About Faith Lutheran Church of Rotonda West
Faith Lutheran Church has a more than forty year history in serving the people from Englewood to Placida, Cape Haze to our home in Rotonda West and beyond. But, although we have a forty year history, the people of Faith are not about the past. We serve people now and set our sights on dynamically moving forward into the future.
Using a congregation-wide series of small and large group discussions, Faith recently affirmed that our vision is “Listening to God, Caring for All.” We believe that we are called by God through the Word and that He has given us the privilege of caring for His world.
This is expressed through five abiding principles that state how Grace Wins:
- As we worship Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
- As we love one another, welcoming everyone.
- As we serve, inspired by the Holy Spirit.
- As a deep faith is taught and caught.
- As we make witness and mission our life.
