sienna Ranch is a minister and is gifted by God for unique and specific ministry that is essential to the health and growth of each member of the entire body.  We are to use our God given gifts and abilities to glorify God and to build up one another.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is certainly and unexpectedly coming back and that all of mankind will be judged based on their individual relationship with Jesus.  We are to live in readiness of His return.  The lost are condemned for eternity in hell.  The saved are destined for the glory of heaven.
