Village of Faith, or as we are known by most of our members, "VOF," originally met early on Sunday mornings at the First Baptist Church of Lady Lake. In 2010, we moved into our first-phase building at current location at the corner of CR 127 and 462.
We are a participating member of both the Florida Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention. It is our honor to tithe ten percent of our annual budget to the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention so that missionaries will be better equipped to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ here at home and around the world.
The people of Village of Faith are guided by our Mission Statement, "To know Christ and to make Him known." We are inspired to continue our efforts and Spirit-driven desire to do God's work, delivering the Gospel to as many people as possible, as clearly as possible -- all to the glory of God. We are a unique church in that we love others genuinely and are often referred to by those who visit us as "the friendliest church in town." It's something you would truly have to experience to understand.
To build a thriving church of vibrant believers led by a team of spirit-empowered leaders using their gifts, talents, and resources to reach the lost, build believers, and touch our community, city, nation, and world with God's irresistible love and amazing grace.
• Reach everyone we can with the hope of Jesus
• Touch the broken, bruised, and bound with the love of God
• Teach the Word of God, the ways of God, and true worship of God
• Change ourselves, our community, our city, and our world by living out The Great Commandment, "Love the Lord with all your heart..." (Matthew 22:37) and obeying The Great Commission, "Go into all the world..." (Mark 16:15).
Founded in 2006, under the commission of the Florida Baptist Convention and First Baptist Church of Belleview, Florida, Village of Faith is a group of Christ followers who exist to spread the good news of forgiveness, salvation, and hope through Jesus Christ. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and under the direction of God’s Word, we equip believers of Christ to share their faith and increase in their knowledge of the Lord, His work, and their responsibility to serve Him. No matter your season of life, your knowledge of God, or your past or current circumstances, we trust you will find Village of Faith to be a place where it’s easy to get started, get connected, and grow in your knowledge and love for the Lord.
